Plot / Description

This Big Game commercial begins with a shot of a post-apocalypse landscape the day after the Mayan predicted end of the world. Everything is destroyed, but from under a pile of rubble, a Chevy Silverado starts its engine and drives out. A man and his dog are inside and they drive through the destroyed city looking at all the damage. We see a Big Boy statue on fire, a giant damaged robot, a huge crashed UFO / flying saucer, and smoking volcanos. The man meets up with 3 other guys in Chevy trucks, and asks "Where's Dave?" Unfortunately Dave drove a Ford truck and didn't make it. While they don't have their friend Dave, they do have Twinkies which is a common post-apocalypse joke - Twinkies can last forever and survive a nuclear explosion. At the end, it starts raining frogs, showing that their end-of-world problems aren't quite over.

Voiceover

Where's Dave? 
Dave didn't drive the longest lasting, most dependable truck on the road. Dave drove a Ford. 
Twinkie? 
Yeah. 
Chevy Silverado, from the beginning of your work day to the end of the world. Chevy runs deep. 
 
(Lyrics) 
Looks like we made it 
Left each other on the way to another look 
Looks like we made it 
Or I thought so till today 
Until you were there 
Looks like we made it
