Super Bowl Commercials 2011: Eminem, Chrysler, Detroit, And The Ad Of The Year

More: Super Bowl Commercials 2012.

Eminem has now appeared in his second Super Bowl commercial of 2011. He starred in an ad which pitched both Chrysler and the city of Detroit, and the result, in my opinion, was the best commercial of Super Bowl XLV to date. Here's video. Judge for yourself:

Here's the transcript of the narration:

What does this city know about luxury? More than most. The hottest fires make the hardest steel. It's not the story you're reading in the papers. It's about luxury. We're from America. This is what we do. The Chrysler 200 has arrived. Imported from Detroit.

Eminem is emblematic of the city of Detroit. I'm not a profound Slim Shady apologist, and I'm outright annoyed by him sometimes, but this commercial? Absolutely killed it.
