|Who wins the Superbowl advertising medal in 2013?|
For yesterday's Superbowl between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens, Jeep produced this ad paying tribute to our American military families. Oprah Winfrey supplied the narration.
Jeep has proud military heritage having produced over 600,000 vehicles during World War II. See my earlier post Corporations that Won World War II, see post 7/20/12.
Pistachios, on the other hand, ran with this ad from PSY in the Superbowl...
What's the big deal? PSY is incredibly popular. He is cuddly Mr. K-Pop. He is also the artist who said in his 2004 son Dear American...
"Kill those f...ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives
Kill those f...ing Yankees who ordered them to torture
Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law, and fathers
Kill them all slowly and painfully"
In 2002 Psy smashed an American tank on stage.
Of course, he later apologized. So that earned him a White House ticket this December and makes everything OK...? Why did it take eight years and a White House invitation for Psy to realise that he had something to apologise about...?
Psy grew up in South Korea. 36,940 Americans and 1,078 Brits were killed during the Korean war that was launched by the Stalinist North Korea and fought from 1950 - 1953. My own father served in the US Army during the Korean war. In the more than sixty years since that time, millions of American families have had their lives disrupted by tours of duty spent keeping the peace in South Korea. The military support of the US government has helped South Korea to become a free and prosperous nation. World class companies such as Hyundai and Samsung are headquartered in the Republic of Korea; these companies also advertised in the Superbowl this past Sunday. These companies cater to the demands of the American consumer while Psy spouts the Anti-American rhetoric of the extreme Left.
It is interesting to note that Iran is the largest Pistachio producer in the world today.
As Gerneral McAuliffe of Bastogne might have said, "Nuts to you, Psy and Pistachios!"
The First amendment assures that the Pistachio farmers, of course, have every right to employ Psy as their spokesman. You, dear reader, have a choice. You can join me in supporting the USO... http://www.uso.org/
