Yeah. Point? It would be odd if that commercial took place somewhere in Alaska.

Uh, GM is headquartered in Detroit, as is their ad agency (I think), plus everyone knows more cars are jacked in Deetroit than anywhere else...

either way, they could have made the commercial on a highway that didn't include major street signs. maybe they're noticable to me because im pretty familiar with the detroit area but if someone really wanted to know where that was shot, all they would have to do is google civic center.

That was my thought, Detroit doesn't need anything making it look worse then it is

It probably actually happend, OnStar decided to use it in a commercial and paid the 5-0 to let them use it....it is detroit after all, why would they have to act it out when the real thing is happening

Damn.. I got 3 free months of onstar when i got my truck.. so far i cant get the phone to work cause it wont understand my voice.. I wish it was blue tooth capable so it would work with my cell phone ! and the only reason ive pushed the blue button is to set up my free trial.. oh though i do like the idea of if i Ever lock my keys in it i can call them and they'll unlock it..
