Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Clint Eastwood Says "It's Halftime In America"

I believe we may have a leader in the clubhouse for the spot so far. And yes, it's a little corny... but I fell for it. Clint Eastwood narrated and starred in Chrysler's "Halftime In America" spot. It ran during halftime of the Superbowl and basically played up the revival of the American car industry, the revival of Detroit and of course the revival of the whole country.

I don't know if it's that I'm watching football, or if it was the recent strong jobs report... But I was humming "America F*ck Yeah" by the end of this spot. It had the same feel as the Chrysler "Imported From Detroit" spot last year with the Eminem 8 Mile song. Obama should be using this spot as is campaign theme or something... Because it was awesome.
