With most of the best 2011 Super Bowl commercials in the books, one thing is certain: This is the most USA! USA! set of Super Bowl Ads ever. Especially if you like cars and super heroes, who are always prime commercial constituents. Here's Chrysler's 200, with an assist from Eminem, on the virtues of being Imported from Detroit. Lose yourself in the following:â†µâ†µ
USA! USA! USA! But it doesn't stop there. Continue chanting and move on to this ad from Chevrolet, which extolls the American discoveries that lead up to the Chevy Volt, which is imported from Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center. Also the past.â†µâ†µ
Benjamin Franklin and Jimi Hendrix will be receiving co-engineering credit on the Volt, particularly its "carousing" and "funkifying" features. As though that weren't enough, there was also a trailer for none other than—Captain America. If a Jeep isn't enough to facilitate his Nazi-killing, he should consider borrowing Eminem's Chrysler 200, which he probably isn't using in the 1940s.â†µ
This might all sound ironic, but it's the Super Bowl—until the next Olympics, when else am I going to have a chance to lead a USA chant? I'm glad Chrysler gave me the opportunity.
