I have to admit when it comes to Trucks, I am a Chevy guy. It's not that I don't think the other companies are comparable. It's just how I grew up.
With that said, I was excited to see the new "Chevy Truck Month" commercial. You know the one with the muddy handshake to close the deal. It's great! Problem is, I couldn't share the video because the Chevrolet Truck Month website doesn't allow you to link the video to share it socially or embed it. So I did what anyone else would do. I searched for it on YouTube!
I was elated to find it after you skip past the 5 second Fox Station call in the beginning. And there it was. Just as I was copying the link and getting ready to post it I noticed Con Paulos Chevrolet added there own little addition to the end. Well done guys! I like this adaptation and your commitment to get your hands dirty! Bravo.
There was only one problem. Someone didn't check the website on the screen. Oh No! teamconpaulos.com goes nowhere! It could be anyone's mistake and this blog post is not meant highlight the typo.
We have all been guilty of this mistake at some time. I know I have! Interesting thing that occurred next. I searched for the Con Paulos. (I know! Crazy right!?) My connection to the commercial and the Con Paulos Rep at the end made me overlook the mistake and seek them out anyways. I'm sure I wasn't the only one!
What have you done in the past that was overlooked because the message was stronger than the mistake?
-I don't know if this played on tv or if the mistake was fixed later on.
