Did You See The Chevy Commercial With The Cat and Michigan State Jersey?
Did you hear the one about the guy, the cat, and the truck?
Or better yet did you see it?
The Chevy Truck folks are at it again.
I don't know if you saw the first one of these commercials.
It was here that people were introduced to
Chevy's multiflex tailgate Walter the Cat.
Suffice it to say after the first round of introductions, people have gone Walter crazy.
So much so, they brought him back for round two. And if you watch carefully, there's a nod to the old Green and White in the second commercial which you absolutely can not miss. The video is up top. The Michigan State hockey jersey that's featured is below.
So what's up with the Walter phenomenon?
Well, Chevy hopes you at least paid attention to the truck for at least a couple of seconds.
It’s Walter’s second outing as a Chevy spokescat, having made his debut back in the Summer of 2021. Then, the automaker showed the go-getter feline getting to grips with the 2021 Silverado, as part of its Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games advertising. (Slashgear)
Fun fact, Walter is not CGI. As a matter of fact, for the first commercial starring this now uber-famous feline, no fewer than NINE CATS played the part.
For the original advert Chevy’s agency, Commonwealth/McCann, used nine identical tabby cats to play the role of Walter, creative lead Gary Pascoe told Muse by Clio. Each furry actor had its own talents to bring to the set, a huge 100,000 acre ranch in Utah. (Slashgear)
The newest commercial dubbed "Walter in Winter” premiered this past weekend during NFL divisional playoffs.
We can only hope and pray that Walter returns BIG GAME weekend.
