Eminem strikes Super Bowl commercial gold with ‘Imported from Detroit’

Detroit may be a city crippled by a severe economic downturns, government failure and crime — and thus the subject of some serious jokes about it being a murder-prone hellhole — but it’s still a city at the heart of America. Its people are hardworking joes (and janes), and its cultural contributions are vast, including Motown, the beginning of punk, and one Marshall Mathers. So it may be initially shocking to see super-rich, super-controversial rap figure Eminem driving through Detroit’s decayed and gloomy settings pimping a new luxury line for Chrysler, even if Eminem’s connections to the city are deep.
