One of the most talked about commercials during the Super Bowl, Dodge’s “God Made a Farmer,” has already been spoofed!
The original commercial depicts the picturesque American farmer set to the words of Paul Harvey. According to KCET TV , Harvey’s speech originally occurred in 1978 at the Future Farmers of America Convention and conveys the difficult and heroic work that Farmers must endure around the country. Dodge claims that they will donate to the Future Farmers of America this year.
Although the commercial reportedly made people cry, Funny or Die has decide to make a parody, which presents a more accurate version of American farming today according to The Huffington Post
The commercial starts with the same line of the poem, “and on the 8th day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, ‘I need a caretaker.’ So God made a farmer” and ends with the headline, “here’s to shameless heartland pandering.”
Watch the new video below. What do you think? Does the parody hold more truth than the original?
