‘So God Made a Farmworker’: Superbowl Ad Spoof

Amien Essif

We wanted to make sure you didn't miss the announcement of our new Sustainer program. Once you've finished reading, take a moment to check out the new program, as well as all the benefits of becoming a Sustainer.

One Superbowl ad—Dodge Truck’s “God Made a Farmer”—generated a buzz and quite a few spoofs for its “shameless heartland pandering,” as one response video from FunnyOrDie.com put it.This spoof (above), from Cuentame (the Latino Instigators), corrects Dodge’s ad, saluting the people who actually do most of the hard work. Hint: It’s not white males who can afford a $20,000 pickup truck.

Be a Sustainer

We surveyed thousands of readers and asked what they would like to see in a monthly giving program. Now, for the first time, we're offering three different levels of support, with rewards at each level, including a magazine subscription, books, tote bags, events and more—all starting at less than 17 cents a day. Check out the new Sustainer program.
