Clint Eastwood wins Super Bowl with stirring Chrysler ad


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: As Hollywood debates which blockbuster better helped its cause with a winning Super Bowl ad campaign, America needs to rally behind this outstanding Chrysler ad featuring a solemn yet hopeful Clint Eastwood reminding us that unity is pretty much the only thing that can get our nation through its toughest times.

It’s a car ad, but only in the sense that it calls to attention the rebound of the automotive industry in Detroit.

Instead, this is a shot in the arm, a call to arms for Americans to believe in each other again … and to believe in themselves.

Eastwood uses the halftime analogy, saying that our country is figuring out how to come back, how to win. It’s a stirring ad, perhaps more effective than Eastwood’s last few films. (Sorry, sir, but the truth is the truth.)

“This country can’t be knocked out with one punch. We’ll get back up again and when we do the world’s gonna hear the roar of our engines. Yeah. It’s halftime, America,” he said. “And our second half’s about to begin.”

Can the former politician run for president?

    —–AS the last of GM was handed over to RED China.

    FACT IS, Eastwood, and Hollywood generally, have been
    selling franchise slum values while airbrushing from view the
    RED China handover.

    FURTHER, Eastwood himself, a Korea era draftee who NEVER
    went, has been delivering POST American demoralization for
    decades even as he’s BURIED without a trace the 50th and 60th
    Anniversary of the awesomely relevant

    ———————————KOREAN WAR———————————.

    NOT GOOD
