Chevy placed the ad in the USA Today Network of papers. It features a red Corvette at the bottom and six simple words: “Baby, that was much too fast.” Underneath that was 1958-2016.

The ad is of course a tip of the cap to one of Prince’s most famous songs, “Little Red Corvette”.

The song premiered on the album 1999 in 1983 and was his biggest hit at the time. It was also his first reach the top 10 in the U.S. and peaked at six in the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
