    23 8/11 meaning?

    Has anyone seen any advertisements recently that have the number 23 next to a electric outlet looking thing with a smiley face shape, than below that it says "8-11"?
    I saw it on the advertisement box thing they have behing home plate when watching the Yankees/Red Sox game last night. I do not understand the meaning of it and it has been driving me nuts. Anyone else seen this and have any idea the meaning of this"?

    It's an ad for the new Chevy Volt hybrid/electric car I believe...although no one can seem to tell me exactly what it means LOL.

    Edited to add..I believe the Volt becomes available on 8/11.

    Here's an article asking the same thing with some ideas. It's from top advertising trade publication Ad Age.

    The Volt isn't going into production until late next year. A****log was speculating that the correct number was 230, but that doesn't make much more since than 23 does at this point. We'll find out tomorrow.

    Re: 23 8/11 meaning?

    Unlikely 230 mpg. Liberal estimates to this point have been 80 mpg..

    Re: 23 8/11 meaning?

    I assume that this 230 mpg is only when you have a full battery. Once you get past the 40 mile battery life that they claim I'd be interested to see what kind of mileage you get then.
