(SUMNER COUNTY, Kan.)
Among all the trendy, wacky commercials during the Super Bowl was Dodge's "God Made a Farmer" spot. It's been hailed by experts as the best of the bunch.
The commerical, featuring an old audio recording of the late Paul Harvey, puts American farmers in the spotlight. It portrays them as hard-working, family-oriented people of faith.
Wellington FFA advisor Linda Chase was so excited about the commerical she showed it in class today. Her students say watching this two-minute commercial during the Super Bowl was a big encouragement.
"They've never done anything like that," freshman Cameron Bartelson says. "You don't expect it with the Super Bowl."
Junior Abbie McComb says, "It really shows what farmers do. A bunch of people refer to farmers as hicks and rednecks, but really, people wouldn't be able to live without farmers."
The students were all the more excited when they heard that Dodge will donate money to the national FFA everytime somebody watches the commercial online. Click here to watch it.
