What? That people have hobbies that they're really passionate about?
Perhaps not a 'hobby', but yeah... Some people do live and breath whatever they're passionate about and try to take it to the next level. Like its a part of them.

She’s a recording artist from Toronto who’s also in this Chevy Cruze commercial.

Again what's so special about that? Gm paid her to be on it so she's there. If they paid you you'd be on it too pretending you love the cruze and are living your dream...

Interesting concept for a commercial.

See the guy in the commercial who looks like the evil old folks home worker from Happy Gilmore?

Per OP's original question, she is obviously real and released a few songs, one of which is listed and used for the ad - https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/playb ... 1363015378

The question is more like does she really drive a Cruze purchased with her own money perhaps, which we may never know.

The interested for me, and OP has failed to spell it out, is this is really as much an ad for Carol Ellyn as it is for the GMC Cruise.

Why did the ad pay so much attention to her, ie. showing her name, listing and using her song ?? GMC could gone any other way with an actress or still use Carol but make her more anonymous would be what they typically did. This, however, seems like a collaboration between a music company with car manufacturer to launch a new artist. I say that cause it seems a lot of promo for Carol Ellyn came out around the same time as the ad, too. Otherwise, Carol was probably very lucky or may be know some people in the right places.

That was my whole point when I said “interesting concept for a commercial”.

Why is Carol talking about the car being her place to focus, to unwind and to use as a recording studio etc. It seems the Cruz is not about driving. I think that is a bad example for the company to use as it would seem to advocate distracted driving.
