BEST: Clint Eastwood and Chrysler, “It’s Halftime In America”

Typically, celebrities use Super Bowl commercials to shamelessly cash in with random cameos and/or unfunny routines, but Clint Eastwood would never go out like that. Easily the night’s most unexpected A-lister in any commercial, the grizzled Hollywood icon used his seasoned presence and gruff voice to inspire Americans of all backgrounds, whether they bleed G-Men blue or root for the Pats. Strategically aired right before Madonna’s big halftime concert, Eastwood’s Chrysler spot, set against a Detroit backdrop, gave struggling and uncertain Americans a rallying cry fit for a Tom Coughlin locker room pep talk.
