OnStar Commercial highlights the Valley of Fire or does it?


OnStar is running a new commercial highlighting their GPS coordinates advantage over using an in-car navigation system.

In the commercial, a group of friends call OnStar with the coordinates for their destination and after talking to the OnStar voice, the coordinates appear on their in car nav system with the words:

Valley of Fire, Overton, NV

The friends arrive at the Valley of Fire and romp around the rocks and in a pool of water.

The problem?  The commercial wasn't shot at the Valley of Fire.  The Valley of Fire has a very distinctive look to it.

Looks like it was shot somewhere along the Colorado River but it wasn't shot at the Valley of Fire.
