Champs of the Alcan Run
"Task Force '57 Chevrolet Trucks Are Here: Champs of the Alcan Run"
In my DVD collection of "1,001 commercials", this mini-film is one that holds a special place in my heart. It is so dramatic and earnest that I just cannot help but love it. I don't even DRIVE a truck, and this spot makes me want to run out and buy the "Task Force '57" fleet advertised.
I also love this little time capsule of the world as it used to be. I mean, I have never been to Fairbanks, but surely it must be a little more modern than this by now. It looks eerily like my hometown, now that I think about it, and surely one of Alaska's major cities must be more impressive than that in 2011.
