The Best Super Bowl Commercial

Sunday night I sat down with good friends to watch the Super Bowl. This is also what millions of people all around our country were doing last night. Now, we all know one of the best parts of the Super Bowl is the advertisements. This is the only night that we will find ourselves actually looking forward to the show we are watching being interrupted. People don’t fast forward through Super Bowl ads, they actually watch. In fact, my group of friends and I were actually fast forwarding to the commercials! That never happens. None of the commercials were really sticking out as being “great” to me until the one came on that everyone is talking about, and believe me there is always that one or two that stick out in people’s minds that they find their selves discussing with their friends the next day. This year I would definitely say that this was the Ram Trucks “Farmer” commercial featuring Paul Harvey.
This was a very moving commercial, and it really got the word across about farmers, and what they do. It showed that farming isn’t just an occupation, it’s a way of life. I logged on to Facebook today and anyone that mentioned that commercial in their post got at least 60 likes. To think about the millions of people that also saw this commercial blows my mind. Where I come from, everyone understands this commercial because they have had the experiences mentioned, but to people who haven’t really heard too much about the farm life, I think this was a great way to show them, and also a great night to pick to do that when so many people are tuning in. I have talked to two of my friends today that are from the city and they both mentioned this commercial to me and how it really tugged at their heart. If you haven’t seen it yet, definitely look it up on YouTube! It’s nice to see that our farmers are understood and not forgotten for everything that they do every day.

My name is Alex Morris, and I am from a small, rural town in Missouri called Ballard. I grew up on a row crop and cow/calf operation. I have always loved the farm life, and I have always been very active around our farm. Now, for the first time, I have been away from where I grew up and am experiencing college. It is always good to go back home to the farm, and I try to make it there as often as I can. It’s my favorite place to be. Being away has only made me appreciate agriculture more. Here, at Missouri State University, I am majoring in Agricultural Communications and I plan to have an emphasis in graphic design. My goal is to be an advocate of agriculture. The way I am going to start “spreading the word” of agriculture is through this blog. I plan to share the issues I may come across, things I find in the social media, or topics that we disucuss in my Relations in Agriculture class or any of my other classes. I will also share stories straight off of my farm. I will talk a little about what goes on around there, and post pictures whenever I can, because they are worth a thousand words that don’t have to be typed. I love to take pictures and to tell good stories. Sometimes I may even talk about life in general if I come across something that needs to be shared. Overall, I am a very stong believer in agriculture. It’s where my heart is, and I want to make people aware of what is going on out there, and bring things to their notice they may not be aware of. I believe that is my job as an agriculture advocate, and this blog is just where I am starting out.

    Here’s a poem reminiscent of the one Paul Harvey made famous and that you heard on the Super Bowl. You might enjoy reading it.
