Default Could Chevy jump the gun and reveal at the All-Star game?

Traditionally, the MVP of the baseball All-Star Game gets to choose between a Chevy pickup, Camaro or Corvette. What if GM jumps the gun and debuts the Corvette tonight? That would generate a ton of publicity.

I'm sure they'll upstage their own choreographed media / VIP event for baseball

If a player like Mike Trout wins and chooses the Blazer RS a car that stickers for about 1/1000 of his yearly salary thatís like your average HARD working American who makes $40k a year winning a $40 scratch off ticket....big whoop

Upstaging your own event on a broadcast with a global audience would be a smart move. Millions of eyeballs seeing the car - in essence a free commercial for the product. And then people would talk about how they upstaged their July 18 event, creating more attention for the product. Publicity is free advertising and a no-brainer. The first commercial for the Ford Mustang ran during the Ed Sullivan show when the Beatles were the guests. We all know the results of that...

2019 and 1964 have exactly nothing in common when it comes to media and marketing. Also, last year's MLB All Star Game turned in record low ratings.

It's an idea so bad, it's not even worth coming up with insults for it.

By Friday someone is going to be convinced that 07-18 is really 07-13 and reveal is going to happen in their driveway the next morning.

Sure they do: GM had an unveiling for the new Corvette is 1953 and is having an unveiling for the new Corvette in 2019. Can't get more IN COMMON than that.

if Chevy were smart they would have rolled out the 7/18/19 mule and said "you are getting one of these, MVP!" just a little taste/tease and another plug for the reveal

Yeah, it could have been the Robbie "Sting" Ray edition!

That's the next logical step for GM. Drop a stickers-and-wheels "special edition" before the car has even officially launched

Just the tiniest bit of common sense could have prevented this thread from being created. That's about as nicely as I can put it.

From a publicity stand point that is not a bad idea. However out of the box thinking will not occur for a Corvette reveal.

I'm going to say no, they won't show it at the all-star game.
