Ford Motor Co. has pulled a controversial video advertisement featuring a "Chris," a buyer who claims one of the reasons he bought his car from Ford was because he wanted to buy from a company that "was standing on its own" and didn't take government bailouts. "Win, lose, or draw," Chris says, "that's what America is taking the chance to succeed and understanding when you fail that you gotta pick youself up and and go back to work." The story and video can be found here.
