Top of Mind Thursday – November 30, 2023: Thanks for the Memories

Leverage2Market Logo

In a time when most commercials are less than 30 seconds—with some only 10 or 15 seconds—Chevrolet hits the mark with a long-form sentimental holiday video about the power of memory.

The video walks us through a holiday gathering where Grandma’s deteriorating mental condition puts a damper on the celebration—until one of her grandchildren uncovers the old Chevy truck in the garage and takes Grandma for a ride that triggers old memories and brings her back to the family for a short while.

Will this video sell Chevy trucks? Maybe, maybe not. But in a world with escalating political conflict, two ongoing wars, massive polarization, and just general nastiness, it was nice to watch a heartwarming story and remember a less antagonistic time.

Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet. Those were the days.
