The Tebow Ad // The Day After
So what was all the fuss about? The Super Bowl came. The Tim Tebow ad aired. And the Saints went marching on. To be honest I was underwhelmed by the Tebow ad. But then again, could any ad have lived up to the hype. And to be fair the hype was not built by anybody at Focus on the Family, but by everybody else. So I have a few thoughts after finally seeing the ad myself:
- It was an excellent ad. It made me feel good and smile. It was classy and light. Not deep, heavy or “serious” in tone.
- The ad carried two printed phrases at the end: Celebrate Family. Celebrate Life. WHO could be opposed to that message??! Very biblically based.
- The pro-abortion crowd made this a big deal. Had they kept quiet the ad would have come and gone without much fanfare.
- As a result of a very vocal pro-abortion voice, the Tebow ad in some ways actually overshadowed the Super Bowl itself (at least the build up to the Super Bowl) and in turn gave Focus on the Family MILLIONS of more dollars of exposure that went way beyond the 30 seconds they purchased in the Super Bowl. This ended up being advertising money WELL spent. Thank you to the pro-abortion crowd.
I have heard that some people are upset because they believe the ad promotes abuse against women because Tebow “tackles” his mom. Wow…I’m not even going there.
Some people just don’t want to be happy. Others want to truly Celebrate Family and Celebrate Life.
