Chevy Guy Wins Over America After World Series

Car WTFs

Brian is a writer focusing on the automotive world. After running his 2000 Ford Taurus into the ground, he fell head over heels for a 2013 Mazda3, because Skyactiv Technology. Duh.

San Francisco Giants dynasty! Madison Bumgarner! Blah, blah, blah.

The real story of this World Series is Chevy executive Rikk Wilde, who will now forever be known as “Chevy Guy.” This lovable Farley-esque character was responsible for presenting the World Series MVP trophy and keys to a new Chevy Colorado to Madison Bumgarner. Rikk…take it away!

As an official keyboard, errr, writer for CarDebater, I’d love to sit here and make jokes about Rikk’s notecards or the pool of sweat inevitably compiling on his lower back area, but I’m not going to do that, because Rikk Wilde is a man of the people. He didn’t go up there spewing Chevy buzzwords. Instead, he gave us the all-encompassing phrase “ it has class-winning leading technology and stuff,” and that’s good enough for me.

Now you might be asking, “Why Rikk?” Why not a seasoned speaker who can deliver the corporate speech we’ve become so accustomed to hearing. Rikk has got answers.

In the end, Rikk’s #ChevyGuy moment brought far more attention to Chevy and the new Colorado than some buttoned-up, run-of-the-mill MVP presentation. It’s too bad Bud Selig missed the entire thing by glaring into the crowd like he was trying to remember where he was.
