Now that the chattering classes have picked apart the Chrysler-Clint Eastwood video sermonette, Micheline Maynard raises some cogent points in her Forbes.com commentary that Detroit has become a movable metaphor for a variety of American issues.
BEST OF MAXIM
This is actually a picture of him as the plane was going down. I think that we can all agree that Clint Eastwood is all that is man. Only he could create a movie at age 100 that has every racial slur I've ever even heard of (and ones that I haven't) without anybody second guessing it. In 1950 Eastwood decided to work as a lifeguard for the U.S. Army during the Korean...
We were pretty impressed with last year's Chrysler Super Bowl commercial, but it's safe to say that they have outdone themselves this year.
I love me some Eminem, but nothing beats Clint Eastwood in all his Gran Torino-esque badass glory. Hell, the only thing missing from the commercial is the 12-gauge.
It's halftime. Both teams are in their locker room...
Chrysler's Super Bowl ad featuring a gravel-voiced Clint Eastwood was pulled from the car company's official YouTube channel Monday.
Though the "Halftime in America" commercial can still be viewed elsewhere on the site, the video posted on the automaker's channel was replaced by a note that reads, "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim...
Clint Eastwood defended his now-controversial Chrysler ad that aired during the Super bowl, in which he implored the nation to overcome its differences and work together to revive the economy, denying any ties to President Obama and saying that the spot was intended to be apolitical.
The inspirational Chrysler television commercial, "It's Halftime in America," was featured during the 2012 Super Bowl and starred actor and director Clint Eastwood and gritty images of Detroit. Here is the script from the commercial.
Chrysler's Super Bowl commercial featuring Clint Eastwood is not available on Chrysler's YouTube channel because of a "copyright claim," by the NFL.
Clint Eastwood's patriotic pep talk about ''halftime in America'' might just as well have applied to NBC.
The languishing, fourth-place network, owned by Comcast Corp., needed more than a touchdown from Sunday's Super Bowl broadcast - that much was assured with a marquee rematch between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots. No, NBC needed to kick...
Super Bowl XLVI will best be remembered for the dramatic conclusion and another victory by the Giants over the Patriots. But that's not to say that its pop culture impact won't reverberate because of the many ads that aired in between the action on the gridiron. Stars like Jerry Seinfeld and Clint Eastwood stole the show during the breaks and they may be remembered by many...
Perhaps the most attention-getting Super Bowl ad — other than that dog blackmailing his owner with tortilla chips to keep quiet over a felinicide, of course — was Clint Eastwood’s paean to a resurgent auto industry in Detroit.
As I watched the Super Bowl, I was moved and impressed by the Clint Eastwood ad for Chrysler. I was proud to think that Chrysler would develop such an inspiring ad. Our country is in trouble and it is nice to see a company that still has pride and confidence in the people and products of our nation.
Clint Eastwood's "Imported from Detroit" Super Bowl commercial was filled with hope. It would be wonderful if politicians would do as the auto companies and work together toward a better future. I am very concerned about the right-to-work or anti-union fervor consuming state governments in the Midwest.
