"Chevy Happy Grad," an ad submitted by 26-year old Long Island resident Zach Borst, will be aired during the telecast of Super Bowl XLVI, beating out submissions by independent filmmakers from around the world as part of Chevrolet's Route 66 Super Bowl ad contest.

The ads had more than 32 million total online views between December 22 and January 14.

"We asked filmmakers to depict life's journey and how Chevrolet is there along the way," said General Motors Global Chief Marketing Officer Joel Ewanick. "When I saw Zach's spot, I had to laugh, because the situation is something many families can related to -- expectation and reality. 'Happy Grad' clearly shows the passion that Chevrolet elicits."

Borst's audience on Super Bowl Sunday is expected to exceed 110 million television viewers. "Chevy Happy Grad" was filmed on location near his home on Long Island during a weather window that offered Zach, his cast and crew only four hours to complete the project.

"My Dad was a cop and worked real hard to be able to buy his kids their first cars. They were used, but mine meant the world to me," Borst said. "Then I wondered what it would look like if I got a brand new Camaro? I mean, after all, who wouldn't want a Camaro as a graduation gift?"

Borst, an aspiring filmmaker, has been producing films since his childhood and founded his own production company, Goat Farm Films, based in New York.
