Jeep pulls Super Bowl ad featuring Bruce Springsteen amid reports of DWI arrest

American automobile manufacturer Jeep debuted a new advertisement on Super Bowl Sunday that featured left-wing rock legend Bruce Springsteen. But after the Trump-hating singer found himself the center of controversy this week, the Chrysler-owned brand is covering up all traces of their ties to him.

Fox News reported Wednesday that the ad was pulled from social media and taken off YouTube after news broke that Springsteen had been taken into custody last November on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol. 

The musician’s arrest took place in New Jersey’s Gateway National Recreation Area, according to a statement quoted in a separate report from Fox, and it reportedly resulted in citations for “DWI, reckless driving, and consuming alcohol in a closed area.”

“A hard place to get to”

According to Fox, Jeep declined the network’s request for comment. Through a spokesperson, the company told Pitchfork that “[i]t would be inappropriate for us to comment on the details of a matter we have only read about and we cannot substantiate.”

“But it’s also right that we pause our Big Game commercial until the actual facts can be established,” the spokesperson added. “Its message of community and unity is as relevant as ever. As is the message that drinking and driving can never be condoned.”

The ad in question featured images of Springsteen driving a Jeep to the geographical center of the lower 48 states, which is located in Lebanon, Kansas.

“The middle has been a hard place to get to lately, between red and blue, between servant and citizen, between our freedom and our fear,” Springsteen says in a voiceover, according to Fox.

“As for freedom, it’s not the property of just the fortunate few, it belongs to us all, whoever you are, wherever you’re from,” he adds.

Finding common ground?

Toward the end of the ad, Springsteen can be seen walking into a chapel as he says, “We just have to remember that the very soil we stand on is common ground, so we can get there.”

Some observers have taken issue with the idea of featuring Springsteen in a commercial centering around national unity, however, given his status as a partisan figure with proud ties to Democrats.

One such critic is conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, who remarked sarcastically on an episode of his podcast: “When I think of moderate, middle-of-the-road people, I think of Bruce Springsteen, a life-long Democratic voter who performs at the DNC [Democratic National Convention].”

Who wouldn’t?

  1. The dem managers are cheating again. Trump had nothing to do with planning what they call an insurrection. The only instructions he gave the people were to love our country. The prime movers were Antifa and BLM and they had no love for Trump. The real question is, why didn’t the democrats show any interest in looking into the obvious problems with the electronic voting machines in a few states? If the positions were reversed, we know the democrats would demand an explanation for the failed Dominion machines. Like Trump’s lawyer explained, the left is being hypocritical, again.

    1. They don’t even want us to Love our country!
      Love it or leave it!
      I understand even France doesn’t want their ideas😀

    2. The Democrats of course would not want to look into the obvious problems with the electronic voting machines in the swing states. They knew why they won, they cheated. The question is why the Republicans were not interested into looking at the widespread fraud that went on in this election? They are weak, they let Democrats get away with every corrupt thing they do. Barr was a traitor I even saw it, he did not prosecute anyone of the Democrats who broke the law. He claimed there was no election fraud. A true traitor. Why do you think he left, he wanted to leave before anyone found out he was working for the Democrats.

  2. I don’t understand how the so-called “Boss” makes one hit and he is an important figure for Liberals?? If Jeep puts that stupidtard on a commercial they will loose many potential conservative buyers …. hunters, fishermen, campers, ATV owners. Then they can rely on beach blanket feces dwellers to buy them.

  4. Bruce Springsteen is a POS and always will be. I would like to ask him if his parents had any children that lived.

  5. It is so unbelievable how Democrats try to blame Trump for all their problems. So the Boss is an alcoholic, what does that have to do with Trump? Absolutely nothing. Just like all the law suits they bring up against Trump. He is innocent. Two fake impeachments and still the true people breaking all the laws are the Democrats. Somehow someone has got to get the guts to stop them, since some of the Republicans turned against Trump the only man that has the guts.

  6. WE THE PEOPLE ARE JUST ABOUT TO OUER WITS END WITH ALL THIS BULL FROM THE LEFT _WARNING WATCH OVER YOUR SHOLDER YOULL NEVER KNOW JUST WHO IS TAKEING NOTES AND PICTURES ,YOU COULD BE NEXT!!!

  7. Who is Springsteen?
    A medal of Honor winner= Not
    Police Officer= NOT
    First Responder= NOT
    Served his country= NOT
    Therefore: he is just another low life taking up space in GOD’s Country.

  8. It should be required, that all immigrants like and support the U.S.A., if they don’t, they can’t come in. Burning the flag, disrespecting the U.S.A. should result in immediate deportation.
