This is truly the Super Bowl commercial FOX TV didn’t want you to see.
While the first half of this spot by 84 Lumber, debuted during the Super Bowl last night, viewers were urged to see the second half online. Titled, “The Entire Journey,” the commercial chronicles a mother and daughter’s symbolic migrant journey towards becoming legal American citizens.
FOX TV apparently told 84 Lumber the image of an actual wall was too controversial for their viewers.
I really encourage you to watch the full 5 minute video. The tag line at the end hits it.
If this doesn’t affect you, it probably says something about your perspective on the world.
Bravo to student filmmaker Eugen Merher of Germany.
Merher’s spec spot for Adidas has a visceral pull that’s undeniable. The minute and a half video tells the tale of a senior in a retirement home who dreams of his days as a marathon runner.
And then one day, he finds an old pair of Adidas running shoes.
This one will tug at you.
The 26-year-old student at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg told the Huffington Postthat he tried to share it with the footwear company: “We tried sending it to [Adidas’] communications department but they didn’t really react.”

Max Lenox is a senior at the U.S. Military Academy. But wait: His path there has not been storybook pat. Lenox will be the first to tell you he is no genius. He flunked two classes as a freshman and almost got kicked out; like Gen. George Patton, Lenox is a “turnback,” a cadet forced to repeat his plebe year and to graduate late. Last year, in a class of 1,084, he was ranked No. 903.
It’s important to note in watching Max’s story and reading his life journey that the haters who would deny loving gay or lesbian couples the right to marry and raise kids is supposedly based on the idea that gay couples don’t make for a stable and supportive environment for kids. With that in mind, I’d love to know where folks like Brian Brown of the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage would have preferred to see Max Lenox end up?
