Illustration for article titled Im Joel Ewanick, General Motors Chief Marketer, Ask Me Anything
The Morning ShiftAll your daily car news in one convenient place. Isn't your time more important?

Last night General Motors aired a Super Bowl commercial for the Chevy Silverado that not only successfully trolled their cross-town rivals at Ford — but also was the first Super Bowl ad where GM's created buzz without tripping over its own feet.

The architect of that ad — and GM's global marketing strategy — is Joel Ewanick — and he's here now to answer your questions in the comments below.

So go ahead, ask him anything.

But first, a few ground rules:

1.) The first rule of Ask Me Anything is that there are no rules about what questions you ask.

2.) Joel will be here for 45 minutes starting at 9:30 AM and he'll try to answer any question (within reason) thrown at him — but he may not get to all of you.

3.) That said, remember that this isn't Joel's first trip to the top tier of the Super Bowl rodeo — he's been here before as the architect of the Hyundai Assurance Plan. So he's used to using the Super Bowl for disruptive, buzz-generating marketing.

4.) Joel's also no virgin to our commenters — he played nicely with you in an "Ask Me Anything" at the Detroit Auto Show a year ago.

So what I'm saying is — do your worst. He's a big boy — he can take it.
