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 discussing what they can do to win this game in the 2nd half. It's halftime in America too. People are out of work and they're hurting, and they're all wondering what they're gonna 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 everyting. But we all pulled together, now [the] Motor City is fighting again. I've seen a lot of tough eras, a lot of downturns in my life, times when we didn't understand each other. It seems that we've lost our heart at times. The fog, the division, dischord and blame made it hard to see what lies ahead.

But after those trials, we all rallied around what was right, and acted as one. Because that's what we do. We find a way through tough times and if we can't find a way then we'll make one. All that matters now is what's ahead. How do we come from behind? How do we come together? And how do we win? Detroit's showing us it can be done. And what's true about them is true about all of us. This country can't be knocked out with one punch. We get right back up again and when we do, the world's gonna hear the roar of our engines. Yeah, it's halftime America. And the second half's about to begin.

Wow.
