2010 Camaro: We crashed a Press Event

A buddy of mine knows the guys at Jalopnik. Apparently, they crashed the press event in San Diego on Monday and got promptly thrown out. Turns out, cameras were rolling. Hysterical!

I thought it was funny. I like they took the initiative. Personally, I like the images of them together; I just wished the SS was there so it would be fair. I guess the V6 is fair enough for the Mustang though, LOL!

Thanks for the heads-up.

Wait I take that back. They are competition for the V6. Mere targets for the SS.

That was pretty cool for a video to promote a website. Seems Microsoft is paying them as well with a little commercial embedded in the video too.. Seems like they had their fun..

I don't think this will help Jalopnik get first dibs on any new GM releases...

GM should do some CGI where the Camaro turns into a transformer, picks up both the competition, the drivers kinda fall out first. Then smashes the cars into a pile of junk. Then turns back into Camaro.

Ok so I watched too much Transformers.

Supposedly the GM/Chevy PR folks back at headquarters thought it was amusing so I don't think it'll hurt them too much.

I'm just sad the video didn't include any burnouts.

Talking

That video was pretty funny. I don't think Ford and Dodge are any competition to Camaro.

What was the car the camera was in? It sounded pretty decent, but I couldn't make out the mirrors. It looked like the mirrors were silver?

Actually, this is great free advertising Gm doesn't have to pay for.. I wouldn't be surprised if they got a tip from an insider on purpose, jalopnick is a pretty popular site nowadays..
