Quite the World, Isn't It?

About that Super Bowl farmer/Paul Harvey/truck commercial

When the ad popped up during the Super Bowl last week, it struck me as slick manipulative marketing, down to the models-cum-farmers. I mentioned at the time that it must have taken some effort to have done the whole bit on American farming without mentioning the people who do the actual farming, migrant laborers from Mexico.

But this bit gathers up the whole mess of oversights and willful disregard of reality in one piece of razor-sharp satire. Enjoy.
