Billy Bob Thornton talks about how to make a Texas. "So you wanna make a Texas. The recipe starts with these ingredients. 269,000 square miles, a quarter million farms, 10,000 some-odd ranches, lots of coastline, and lakes by the handful. Good dirt, clear water, corn, cattle, and all the sky you can handle. Combine these ingredients well and let warm in the sun. Now stir in 28 million people. Try to find a good mix. A pinch of this and a dash of that. It'll help give the dish so much more flavor. Combine all remaining ingredients, season to taste with generous dashes of music, laughter, family meals, Sunday picnics, tailgates, barbecues, and quinceañeras. Garnish with a single star. Now serve and enjoy."
Even though I'm not from Texas, I liked the overall theme of this commercial. Thinking of Texas, or any state, deconstructed as a recipe full of many different and diverse ingredients is pretty clever. Also, I'm a big fan of Billy Bod Thornton, so that's always a plus. His voice is easy to listen to. Sometimes commercials will have a big celeb do the narration and their voice is just terrible and you have a hard time understand what they're trying to say, but that's definitely not the case here.
