• Clint Eastwood Warns World in Super Bowl Commercial: America is Ready for a Fight

    (christwire)—America has been through some tough times since Barak Hussain Obama was elected President. Corporate America is under attack by the occupy “movement” and with it millions of Americans that form the backbone of our great land. Obama has been no help, wrecking our credit rating and selling us out at every turn to countries that hate us. However, one company isn’t going to lay there and take it. Chrysler Motors, makers of Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler and Ram vehicles, last year teamed with Eminem in a Super Bowl commercial that single handedly saved Detroit.
    In the year since last year’s inspiring commercial, Chrysler products have risen in sales more than 44%, that is more than double any automobile manufacturer worldwide during that same timeframe.

    This year Chrysler took it a step forward. Instead of focusing saving Detroit, Chrysler unveiled a 2 minute commercial focused on saving America. And instead of Eminem, American hero Clint Eastwood. The two minute commercial cost more than 10 million dollars to air, and was the longest and highest rated moment of the Super Bowl broadcast. Its ratings exceeded even the game itself.

    Tim Calkins, a marketing professor with Northwestern University’s Kellogg Super Bowl Advertising Review, said that the Chrysler ad breaks away from the otherwise familiar Super Bowl ad themes of scantily clad women, cute animals and humor. These themes are the bread and butter of ads from outfits like GoDaddy and Teleflora, featuring gorgeous women like Danica Patrick and Adrianna Lima, and Skechers, which starred a previously unknown French bulldog named Mr. Quiggly.
    But Calkins said that Chrysler aired a “stand-out ad” that was “serious and engaging.”

    “It was superb,” said Kelly O’Keefe, professor of brand strategy at Virginia Commonwealth University, immediately after Chrysler’s “It’s Halftime in America” spot aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday. “They had the courage to take the power of emotions. I got goosebumps.”

    Here is the ad in its entirety followed by the full unedited transcript. Please stand and remove any hats before viewing:

    “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.
    I’ve seen a lot of tough eras, a lot of downturns in my life. And, times when we didn’t understand each other. It seems like we’ve lost our heart at times. When the fog of division, discord, 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 is going to hear the roar of our engines. Yeah, it’s halftime America. And, our second half is about to begin.

    Again:

     This country can’t be knocked out with one punch. We get right back up again and when we do the world is going to hear the roar of our engines. Yeah, it’s halftime America. And, our second half is about to begin.

    The commercial has brought tears to the masses. After the game, people flooded Time Square in New York City. Youtube was practically useless for a while as millions of people all tried to view it at the same time.

    Actual Comments to the article include:

    Occupy movement People hate America. What matters it companies provide Jobs. It’s that Americans have jobs. Tonight, thousands of families will have food and a warm home thanks to companies like Chrysler. Best superbowl commercial ever.

    I love you, America.

    Thank you Clint Eastwood The world will hear our motors and the Japanese and Korean (expletive) can take their cars and shove them up their (expletive)

    Clint Eastwood for President!

    I can answer all of Clint’s questions with one simple answer, defeat Barack Obama this November! He is the most polarizing president in history, he is a divider not a uniter!
