"This is the Motor City, and this is what we do," states the singer, Eminem, in the Chrysler Corp. commercial aired for the first time during Super Bowl XLV. In this commercial, a narrator defines luxury while the audience views a montage of iconic images of Detroit, Michigan, the "Motor City."
Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, where my father worked as a paint chemist for Chrysler, I must say that I was pretty proud of those images. Positive images juxtaposed with affirmative statements illustrate a contrary point of view to that which the current world media has presented of the Motor City. This use of iconic realism brings into focus the cultural reality of the U.S. automotive industry and the possibilities associated with innovation and perseverance in any community.
And what vehicle to I drive? Why, a Jeep Liberty, of course!
