So God made a farmer. Those words are echoing in millions of people's heads. They weren't there 24 hours ago, yet they are all the talk around the water cooler this morning as the Paul Harvey Super Bowl commercial for Dodge Ram trucks paid tribute to the men and women who get over looked too much in society - the farmer.
ABC News reported today Feb. 4, "The two-minute spot featured a series of stark photos of farmers at work. Along with a montage of still images, Harvey’s distinctive voice delivers the narration: his “So God Made a Farmer” speech, which he gave in 1978 at the National Future Farmers of America Convention. He died in 2009 at age 90."
It wasn't flashy, it didn't have half naked woman, or ton of special effects, but it did its job as it cut to the heart of American's.
Great job Dodge!
The other commercial that has folks still talking, and will for a while was Anheuser-Busch and the Budweiser Clydesdale horses.
It shows the bonding between a trainer and his horse, just like a parent and his child, as the horse grows up and leaves the farm.
Later they are reunited, and it was a touching moment.
So touching in fact the freep reports, via the USA Today, it was voted the best commercial of the evening.
