Carter Chevrolet Endorses Belly Bumps Over Handshakes

October 16th, 2020 by

We’ve been through some strange, unprecedented times these past few months. When we emerge from this unique moment in history, we have to come out of it willing to change. We have to be ready to embrace the new. And that’s why Carter Chevrolet is formally suggesting retiring the handshake and making belly bumps the new socially acceptable greeting du jour.

It’s not as crazy as it sounds. Imagine seeing a close friend or beloved family member after months apart. The love you feel for one another cannot be conveyed by putting your palms together — not even a hug would do. No, you’ve got to run up to one another at full speed, leap high into the air, and meet belly-to-belly. That’s how it always should have been done.

Of course, there are caveats. Belly bumping is not the best choice during a pandemic — keep six feet of distance, wear your mask, and wash your hands frequently for now and save up your belly bumps for a brighter day. You might also want to avoid belly bumping with your gramma or grampa. Yes, even if they’re as spry as a horse. The last thing you want is to get shown up when your 85-year-old nana knocks you over because they brought more thunder than you can handle. Trust us on this one — you will never, ever live it down.

One place where belly bumps are always acceptable (excluding mid-pandemic times) is Carter Chevrolet in Okarche, Oklahoma. If you stop in and get yourself a 2021 Chevrolet Suburban or a brand-new Chevy Silverado, you’re going to be super stoked. You’re going to want to celebrate. We’ve got you. We’ll be more than happy to belly bump with you. But for the time being, maybe we’ll just air belly bump at a socially safe distance on opposite sides of the room.
