Dodge Ram’s Super Bowl
Spot Features Paul Harvey’s
Tribute to Farmers

ABC News, by Suzan Clarke

Posted By:beancounter, 2/4/2013 3:46:13 PM

It wasn’t flashy or filled with special effects, but Dodge Ram’s Super Bowl commercial that featured the late radio broadcaster Paul Harvey’s tribute to U.S. farmers might have won the hearts and minds of viewers Sunday night. 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. Ram commissioned 10 noted photographers, including National Geographic icon

I am an old fan of Paul Harvey. Best ad all night. Brought years to my eyes. I am not a regular churchgoer but I was appalled by the vodoo, anti-God insulting other ads. The Tide ad mocking Catholics who believe in stains and stigmata I found especially galling.

The ad was the best of the night, easily. Slate has a blog post or something up saying they cobbed it from a commercial on YouTube from farms.com. But either way - fantastic commercial. Using the actual Harvey audio was simply spectacular. The AB Clydesdale ad was a close second. :sniff:

I miss Paul Harvey. Those farmers work to pass on their farms to their children, but thanks to Obama, the death tax will force the kids to sell the farms to pay the death tax.
There is another utube video of Paul Harvey entitled If I were the Devil. I highly recommend that everyone listen to it and weep for their Country.
Paul Harvey saw this coming.

Loved this ad. I´ve watched it a couple of times. My husband didn´t know who Paul Harvey was, poor man. I kept saying "Page 2!" and he kept saying "I really don´t think I ever heard him".

That said, I will never buy a vehicle from the government regardless of how much I love their advertising.

The original ad is on You Tube. I forwarded it to my thirty something daughter who didn´t recognize the voice.

We owned a Dodge Ram Charger in the late 80s.

Like it or not, the media is a powerful influence upon individuals and society as a whole, no doubt about it. The media can present factual information which encourages the best in human nature or the worst. Today´s media/TV/hollyweird´s focus has been weighted down with the worst for several decades now, but now Americans clearly are starving to see a return to the very best, as this commercial proved. This video´s focus on the American farmer touched hearts and we want to see more productions like this for obvious reasons.

...Is anyone in the dems´ media listening & getting a clue from the public´s response to this?!

Paul Harvey was a true journalist who looked out for the people by simply telling the truth and letting us decide.

It ain´t that hard, mainstream media.

And God made ethanol subsidies - - and price supports for grains - - and acreage plowbacks - - and the farmers that God made took the subsidies and handouts that God made - - and God and the farmers were very happy.

But sooner or later - - God and the farmers will run out of other people´s money - - and we´ll all be in socialist utopia.

Amen.

The reverb in the audio and the amazing stills they used was very powerful. Bravo to the creatives who did that. We need them to work on conservative campaign ads in the future. Something like: God wanted someone to be an adult and get our country back on track, so he made a conservative...

I liked the commercial, but I thought it was a stretch to equate the "glory and honor" of farming with the "glory and honor" of that particular pickup brand.

Is it a successful ad campaign, if people love your ad but are no more likely to purchase your product afterwards? That´s me.

People who live in the cities have no idea where their food comes from. It just shows up in their stores and who thinks about that? I live in the country and we grow our own food. That is the difference between those who count on the stores too meet their needs and ours. When the stores no longer have food, I will have mine.

I listened to Paul Harvey constantly from the time I was little kid in the eighties. I loved Paul Harvey, and was deeply saddened to see him pass. Associating his voice with Chrysler and the UAW bailout made me want to retch.

BTW, #8 is right - "If I Were The Devil" will give you chills. It´s downright spooky.

Woman helps police catch AMBER
Alert suspect in Antioch
KGO-TV [San Francisco], by Cornell Barnard    Original Article

ANTIOCH, Calif. -- A quick-thinking Good Samaritan is being credited with helping police spot an AMBER Alert suspect´s car. A 7-year-old Antioch girl was found inside the car that was parked at the Antioch Marina late Friday night. Police say a possible sexual assault of the child is now part of their investigation. Because of that, AB7 News has opted not to release the name or show the victim of this crime. Leshay Burks started honking her car horn to alert police the moment she realized she may be parked next to the suspect´s car at the marina.

Washington - Rebecca M. Blank was a top candidate in 2011 to lead President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers, but then the White House turned up something politically dangerous. “A commitment to economic justice necessarily implies a commitment to the redistribution of economic resources, so that the poor and the dispossessed are more fully included in the economic system,” Ms. Blank, a noted poverty researcher, wrote in 1992. With advisers wary of airing those views in a nomination fight, Mr. Obama passed over Ms. Blank, then a top Commerce Department official and now the chancellor of

Just a "tiny fraction" of Americans stand to lose their current health insurance plan and pay more for coverage under Obamacare, a new study said Thursday as concern over canceled policies remained a pressing issue for the White House. The analysis found that only 0.6 percent of people under age 65 are at risk of losing their individual plan and having to pay higher premiums for coverage approved by the Affordable Care Act, according to Families USA, the consumer health advocacy group that issued the study.

Manila — A major 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck near one of the Philippines key tourist hubs on Tuesday, the United States Geological Survey reported. The quake struck at 08:12 local time (0012 GMT) some five kilometres (three miles) east of Balilihan, in the Bohol region of the archipelago, at a depth of 56 kilometres, the agency said. The town lies across the Cebu Strait from the popular tourist destination of Cebu City, the country´s fifth most populous city, about 60 kilometres (37 miles) away.

Shelly Ross of San Francisco was looking forward to the opening of the new health insurance marketplaces under the Affordable Care Act because she was hoping to get a better deal. But now that she´s seen her options, Ross is disappointed. Turns out she earns slightly too much money to qualify for federal financial aid to help her buy coverage in the state´s exchange, called Covered California. And because policies have to be upgraded to comply with the new law, her rates are going up nearly 10 percent. "Every plan is going to cost more than what I pay now.

Tuesday is inspection day for building owner John Vicars. He´s got a commercial property on College Avenue, right in the heart of Oakland´s busiest shopping district. His quest is simple: to see an ice cream parlor opened on the ground floor of the building. But his journey has been a regulatory nightmare. It´s taken him nine months to prepare 1,700 square feet of retail space to the city´s satisfaction - at least to where they were satisfied enough to actually come out to inspect it. It all started in December, when Vicars forked over $3,500 for the right to apply

Britain is privatizing its Royal Mail postal service through a public stock offering within the next nine months. The step was expected as the British government has been giving the Royal Mail a big overhaul in preparation for going public, including paying its whopping $6.9 billion pension fund deficit and bolstering its profit. So far, so good. Revenue from parcel deliveries was up 13 percent in the last fiscal year, thanks to the growing popularity of online shopping. Overall profit climbed to $600.5 million, from $226.5 million in the previous year. All that success has led Moya Greene, Royal Mail´s

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
