Did #ChevyGuy Steal The Show From World Series MVP?
After the San Francisco Giants won the World Series Wednesday night, Chevrolet official Rikk Wilde became an instant Internet sensation after making a nervous speech while presenting MVP Madison Bumgarner with the keys to a 2015 Chevrolet Colorado.
The phrase that pays? “It combines class-winning and leading, um, you know, technology and stuff.”
It’s perfectly understandable to be nervous when making a speech on national television, but the Twittersphere actually loved Wilde’s comments.
Some people thought he stole the show:

Everyone, even Chevrolet, took it really well:

So it looks like this actually working out well for General Motors Company (NYSE: GM):
Media buzz from "Chevy Guy" WS MVP presentation has been worth more than $5.2M to brand, according to @FRAnalytics.
