Bruce Springsteen’s Super Bowl ad scrapped from Jeep’s YouTube page

Bruce Springsteen’s Super Bowl LV Jeep commercial was yanked from YouTube on Wednesday after the rock legend’s DWI bust came to light.

The clip for “The Middle ft Bruce Springsteen” on Jeep’s YouTube page now reads: “Video unavailable. This video is private.”

The Hollywood Reporter first reported that the ad had been taken off Jeep’s page at around 1 p.m.

The commercial wasn’t on Jeep’s Twitter Wednesday, either. However, it was still available on Springsteen’s Instagram account.

The “Born to Run” icon appeared in and narrated the spot, which aired during Sunday’s game.  

It was revealed days later that Springsteen, 71, was arrested Nov. 14 at a national park in his home state of New Jersey and charged with DWI, reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area.

A spokesperson for the National Park Service said Springsteen was “cooperative throughout the process.”

According to TMZ, which first reported the arrest, the allegedly juiced Bruce has a court date in the coming weeks and has no known prior busts for DWI.

Jeep didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
