Choosing the best auto ad from the Super Bowl was always going to be a tough one because these brands and their advertising partners seem to turn things up a gear because they know how many people will be watching – well that’s the hope. Many proud American’s will agree that the Chrysler Dodge Ram Super Bowl ad was at the top of the list because of the message that it puts across.

However, it has now come to light that the commercial was inspired by a 2011 video on the farms.com website. The same speech by Paul Harvey was used in the Dodge Ram commercial, and you don’t have to be a farmer to feel proud of the hard work that these people do, no matter what country you are from.

The commercial is pretty much the same concept as the one from 2011, although different images were used in the slideshow to give it far more presence. There was a fear that those of you who watched the commercial would say that it is plagiarism, but it’s nice to know that farms.com told Autoblog that it pays homage and that they were pleased with the outcome.

No doubt there will be several complaints saying that the ad was a little over the top in terms of God, but you don’t have to believe in the Almighty to appreciate a great ad that uses a message to pay homage to farmers, who pretty much keep the world going.

Which commercial won you over during the Super Bowl?
