Will Farrell’s EV Mission
— General Motors (@GM) February 8, 2021
Comedian Will Farrell teamed up with GM for a hilarious Super Bowl commercial featuring the newly debuted autonomous EV, the Cadillac Lyriq. GM revealed its most anticipated autonomous EV development at CES 2021 with the Ultium Battery and is being promoted through GM’s sponsorship of the Super Bowl with the help of Will Farrell and some friends.
Farrell points out the fact that Norway has more electric cars per capita than the US and he sets out on a mission to promote EVs in the US. Farrell meets up with a couple of friends including Kenan Thompson and Aquafina encouraging them to meet him in Norway as he rides in a less than a comfortable shipping container.
GM is making a commitment to incorporate the new Ultium Battery for all types of vehicles and is currently available in the new Cadillac Lyriq. After his long journey, Farrell thinks he’s in Norway with Kenan and Aquafina in the middle of Finland but a local notifies Farrell he’s actually in Sweden.
