We had one of the most laid back Super Bowl parties ever at our house last evening. The teenagers went to another party, leaving John and me, our two youngest daughters, our married kids and their babies. We knew the halftime show would be too risque for us, and spent that playing games and watching something on PBS about horses. That’s not to say we didn’t enjoy the game. We all watched the big moments of the game, cheered here and there, listened to the people-stories. It was all good fun.
Except for the commercials.
Seriously, some of those commercials were the most raunchy, risque things ever-ever-ever. We turned eyes away and switched channels multiple time. I don’t get why there is such nastiness shown at a time when families are known to be watching together. (Well, I actually don’t get why it’s done anytime, but that’s another story.)
There was one bright shining moment. Maybe you saw it. Maybe you heard about it, because I’m far from the only one to have enjoyed it. But I’m sharing the video here as a thank you to Dodge (and Paul Harvey) for recognizing what GoDaddy didn’t—there are legions of us in America who still stand for decency and hard work and honor. And we want our children to see more of it in this world.
