Super Bowl farmer ad: Paul Harvey's "God made a farmer" ad wows during Super Bowl (VIDEO)
Dodge made a splash during Super Bowl XLVII with their ad "God made a farmer."
Chatter about two minute ad, which pays tribute to the American farmer, immediately lit up Twitter and Facebook.

While a majority of the comments were positive, not everyone was pleased. Slate.com voiced their frustration, claiming the ad wasn't new. The audio itself was recorded by Paul Harvey in 1978, and the video was similar to that of a 2011 Farms.com campaign. You can read more about that here: http://slate.me/11BmIB3
