Video: Dodge catches World Cup fever with historic new ad

Dodge "Freedom" ad – Click above to watch video after the jump

Dodge has just dropped a special commercial for today's World Cup match between the good old US of A and our former masters, England. The odds don't look particularly good for the American team, but we've been known to pull out a surprise win or two when it comes to standing against the old empire – the "Miracle on the Grass" 1950 World Cup match between the two countries comes to mind, as does that little Revolutionary War thing. How we do today remains to be seen. The teams go head to head at 2:30PM Eastern.

If you're looking to get yourself stoked for the match, feel free to hop the jump to see the Dodge spot for yourself and check out the full press blast. The ad is called "Freedom," and it may just have you wanting one particular Mopar product by the time the screen goes black. Enjoy.

Ironically, the Challenger is built in Ontario which happens to be Redcoat country. :P

Owned by Italians. Built by Monarchists!

Why can't GM do anything? .......... Maybe because people are wasting time contemplating the word CHEVY.

Ontario? Redcoat country? What are you talking about?

Oh yeah, that... Heh, heh...

I don't think It's just you... I've got a great big Canadian Red Ensign pinned to the wall above my desk.

It's one of those few ads that have substance behind it, and use an actually deeper meaning to be memorable, not cheap gags like most ads do these days (even the Challenger one to an extent).
