    Clip of Alissa Czisny in a Super Bowl ad

    I missed it during the actual broadcast but a clip of Alissa is in a Chrysler commercial that was played during the Super Bowl. You can watch it at http://ow.ly/3RobG. What a great thing for her! Glad to see her get at least a little love even if they didn't say her name or anything like that.

    Alissa and Eminem in the same ad....now I've seen it all.
    But really, that was a brilliant ad....just a shame that only FS fans(mostly) know who Alissa is, why she is in that ad, and why it's so cool.
    Good for her.

    I thought it was random that they included a clip of Alissa. Most people wouldn't get it because she's not a household name.

    Loved that Alissa was in it - recognized her right away.

    I wasn't really paying attention to the game but happened to be tuning in when that ad came on, and I just stood there, frozen, watching. It resonates to the core for anyone who's from Michigan or who's lived there.

    What an amazing ad. Really rebrands Detroit in 30 seconds.

    And Alissa's beautiful, of course. So glad she's in it!

    Loved that Alyssa is in a national commercial, but I am a bit confused as to why they used her in this ad for Detroit. I realize she trains in a Detroit suburb, but she is not from here. Why not use Davis and White, who were born and raised in Michigan? Not at all a slight on Alyssa, but as a Michigander myself, I was just wondering.

    Does anyone recognize the outdoor rink where Alissa is spinning?

    Don't Davis and White represent a club out of Canton? That's probably why they used Alissa- she is announced at competitions as representing Detroit Figure Skating Club (despite it being located in a suburb). Her club gives name recognition to the city. The commercial was about Detroit, not about Michigan.

    Alissa has done good things for the city. The only reason I've ever been to Detroit was to take a seminar from her. Many other people there traveled soley because of her. a few years in a row. It's a very very minor impact, but my "tourist" dollars went to Detroit because of Alissa. I'm glad she got some recognition here.


    (Of course, since it looks like Meryl and Charlie were born/raised in a Detroit suburbs, that would have given a good connection to use them.)

    Cool I missed that one during the Super Bowl.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    I assume it's Campus Martius. I haven't been to the rink so I can't be absolutely sure, but it makes sense.

    Yep. DSC skaters perform at the Campus Martius rink every winter.

    Alissa is from the Detroit area, she lived in Northwest Ohio near the Michigan border before moving to the Detroit area permanently a few years ago. She's trained in Michigan for as long as I can remember, so she really is a native of the Detroit general area.

    Great ad! As an expatriate Detroiter I'm glad to see some Motown love for a change.

    I would have preferred Kid Rock over Eminem...his latest music video was filmed in the UP (yes I know it's about Detroit and NOT Michigan in general)
    "awwww....shades of Janet Lynn" - Dick Button on anyone who makes more than one mistake in their program.
