Americans stopped buying American cars several years ago. Mostly because they were rubbish.
That didn’t bother American car makers. They kept making the shitty cars anyway and just went cap in hand to the government for a bailout.
"We shouldn't be bailing out the banks and car companies," actor, director and Academy Award winner Eastwood told the Los Angeles Times in November 2011.
That was November 2011. Now, however, in February 2012? He’s delivered an ad for half-time at the US Superbowl over the weekend about job growth, about “the spirit of America,” and how Americans should join together again and buy American cars.
Carefully, however, they show very little of the American cars they want Americans to buy.
Because they’re still shitty.
And the only “roar” is the roar of bullshit, and the sucking sound of money disappearing down a black hole.
UPDATE 1: Speaking of shitty cars … it’s half-time in the Lincoln Tunnel.
UPDATE 2: Here’s how a halftime ad by Clint Eastwood should have sounded …
