Fantasy football has been played in the USA for a very long time, and is now an essential part of this society.

Taylor Whethers Jacky Brammer English-111-40 October 5, 2015 Chrysler 200 Chrysler, a well-known American automobile business, took the opportunity to capitalize off of one of the country’s biggest events, by premiering a heartwarming Chrysler 200 promotional ad during the Super Bowl. They were clever in their tactics because the commercial was able to reach a large amount of people, due to the millions of viewers that tune into the game every year.
