Upon further review, Chevrolet awards Super Bowl Colorado to Butler

(February 11, 2015) DETROIT — After consulting Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady, Chevrolet presented an all-new Colorado pickup to New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler, whose end zone interception preserved the Patriots’ victory in Super Bowl XLIX.

The Colorado was intended to be awarded to Brady, the Patriots’ quarterback, in recognition of his Super Bowl Most Valuable Player award. However, Brady and Chevrolet huddled on Monday and Chevrolet determined Butler deserved recognition for his game-saving interception.

“I’ve seen several game-changing moments in big games, and Malcom’s interception last Sunday ranks up there as one of the biggest,” said Brady. “I appreciate Chevrolet wanting to honor the Super Bowl’s top performer, and I’m glad they have agreed to award the Colorado to Malcolm.”

Said Butler: “I am ecstatic that Chevrolet has chosen to reward me with a Colorado. It is just another unreal event in what has been an incredible week.”

“Malcolm Butler’s interception was truly memorable and deserving of this recognition,” said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet Marketing. “We commend Tom Brady for being such a class act,”
