Billboard reports that Eminem's manager Paul Rosenberg has gone on record to say that both he and the rapper are thrilled about the public's response to the two-minute Chrysler 200 ad that aired during Sunday's Super Bowl XLV telecast.
"It's just been amazing," Rosenberg told Billboard.com. "Immediately...the e-mails and texts started pouring in, Facebook started reacting, everyone all over Twitter was talking about it. We thought people were going to be pleased, but I don't know if we thought it was going to be as ecstatic of a reaction as it's been. It's really been pretty electric. I haven't seen something like this in quite some time."
While Rosenberg assessed the situation from a business perspective, he did say that the rapper, who is somewhat publicity shy, is "really thrilled. He's always sort of cautious in his own judgment about things he's involved in or creates until they're really introduced to the world and he's got a chance to see how (people) react to them. He's very pleased with the reaction."
The commercial was the most powerful and serious of the evening, featuring Eminem driving around in his home city, spotlighting the landmarks, the truths, the myths and the people that made the city what it is and was.
