My Favourite Super Bowl ad: Chrysler - Jay Russell, chief creative officer of GSD&M

Here is the choice of Jay Russell, chief creative officer of GSD&M.

The Chrysler 'Halftime In America' spot just knocked me on my ass. They said out loud what the whole country was thinking culturally…."We’re scared and uncertain."
