Super Bowl commercials usually aims for laughs or use sexuality to sell products.
Chrysler decided to use a different approach this year. The car company enlisted the help of actor Clint Eastwood for its commercial that ran during halftime of the game. They used the Dirty Harry star to promote a powerful message instead of focus entirely on their vehicles.
During ‘It’s Halftime in America’ commercial, Eastwood gives a pep talk to Detroit and the United States over images of the Michigan city, assembly lines, Americans and Chrysler vehicles. The 81-year old gave an optimistic speech that left many people applauding.
Eastwood said, “It’s halftime. Both teams are in their locker rooms 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 gonna do to make a comeback.

“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.”
