Albany- Monday General Motors launched its $50 million Hot Button promotion.

For next 56 days, GM dealers nationwide will give people the chance to get into a designated car, truck, or SUV, hit the blue Onstar button, and wait for the operator to tell them whether they've won one of 54 of their new 2004 model vehicles.

"Theres no sales pitch involved at all. You come in and say you want to mash the blue button. We have several vehicles picked out to do that, and you mash the button and there's no sales pitch whatsoever, and see if you won a vehicle," says salesman David Gilliam.

Players don't even have to test drive a vehicle to participate in the contest. The company says the odds of winning are about one in 5500.
