It’s Halftime in America
This year I was disappointed by the Super Bowl commercials. Most of the good ones I had already seen multiple times with my girls because the companies put them online early. We loved Volkswagon’s Star Wars commercials and the baby slingshot Doritos commercial. I personally loved the nostalgia of Ferris Bueller. But by the time the Super Bowl came, I had already seen these. I was ready for a surprise.
Last year my favorite Super Bowl ad was Emimen telling the story of Detroit for Chrysler. This year during half-time one commercial made the high school students I was watching the game with speechless. For two minutes they were riveted by what was on the screen.
It was Clint Eastwood giving America a half-time speech. Whoever is currently working on TV ads for Obama or Romney, take note of this ad.
