Jeep returned to this year’s Super Bowl with yet another commercial all about America’s greatness and endless potential. The one and only Bruce Springsteen starred in “The Middle,” a two-minute film he helped to write and produce, including the original score. He was shown driving in Lebanon, Kansas, literally Middle America, in a 1980 Jeep CJ-5, a Jeep Wrangler predecessor. But now the automaker has pulled the commercial following the confirmed arrest of Springsteen for a DUI last fall.
“The Boss” was arrested on November 14 at Gateway National Recreation Area on the New Jersey Coast. He was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, reckless driving, and consuming alcohol in a closed area. Springsteen is said to have been cooperative with police during the arrest.
