It's kinda cool I saw last week or week before and couldn't figure out what it meant until the GM sign was shown at the end.

IMHO Deep and to the point "Hey the best have a bad day and we all need a little help in getting back up" Glad I could help GM get back up

I was a little confused because during the triumphant "getting back up" part, they showed the newspaper saying "Dewey defeats Truman" which was a famous inaccuracy because he actually lost that election. Aside from that, a nice commercial.

Dewey was projected to have beaten Truman just like they do projections in today's elections only back then it was on paper not tv. The paper printed the story to be the first to break the news much like false news being reported today....only it turned out Truman won by a small margin, and the papers looked like dumba$$e$. he thought he had lost and was down and out, but in fact emerged victorious i.e. GM's triumphant return from bankruptcy. History and marketing lesson concluded.

Clarification: GM paid back all the money it BORROWED from the government in the form of a LOAN.

The rest (like 45 billion) was a BAIL-OUT, which gave the US Govt. ownership of the entire company in the form of shares.

In last month's IPO, the government made back 13 billion from the sale of shares.

Right now, the feds (you and I ) still own 33% of the company.

I'd rather own ( as a US taxpayer ) part of GM than AIG, Goldman Sacks, etc. As least GM produces a real tangible product.

I'm sure they included it as an example of how the press can claim someone is defeated when they really aren't.

Not exactly. All the money that was given to GM was a loan with the intent that it would be paid back, with interest. However when General Motors Corporation (old GM) went bankrupt, the debt from the loans was converted into ownership of General Motors Company (new GM), removing the obligation to pay back them back. Additionally, General Motors Company was given one final loan in June 2009, which was repaid earlier this year.

It would be more accurate if the commercial showed a wild party with a drunken GM management person holding a bottle and teetering on the edge of the stairs, then a UAW member gives him a nudge and watches him fall down.
