By now, almost everyone who saw the 2014 World Series is aware of Chevrolet executive Rikk Wilde's nervous speech and his invention of the term "technology and stuff." The entire purpose of that now-infamous presentation was to reward World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner with a brand new 2015 Chevy Colorado.
We know how that went, and we also know how Chevrolet' smart handling of the situation turned a gaffe into a genius marketing move. At the center of that hilarious fiasco was an automobile, which was supposed to be given to Bumgarner. But the San Francisco Giants pitcher has revealed in a new interview that he hasn't received the truck yet and has no idea of its whereabouts.
In his appearance on “The Dan Patrick Show” on Monday morning, Bumgarner revealed: "You know what? I was just talking about that actually. I don't have it right now. It's been so busy the last few days. I was just talking to my agent about tracking that thing down and seeing if we could get it sent to the house and have some fun with it. But as of right now, no I do not have it and I really don't know where it's at."
Of course, he also talked about the Chevy Guy incident which upstaged the entire World Series celebrations.
When asked if he came close to laughing when Wilde was struggling to get his words out, Bumgarner said: "Yeah, with all due respect to him, I didn't know what was going on. There's no doubt about it, he was pretty nervous for what he was doing."
It's a shame that the 25-year-old hasn't been able to get his hands on the 2015 Chevy Colorado yet. He grew up on a farm, and still spends most of his offseason with his extended family on their ranch. Hence, we're sure a brand new truck would mean a lot to him.
