Friday Night Lights writer-director Peter Berg is not impressed that Mitt Romney has co-opted the series' infamous "Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose" phrase on his Facebook page and in his campaign speeches:

Here's his biting letter to the Romney campaign:

Your politics and campaign are clearly not aligned with the themes we portrayed in our series. The only relevant comparison that I see between your campaign and Friday Night Lights is in the character of Buddy Garrity — who turned his back on American car manufacturers selling imported cars from Japan.

Fun twist: Buzz Bissinger, who wrote the book on which Berg's movie and TV series are based, is a Romney supporter.
