The Chrysler car company aired a poignant Super Bowl ad touting the Motor City’s turnaround, with a message from Clint Eastwook saying the United States could learn from Detroit’s rebound.
“The people of Detroit almost lost everything,” begins the two-minute spot narrated by Eastwood that features auto workers at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant, an abandoned building and a city flag.
“We find a way through tough times … Detroit’s showing it can be done. And what’s true about them is true about all of us.”
Against a backdrop of photos reminiscent of Ronald Reagan’s campaign message, ‘It’s morning in America,’ Eastwood urges Americans not to give up:
“Now Motor City is fighting again… This country can’t be knocked out with one punch. We get right back up again and when we do, the world’s going to hear our engines.”
“It’s halftime, America. And our second half’s about to begin.”
