Immigrant rights groups re-make ‘So God Made a Farmer’ Super Bowl ad

Immigrant rights groups re-make ‘So God Made a Farmer’ Super Bowl ad

Dodge crafted a video that became one of the most-talked-about Super Bowl ads on Sunday, but immigrant rights groups responded with their own version of the ad, pointing out that Dodge’s whitewashed version of farming doesn’t necessarily reflect today’s reality.

Isaac Cubillos posted his version of the ad, similarly set to now-deceased right-wing radio personality Paul Harvey 1978 speech “So God Made a Farmer.” But instead of images of white male farmers, as featured in Sunday’s Dodge ad (riffed from an already existing YouTube video), but instead featured images of Latinos and Latinas.

Latino rights group Cuéntame also made a similar tribute to immigrant farmers, below.
