Dodge Challenger "Freedom" Commercial

If the New York Times reviews this, they'll no doubt accuse Washington of animal cruelty and psychological abuse.

OK. Pretty cool commercial. The new Charger is somewhat reminiscent of the earlier Mustang. However, I wish west coast movie people would really look at the difference in east coast and west coast flora and fauna. There really is a BIG difference. Where is this filmed? California? Canada? It just doesn't look like one of the 13 colonies on the east coast where the Revolutionary War was fought after all. They probably didn't learn anything about geography in school which seems to be a major issue with some public figures these days.

Also, everyone knows that George Washington would drive a Ford. He would leave the Chevrolet driving to his Francophile ginger, Jefferson

yeah I liked it well done, I gotta admit I spotted the geography problem, its definitely not an eastern panorama but so it added a minor distraction for me.

I saw this and had to snorfle. As for the differences in flora/fauna between the two coasts - EXCUSE ME! George Washington is driving a Dodge Charger! What difference does it make where this was filmed? Reminds me of the time a friend of mine complained about a technical mistake in Star Wars, you've got impossible beings doing impossible stuff at impossible speeds and he's worried about some minor consideration.

Appreciate it for what it is, a really neat (hey, I'm old enough to use it without flinching) commercial.

Yeah, Freedom to steal money from bond holders give the company to the UAW and Italians.

DougW you rat. You just had to bring that up. Now I still can't bring myself to buy a Chrysler product. I love that car. I will save some money, so thanks for that.

I live overseas, and that almost brought a tear to this Texan's eye.

There is nothing that I didn't love about that commercial. As soon as I heard the mellow fiddle, I thought, "Firefly". Then American History, then American Muscle Car. Damn that's awesome

Up until very recently Dodge was basically a German company and I'll bet the model in the commercial was designed under German leadership. I'll bet the Hessians find this commercial humorous too.

He's not driving a Charger, that's a Challenger! Nice ride, and if Dodge hadn't taken the money and if they had built the convertible model of the Challenger I'd be buying one of those instead of the Mustang that I'm getting. Too bad Dodge.

...Because dragging in ancient icons which have nothing to do with your product is such a great advertising concept...

Who bloody cares what the Times thinks of the ad!? It's a piece of crap, because Chrysler makes crap.

Coming next year, the new OCP Chrysler Jingo. I'll buy that for a dollar...
