With a voice-over from radio broadcaster
Paul Harvey’s 1978 speech at the Future Farmer’s of America convention, Ram trucks delivered a spiritually-themed Super Bowl ad Sunday night titled ‘Farmer:’
The commercial closes with a nod “to the farmer in all of us.”
Michael Wayland of Mlive.com reports that for the commercial, “Ram commissioned ten noted photographers including National Geographic icon William Albert Allard and renowned documentary photographer Kurt Markus to document American farm life, yielding a beautiful and comprehensive catalog of farming images.”
God also made an appearance –a la the “Virgin Mary grilled cheese” –in an ad for Tide in ‘Miracle Stain.’ A man accidentally drops salsa on his game day 49ers jersey, only to find that the splattered image is that of the great one: Joe Montana. At the end of the clip, an act of God –in the guise of an industrious Ravens fan–removes the stain from the jersey. “No stain is sacred,” quips Tide in the final scene.
