Soon after the half-time performance during the Super Bowl, a two minute long Chrysler commercial aired and is now getting heat about the content it holds.
The commercial is titled 'Halftime in America' and it focuses on the rebuilding of Detroit with Clint Eastwood who narrating in the background. Images of factories, families and workers powerfully enter and exit the screen according to the Star Tribune.
The advertisement has been criticized by some for endorsing the auto-industry bailouts by the government as well as a political campaign ad for Barack Obama according to the Star Tribune.
"...There is no spin in that ad. On this I am certain," Eastwood said in a statement to Fox News late Monday night, according to CNN. "I am certainly not politically affiliated with Mr. Obama. It was meant to be a message about job growth and the spirit of America. I think all politicians will agree with it. ... If Obama or any other politician wants to run with the spirit of that ad, go for it."
"I can't stop anybody from associating themselves with a message, but it was not intended to be any type of political overture on our part," Chrysler Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne told WJR-AM in Detroit, according to CNN.
