Chrysler’s “It’s Halftime in America” commercial aired during tonight’s 2012 Super Bowl. The commercial stars Clint Eastwood and seeks to draw a parallel between the game and the city of Detroit.
“It’s halftime. Both teams are in their locker room discussing what they can do to win this game in the second half. It’s halftime in America, too. People are out of work and they’re hurting. And they’re all wondering what they’re going to do to make a comeback. And we’re all scared, because this isn’t a game. The people of Detroit know a little something about this. They almost lost everything. But we all pulled together, now Motor City is fighting again.”
