Silversun Pickups sell Chevy
While watching Memphis choke on their free throws to hand Kansas the men's NCAA basketball championship last night, I noticed that Chevy is using Silversun Pickups' catchy mid-90s-inspired "Lazy Eye" (from 2006's Carnavas) in its commercial for the Chevy Malibu. While "Lazy Eye" is somewhat of an unconventional choice for an ad jingle, it actually makes sense. When I first heard the song almost two years ago, I remember immediately thinking how sweet it would be if there were a car that boasted 19 MPG city / 28 MPG highway, had the leading resale value in its class according to J.D. Power & Associates, and was a Consumers Digest Best Buy three years in a row. Well, that car exists, and it's called the Toyota Camry. Still, I heard if you ever take your Camry in for maintenance, some dealerships give you a Malibu as a loaner. Good on ya, Malibu!
