Watched the Super Bowl across the street at my neighbor’s house — a farm-raised country boy who still loves to hunt, fish, and and drink good whiskey.
Didn’t care much about watching the game, but I knew my good buddy was smoking a brisket on his pit out back, and he promised he’d throw on some of the Black Buck sausage he just got back from the processor. Not one to pass up good smoked meat, good company, and a few pints of cold beer, so I watched the game with the rest of the guys out in the garage, while the woman and children mostly stayed inside and watched the game…or something else; I’m not sure.
Anyway, the only time it got completely quiet in the garage was when this Dodge commercial came on:
That commercial was made from a speech that the late, great Paul Harvey gave back in 1978.
As soon as it ended the first two comments, one from an older gentleman in our group, who simply said, “God bless Paul Harvey,” and the second from my neighbor who had driven Ford trucks since he started driving on his Grandfather’s farm, “Good commercial. I still ain’t buying a Dodge.”
I’m guessing this commercial might not have been quite as big of a hit on the East Coast, where most of the viewership was probably offended at the repeated use of “God,” where the concept of hard work is as foreign a concept as being responsible for their own health, welfare, and safety, and their overall disdain for the types of people in “fly over country” depicted in this ad.

Lots of unhinged angry Leftists on Twitter. Like these two seriously unhappy douchettes:
shut the fuck up Dodge, farmers evolved from apes just like the rest of us. #GetItRight

Throwing “god ” into a Dodge commercial is idiotic. There is no god, and soon… no Dodge. Fuck Dodge! #atheism

Anyway…this was hand’s down the big winner at our party. But this Budweiser commercial was also a big hit. Even with the Miller Lite guys:
Turns out, a lot of these guys who grew up on farms also grew up loving their farm animals, too.
