Like everyone else, Eastwood has the right to change his mind I suppose. All the candidates do. Most everyone I know has changed their mind. Its just human to alter your judgement on issues when presented with (additional/better/verified) facts.


Right.

Equally important, perhaps more so, is I didn't get that Eastwood was talking about the management. To me, it was the "people of Detroit".... the workers.
Maybe I'm just naive.

The ****Wing is going berserk over the ad. Fun to read the initial diaries and such, though much of it was quickly removed.

BTW the "pulled" ad issue is a confusion about a totally different ad, resulting in Eastwood's ad being deleted accidentally. Nobody (other than the ****Wing) has problems with the Eastwood ad.

First of all it was a good game and that is what counts.


+1

Nail-biter til the final play with plenty of surprises like the safety on Brady early in the first quarter to the guy squatting his way into the end zone, it was one heck of a game.

NO! It was one of the better ones.

Funny, last night I FF through most of the play to take another look. Quite a few ads I don't even recall seeing on Sunday!

My favorite was the "Man's Best Friend" Doritos commercial. I can see some people saying "OMG" to the concept, but I thought it was hilarious.

If you want to know what those that tweet and Facebook thought....<< Snipped bits out >>

It's odd that nobody here mentioned the H&M commercial.:sure:



Heh.... If it was the "most popular" on social media, doesn't that mean that straight women make up the majority of those so posting?? I can't imagine straight guys "liking" that ad.

The according to AdAge the Nielsen folks have weighed in on the commercials as follows:

The biggest disconnect here is that controversial Clint Eastwood commercial. Apparently a lot of folks didn't pick up it was for Chrysler but they liked it. :sure:

And the goofy stuff around that commercial just keeps rolling along. AdAge reports that along with the Karl Rove et al goofy reaction, at the other extreme protests are coming in "some are upset that the protest signs used in the spot were scrubbed clean of the pro-union messages."

And then according to Bloomberg former U.S. President George W. Bush finds himself at a car dealers convention having to defend loans to GM and Chrysler his administration provided at the end of his term.

Ain't politics in America grand? A truly inspiring commercial leads to two Presidents defending their actions.:nono2:

Hyundai ran a different set of commercials during the SuperBowl broadcast in Canada. Some of these are pretty funny. I especially like the one with the guy on the cell phone.

Excellent! They ran two ads I saw, one funny and the other the stupid one with the singing and the humming and so on and so forth.
