NFL Removes Chrysler's Clint Eastwood Commercial From YouTube


So here we are bright and early Monday morning reviewing all the ads from last night's Super Bowl and, wait, what? Chrysler's Clint Eastwood ad has been removed from YouTube because of a copyright claim by the NFL? We're guessing it has something to do with the reference to the game (halftime in America) that irked the NFL.

Oddly, Chrysler doesn't seem to be hosting their own ad on their website. They just have YouTube embed code which, of course, just delivers the copyright notice. What gives, NFL? Angry the company took U.S. tax dollars? Miffed Chrysler gave your big game publicity? Hmm.

It appears the NFL hasn't asked Hulu to remove the ad which you can view below.

UPDATE: The ad is back up but no explanation has been given by Google, the NFL or Chrysler for its mysterious disappearance.
