tukaniSVT the VW commercial was funny.

My vote goes to the Taco Bell and M&M commercial.

Stinking Fun song (Spanish) and Meatloaf song are stuck in my head now ... lol

MisterH I actually liked the VW commercial.

TheGlassMaker Neither of my favorite were car commercials. Although I'm a 9ers fan I found the Joe Montana stain one hilarious.


But if I have to pick, regardless of the brand. The Jeep and Ram was my favorite.

I don't know any ND farmers, so i will have to take your word on that. But it is different for the farmers I know.

I agree that the military, police force, fire rescue, etc. deserve recognition. And I also loved the jeep commercial. But it is not only the people who literally put their lives on the line that sacrifice for this country.

What about the teacher who works 70-80 hours a week teaching, training, and molding the future of our nation. They don't put their lives on the line, do they deserve recognition? If you break their salaries down to an hourly figure, they make slightly more than minimum wage, and pay for a good deal of the books and materials used in their classroom out of their own pocket.

From my experience, I would include the farmers I know in a similar category. Working 80 hours a week, year round, and praying just to brake even when it is all said and done. Having to compete with multibillion dollar corporations who drive the price of crops down to make a few more cents on their cereals and other products. Hoping at the end of the harvest to make enough to stave off foreclosure for another year....

I think those types of people deserve a little recognition. And I applaud Dodge for giving it to them.

That is why I liked the ad. It praised a portion of our society that rarely every gets praise. Would I love to see a similar ad about the military? As a veteran, of course I would. But the military is not the only group of people in this country who do not get nearly enough credit for what they sacrifice for the rest of us.

In terms of your family I say "Right on!" when it comes to working your butts off to make a living.

Just to put into perspective where I'm coming from.
My friends family owns a pretty average farm here in ND. They run it 4 months out of the year, make over 300k a year in profit, and their machines are run by GPS so my buddy literally sits in the plow watching netflix while this thing plows the whole field.

Thank you for your service.

suss6052 The kia commercial was majorly idiotic. They murdered a nerdy journalist for smudging the windows and mildly kicking the tire. What technology where they even showing off? That their car looks like a cheapened 2012 Ford Focus sedan clone instead of the 2006 Era civic the current one is based off of.
