Clint Eastwood’s Super Bowl Halftime Pep Talk

(Brought to you by Chrysler)

  1. Since I didn’t see the Super Bowl, I appreciate the chance to see the famous ads. In all the hoo-hah about any possibly political ‘bias’ in this commercial — by Clint? by Chrysler? — people seem to overlook that one of his most recent movies, Gran Torino, was filmed in Detroit. It was about people having a hard time there. It makes him a logical spokesperson for acknowledging the difficult times, yet sowing the seeds of potential upswing. Like many good ads, it makes a movie story of its own.

  2. This was a great ad – regardless of what angst Rove the Mutt suffered in watching it. Political? Perhaps, in the final impact analysis, but so what? If chiding the ludicrous inability of our political “leaders” to pull it together and do the work they were entrusted to do is political, then so be it. If speaking to the underlying track record of the people of this country to pull together and get it done is political, then live with it guys!!

  3. Proud to say I was born in the Motor City and there is no better example of America’s resilience than that town. They are doing so many amazing things–not just build cars–pulling together, from the ashes, “hardened by fire,” making a come-back.
