This ad has been running since the fall 2020 and everytime I hear it I have to mute it. It is the most annoying music I've heard used in an ad for a very long time.
I also cannot stand GMC trucks. I think they're huge, overpriced, gas guzzling relics made for wealthy people who don't give a damn about the environment.

I actually kinda like the song...enough to have looked into it awhile back.

Anyway, it was recorded by some child piano progidy when he was 15 or 16 in the mid-50s. He quit recording, but remained in the music biz. He's still alive.

His name is Sugar Chile Robinson in case you wanna look into it. Here's some info.

I think I've only seen it twice, and wasn't paying attention. This is the first time I saw the skunk, though I had a feeling the "get in the car" stuff might have been skunk-related.

I only hope GMC is paying Sugar Chile some nice royalties. In the meantime, it is an annoying ad!

GMC has been incredibly painful for a while now, they brought back the "Na Na..naa naa, Hey hey hey, Good bye" tune (saw that more than 10 times yesterday during the football games. 

Of course the annual GMC Xmas ad with the two spoiled 1 for you 1 for me dimwits.

Those are probably the only royalties he ever gets left.

Good GOD this commercial sucks!  i only came here to say I hate this commercial and that stupid Nananana, Hey Hey hey, Good Bye song. Where all these fools take their Ford tailgates off their stupid trucks and then meet this guy with his stupid GMC at the top of a mountain. One of our local TV stations plays it 20 times a day. Stupid as bloody hell advertising. I will NEVER buy a GMC truck.

I have a visceral dislike for this ad. In GMC's world, there are no other people on the planet. No other cars on the road and no people because they are, apparently annoying.

Along the lines of your comments... How about Buick? They don't refer to cars, they refer to Buicks.

The Go Boy Go commercial is as bad as the Bojangles with the phonograph needle being dragged across a record in a lame attempt to simulate a chicken. Of course there is still the Toyota commercial with the zoom, zoom of the race track in the background. If we are truly trying to go subliminal, why not just ask Disney to use Fantasia!
