    :lol:

    Oh too freaking funny. How inspiring!!

    But contrary to what the might ad suggest, the spot was actually filmed in New Orleans and Los Angeles. “Yes, part of it was filmed in New Orleans . . . and some was filmed in various parts—such as Los Angeles,” Dianna Gutierrez said. She specifically points to the tunnel scenes as being taken at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, while the stadium shots were in New Orleans.

    Asked whether any part of the ad was filmed in Detroit, Gutierrez said that previously taken footage from various parts of the Motor City was used.

    :lol:

    No image of Detroit was shot for the specific use in this ad.

    The ad is fraudulent. And Chrysler and GM has seriously outsourced jobs to China. Maybe they should have had background from Shanghai.

    I think they're (GM)are up to 8 plants in China now.

    No wonder Hollywood backs the Dems.


    They are living in a fantasy.

    Thanks Rick Snyder for doing away with the Movie tax. It was brining in millions of dollars and tons of jobs and you didn't want to pick winners and losers. So you drove out an industry. Thanks. Who needs that Liberal Hollywood Money anyways.

    Um, it's television?
    Er, you do know that Star Wars was not really shot in space?
    You know when Jack Nicholson goes "here's Johnny" in the Shining, he is acting right? He really didn't kill anybody
    ET was a prosthetic as was Bruce the shark in Jaws...

    Do I need to go on?
