Imported from Detroit Commercial

I did not watch the Superbowl. I do not understand football, nor am I interested in the half-time show or ads. Yet when I saw the Chrysler Eminem commercial trending on Twitter and Facebook I went to YouTube and watched it.

If you have not seen the ad, it is brillant. It is Detroit, and indeed Michigan, defying the negative image that has clouded the city and state. As Sarah Cwiek of Michigan Radio reported in "Imported from Michigan? You Bet." for some the commercial was like an epic last stand.

Love it or hate it, the commercial left many with tears in their eyes. Michigan is going to fight, whatever the odds.

  1. That did actually make me want to cry. Now I feel homesick.
