Whether very sexy or intensely emotional, Super Bowl ads are all about shock value -- but Chevy's fake-out ad may have taken things a bit too far.

When the spot came on, it actually looked like we were watching the big game ... and that's when things "went wrong." It seemed like the signal was lost, and millions of people thought their TVs were busted.

After the screen went black, everyone realized it was just an ad -- and people took to Twitter to both bash and praise the ad for really getting our attention. Let's just say there were lots of words that started with 'F' used ... and no, we're not referring to "football."

Okay that Chevy commercial was NOT funny
The parents have decided that the prank Chevy commercial means it's time to sell the Cobalt
"We are conditioning the consumer to purchase a Chevy every time their tv actually goes out. It's science."

I mean, when you think about it, that Chevy commercial was insulting to everybody. But their ad execs are clearly geniuses.
Thanks, Chevy ad, for reminding me that I can do without watching this game.
