VIDEO: Chrysler Shows Why ‘It’s Halftime in America’ During Super Bowl 2012

In an interesting departure from talking babies, vaporizing vampires and alter-ego dancing heads, hats off to Chrysler for getting serious, looking at the big picture and sending out a message of hope, goodwill, patriotism and unity during Super Bowl 2012. Touchingly and toughly narrated by a revered American icon, the “It’s Halftime in America” ad managed to not only give weight to our shared history, challenges and concerns but also pointed to a better and brighter future. Though the ad could have so easily slipped into the abyss of sentimentalism and schmaltz, it managed to steer clear and deliver a strong and uplifting message. In my humble opinion, this was an absolutely brilliant strategy on the part of the automaker and one which I believe will ultimately pay big dividends.

VIDEO: Hyundai Serves Up Smorgasbord of 2012 Super Bowl Ads

Hyundai has been on a tear this last couple years and is continuing on its quest to push around the big boys. This year the Korean juggernaut plans to debut no less than 5 game-day advertisements for the 2012 Super Bowl including the ones featured here. Many of the clips center around American themes, including the Fourth of July, and are a direct shot across the bow to domestic car companies. One of our favorites shows a collective "Rocky" consciousness infecting a Hyundai factory which bursts into a full blown performance of  "Gonna Fly Now." And the new 2012 Hyundai Veloster Turbo and the Genesis Coupe R Spec get their time in the spotlight as well. Check out the fun fest after the jump…
