So God made a farmer.
I have been meaning to post this for awhile, since it ran during the Super Bowl, and that was more than a few days ago. Now I am that “preppy” guy. Not a farmer. But I old enough I listened to Paul Harvey. I grew up and now have moved back to a rural area. I could throw a baseball from where I am typing this and hit an 500 acre corn field. My high school had Future Farmers of American and 4H. Heck once a year I head to my parents house across the state and go to “Corn Day.” What is “Corn Day?” Well you go out to the huge 4H center, pay $5.50 and get a chicken breast, as much tea as you can drink, and folks walk around with buckets of corn. Buckets. You eat corn till you can’t stand. As a guy that used to wear Brooks Brother suits and eat sushi, it is a better experience.
I rarely say things like the “best ever” but well …. this is maybe the best commercial I’ve seen in I don’t know how long. Maybe all time. I mean it is wonderful, flat out powerful just with the sound. Add in the Ken Burns like video and you got something pretty special.
This two minute ad is the most expensive in Super Bowl history.
Wow. Notice the not-so-subtle reference to that historic 1984 spot by Apple and of course all the “drones” are wearing the trademark white Apple earbuds.
