The news follows the debut of Springsteen’s Jeep commercial on Super Bowl Sunday. The commercial was pulled from YouTube on Wednesday, according to InsideHook.


Springsteen’s commercial focused on healing and unity amid the heated political climate in the U.S.

“There is a chapel in Kansas standing on the exact center of the lower 48,” Springsteen said in the commercial. “It never closes. All are more than welcome to come meet here in the middle. It’s no secret that the middle has been a hard place to get to lately between red and blue, between servant and citizen, between our freedom and our fear.”

“We need the middle,” Springsteen continued. “We just have to remember the very soil we stand on is common ground. So we can get there. We can make it to the mountaintop. Through the desert. And we will cross this divide.”
