SuperBowl XLVI had its share of great moments, but this 2-minute Chrysler commercial narrated by the greatly-in-need-of-a-lozenge Clint Eastwood generated a good deal of buzz. From Chrysler's media site:
Sometimes a secret kept is so much more effective than when it all leaks out. Oh sure, there were stories about who the talent would be, but the real story was the message, and that held until the spot aired just before the second half kickoff. Whether you've already seen the spot that aired during the 2012 NFL Championship game, or this is your first time, we think the combination of the message of hope, optimism and can-do spirit, and the powerful delivery by a unique talent, is just what the country needed. Afterall, how many times has a team come back in the second half?

Re: Halftime in America Commercial
I never though I’d see the day when Clint Eastwood would sell out the country.
Perhaps no one told him the major stock holder in Chrysler is a foreign company (Fiat).
Perhaps no one told him that the United States” government LOANED Fiat over 12 billion dollars of taxpayer money so they could succeed in buying the company.
Perhaps Mr. Eastwood doesn’t realize that selling the company and picking up the crumbs the new owners throw on the floor is NOT making a comeback.
It is quitting and scrambling for scraps.
I wonder how much money he got paid for the commercial.
Funny, I didn’t see a big fat “owned by FIAT” banner across the bottom of the screen.
I guess reality would kind of ruin the mood…
