2016 Chevy Traverse ad Personal Space

Are you a real person? Yes? Well, we have some advice for you: if someone tries to get you to participate in a focus group, beware—they may be trying to get you in one of Chevrolet’s “Real People, Not Actors” commercials.

Why is this something to be avoided at all costs? Because there is an 86% chance that the process will make you incredibly uncomfortable, whether you are asked to perform common tasks in terrifying pitch black darkness, or have your personal space invaded by a sandy-haired man.

The latter torture is documented in this harrowing new ad for the 2016 Chevy Traverse:

The real people in this ad are subjected to real awkward confrontations, as the focus group leader gets in peoples faces, breathes in their ears, and occasionally touches them. What does all of this borderline sexual harassment serve to illustrate? The fact that there is a line, and it can be crossed.


Anyway, the point was that the 2016 Chevy Traverse has available Lane Departure Warning, a safety feature that warns drivers if they start to drift out of their lane while driving.

The focus group participants seem happy to have learned this information, but one has to wonder if it was really worth all of the anguish.
