Hilarious presentation by ‘Chevy Guy’ steals World Series postgame show

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The San Francisco Giants won the World Series on Wednesday night as pitcher Madison Bumgarner stole the show with a riveting performance on the field.

But in the locker room after the game, Chevrolet’s Rikk Wilde presented Bumgarner with the World Series MVP award and a 2015 Chevrolet Colorado — and it came off as hilariously awkward.

Wilde’s delivery got most of the attention, bumbling and stumbling and fumbling through notes during the minute-long presentation.

The low point came when Wilde said: “We have also been proud of the latest and greatest technology in our truck lineup, which is the all-new, um, 2015 Chevy Colorado. Um, it combines class-winning and leading, you know, technology and stuff with Wi-Fi powered by OnStar.”

#ChevyGuy and #technologyandstuff quickly became well-developed Twitter hashtags.

Even baseball commissioner Bud Selig looked uncomfortable.

Oh, but it gets better.

The Colorado that Bumgarner received? It was recalled at the beginning of the month because of a defective air bag, according to Automotive News report.

“GM said it has notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of an ‘upcoming safety and noncompliance recall’ to fix the airbag flaw. GM said that the pickups’ driver-side airbag connections ‘were wired incorrectly during the manufacturing process,’ which could disrupt their deployment,” Automotive News wrote.

    The only explanation that would make sense here is if the person who was originally supposed to do the presentation had some emergency, and this guy was the only one who could fill in, literally at the last minute, to do it. This was worse than horrible. It was abominable.

    What is wrong with you people? Give the guy a break. He had a panic attack. If you’ve never experienced one you have no idea what it is like. So then you trash him for his weight? Idiots
