Will Ferrell had it up Here with these satisfied Norwegians and their buying habits for electric vehicles. So he’s going to do something about it and take Kenan Thompson and Awkwafina for the ride in GM’s new 90-second “Big Game” commercial.
Disturbed by the fact that more than half of all new vehicles sold in the Scandinavian country are electrically powered (thanks in large part to the generous financial incentives provided by the Norwegian government), compared to just 4% of those in the United States, Ferrell is taking it upon himself to change America’s perceptions of EV technology. His solution is simple: show the GM news Ultium battery technology by jumping into the new Hummer EV – while Thompson and Awkwafina take the wheel of the next one Cadillac Lyriq – and direction Norway. But, in classic Ferrell style, the roadtrip quickly turns into a complete anarchy involving sea containers on the high seas, sightings of caribou, and a wrong turn in Sweden.
