Tonight during the halftime segment of Super Bowl XLVI, Chrysler aired a commercial with Clint Eastwood that left everyone we know speechless and wanting more. Did you even know that is was a car commercial? Did you even care?
Yes, in football-mad America, a quote like this one —"It's halftime, America, and our second half is about to begin."— resonates.
From Chrysler (FYI: The NFL took down the original official Chrysler video from the Chrysler YouTube due to "copyright violations". WTF? The NFL is so damn paranoid, it is sad.)
UPDATE, February 6, 2012, 11 am EST: Looks like the NFL wised it and cleared the confusion. The video, which has gotten 425,000 hits in less than 12 hours is back up on Chrysler's official YouTube page.
