As you may remember, I’m a Jersey Girl. Born and raised in New Jersey. Bruce (Bruce Springsteen) is pretty famous here. He lived in my town for awhile. I’ve met him a few times. We’ve actually got a few friends in common. Whenever we’ve met he’s been nice and not pretentious at all. A normal man who doesn’t act like he’s a celebrity or deserves special treatment. Just a kind person…and that counts for a lot in my book.
It’s been a few years since I’ve watched the Superbowl, but I’ve always loved the commercials. This one was no exception and in tribute to my Jersey roots (and to Bruce’s), I wanted to share it with you. Because there’s a feeling of hope, calm, caring and even love in this commercial. What do you think of it?
“There’s a chapel in Kansas standing on the exact center of the lower 48. It never closes. All are more than welcome to come meet here in the middle,” Bruce says. “It’s no secret, the middle has been a hard place to get to lately, between red and blue, between servant and citizen, between our freedom and our fear.”
“Now fear has never been the best of who we are. And as for freedom, it’s not the property of just the fortunate few. It belongs to us all, whoever you are, wherever you’re from. It’s what connects us, and we need that connection,” he continues. “We need the middle. We just have to remember the very soil we stand on is common ground. So we can get there. We can make it to the mountain top, through the desert, and we will cross this divide. Our light has always found its way through the darkness. And there’s hope on the rode up ahead.”
Our light has always found its way through the darkness.
This was my favorite ad during the Superbowl (I didn’t watch the game, but I watched all the ads later). The other wonderful one was about getting out into Nature (Bass Pro Shops/Cabela).
I haven’t seen the Bass Pro Shops one but I will check it out Elizabeth! Thanks for letting me know. I hope all is well with you!
I couldn’t open the video but if those words above are its vocals it has been spoken beautifully dear lady. May we all find that inner freedom in our hearts 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
Hi Mark! I’m sorry you couldn’t open the video. I’m not sure why, but yes, those are the words that were spoken in it. I hope you’re having a lovely day!😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
It is usually because the video’s etc don’t have permissions for other countries to view it. But it mattered not, the words were magic themselves dear lady 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
Thank you for your explanation and understanding. 🙂
