The hubris to post this crap again here and over on C7. 100+ replies on the first post was not enough?

I actually fell very sorry for him in the same way I feel sorry for the girl who doesn’t get a pony on her 8th birthday.

Time to move on, the reveal is about the car and not you!

An employee on a company-paid boondoggle is an employee not on the lot selling cars for the dealership.

This is again why I think people shouldn't be allowed to post their own YouTube videos that just pander for clicks. This is the second video of him complaining. I respect the fact he helps people get into corvettes but using this forum to further his You Tube channel so he can profit off of the members here is inappropriate.

On one hand I respect his honesty and ability to share his feelings on the other hand I just don’t know what to say other than I think a short heartfelt 1 minute statement would have sufficed.

Look, Rick. I don't know anyone who could meet you and not have a smile on their face. And you have the absolute right to present yourself any way you want to. But your "fun, silly way" may not be what GM is looking for at the Reveal. They may be afraid you will show up in one of your clown suits. Your quest for celebrity can get a little old. Just sayin'. And I apologize for saying it.
