Now that Chevron has been found guilty — again — for intentionally dumping a massive amount of toxic oil waste in the Ecuadorean Amazon, the company has become particularly desperate to explain why it refuses to take responsibility. But then, Chevron's spokespeople have never been afraid to make absurd excuses for why their company puts profits over people.

We've received thousands of submissions for new excuses Chevron can use, but we're sure there are plenty more where those came from.

So we compiled some of the most ridiculous things Chevron spokespeople have said over the years in this video, to give you a little inspiration. These are truly some of the stupidest moments in Chevron PR.
