    Wasn't that right before we broke open a can at Yorktown?

    Semi-lolz but it seems like a fairly transparent ploy to play up the patriotism angle. Were I an ad exec I would prolly focus more on the performance-based virtues of the Challenger especially given its price class. Not rainin' on your parade Worfster (don't need no wrath today). It's a humorous bit but maybe not the most efficient of message senders...
    So, I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    Parody, joke, snickers.... I'd a used a Ford meself. Hell, the company's so lacking in the nutsack dept. they pulled it almost before it even aired. Lest they offend... Just a joke...

    Doubt it had anything to do with nutsack dept...The Ad folks prolly should have looked up the fact the Challenger is built in Canada before playing the American patriotism angle...

    Patriotism, like religion, is for the simple minded.

    I would argue that blind patriotism is simpleminded but one can love one's country while still questioning/protesting the actions of its leaders/citizens.

    Too bad they didn't throw in a couple of stuffed uniforms to run over.

    I'm just messing with ya...I have quite a bit of respect for soccer players...along with rugby players and decatheletes they are some of the best conditioned sportsmen in the world.

    That said I'd rather look at paint drying or torture a clown at the Chicago Museum of Art than actually watch a soccer match.

    One should love one's country so that justice be done internally and externally; one shouldn't have to love if "right or wrong".

    Considering it was the American car industry that had a meltdown, this commercial is somewhat ironic. We have failed in the car industry, and our freedoms are slowly being eroded away. I guess this commercial was done before 9/11... .....

    You can get you finger off that sarcasm button now......besides, you should see how far out those zeros converge from the screen. You talk about in your face!

    True, there isn't usually a huge amount of scoring going on... But there are exceptions, like Portugal scoring 7-0 against North Korea yesterday.
    I really only get excited about the World Cup...
