Eminem, without ever having to take the field, was one of the Super Bowl XLV's biggest stars.
The superstar rapper, one of the best selling musicians of 2010, popped up in not one, but two commercials during Sunday's match-up between the Steelers and the Packers — one a stop-motion animated pitch for Brisk, the other an ode to Chrysler and his hometown of Detroit, Michigan.
Still the placement of the advertisement could have been improved. In the Brisk spot, Slim Shady, who appeared in 2003's "8 Mile" and looks set to make his return to the big screen in Fox's "Random Acts of Violence," emphasizes that he shies away from endorsements, feigning anger about the company's refusal to re-christen the iced tea after him.
"See that's why I don't do commercials," the animated Eminem says.
Except you do more Super Bowl spots than Kim Kardashian. Arriving an interception or so later, Eminem's Chrysler ad featured inspirational shots of the "Motor City" and a sign-off from it's most famous resident.
"This is the Motor City and this is what we do," Eminem says in the spot.
What do you think? Do you prefer Brisk's animated Eminem to Chrysler's real deal?
