Did you guys see the presentation of the C6 to Miguel Tejada at the all star game?

I quote the GM Marketing shloob who was on the field:

"Miguel, here are the keys to your new Corvette"


keys huh? :NoNo:

Well yes, there are still mechanical keys.

How do you think you open the car when the battery dies when the valet forgets to put it into reverse?

Yes, I saw that too! Beautiful Velocity Yellow! :)

Even though I've had a C6 for 11 months, I still mis-takenly use the mis-nomer of keys....can't teach old dogs new tricks. :)

Just an honest mistake, IMHO.

Zippy :z: :z:

Hell, I've had mine almost as long as Zippy and I just figured out last month that I can open the hatch from outside the car without using the key fob. :lol:

I do not see this as a big deal, but I do think GM's marketing and advertising do not really communicate very well.

I have liked some of Cadillac's new ads, but to me, Honda has always been the gold standard of advertising. Why? Two things--a geniune cleverness to the ads and an understated arrogance that says, "We make the best cars, and if you are really smart and in-touch, you'll buy one." That is a great image, as everyone wants to think they are smart and in-the-know and buy the "right" car.

GM's ads, far to often, sound like, "Have we got a deal for you...."
