The Dodge Ram Super Bowl commercial, So God Made a Farmer has been all the buzz on Ag blogs everywhere. I remember seeing the black baldie in the opening scene of the commercial and thinking, “Oh no HSUS or PETA have a commercial tonight!” Then two words entered the screen, Paul Harvey. Next I thought, “OH MY GOODNESS someone is using So God Made a Farmer.” The pictures that followed brought me to tears as I listened to the words of Paul Harvey’s poem.
After the commercial was over I quickly tweeted, “Best commercial ever! #godmadeafarmer #dodge #ThankAFarmer”
All the Ag tweeps (twitter people) I follow had the same reaction as I. Here are some of my favorite tweets from Sunday night.
After reading Heather and Sheridan’s tweets I got pretty emotional and wished my Dad could have seen the commercial.
Clark’s tweet was my all time favorite of the night.
I absolutely loved that this commercial was played during the Super Bowl, one of the most watched televison events. Farmers were represented in a positive way and those who were tuned in Sunday night got the chance to see it.
Listed below are some blog posts about the commercial. I love how passionate these bloggers are in telling the story of agriculture.
To sum it up, So God Made a Farmer for you and for me and I tip my hat to Dodge for shinning a light on them. But the real people I want to thank are farmers. Thank you for being God’s chosen caretakers.
