As the NFL Playoffs come to a close next week and we get one week closer to the 50th Super Bowl, it’s fun to look back on some of the best commercials to ever play during “the big game.”

In 2013, Ram Trucks delivered its “God Made a Farmer” commercial with beautiful imagery taking our breath away while Paul Harvey’s 1978 speech raged on in the background. Harvey originally gave the speech a Future Farmers of America convention– likely the only speech made at such convention turned into a huge ad campaign.

The ad was praised for its imagery and reflection.

Following the success of the commercial, country music singer James Wesley released the single, “Thank A Farmer.” Wesley told Billboard, “During the commercials on the Super Bowl, we were playing Battleship on the floor. All of a sudden, I hear this voice. I’m thinking that I hadn’t heard that voice in a long time, but I knew exactly who it was. It was Paul Harvey talking, and showing all these farmers and how had they work. I thought about how people don’t realize how much hard work it takes to be a farmer. I thought if we only had a song to follow this commercial up with, how awesome it would be.”
