Ok when I saw this last this last  2014 GMC Sierra "Cold Rolled Steel" add I could not believe my eyes. One of our subs in a TV commercial??!! Nah, I said to myself.... 

Then I started doingsome Google searches which ended with more commercials.. I was starting to doubt myself. so I changed my question to "which submarine was used in the GMC Sierra commercial?" and I found a link via Facebook to Spectral Motion. When I when to the link I found this and laughed my ass off.
