Tim Tebow Superbowl AD Video
January 26, 2010 by USA Post
Tim Tebow Superbowl AD Video:Focus on the Family has paid CBS $2.5 million for a 30-second Super Bowl commercial which will feature Tim and Pam Tebow.
The background for the ad involves the time when Pam, pregnant with Tim, contracted a serious disease while on a mission trip in the Philippines. She was urged by doctors to have an abortion – advice to which she promptly refused. For that decision, Tim Tebow is alive today.
David Moulton asks a very relevant question in his piece in naplesnews.com: “Is Tim Tebow hurting his popularity by appearing with his mom in an ad from a pro-life group in theSuper Bowl?”
To most on the left, the answer is a resounding “yes”. At this moment, there is a concerted campaign from this spectrum that is vehemently petitioning CBS to not
To many others, Tim Tebow is consistently demonstrating a passion for his faith and an underlying cause for which he holds dear.
Moulton summarizes Tim’s action very succinctly:
To me, it shows that Tebow is willing to not just talk the talk, but walk the walk. It shows to any that doubted him that his actions the last four years were not an act. He knows that not everyone will agree with him and that some people may stop liking him for standing up for what he believes in. He’s OK with that. I believe he thinks he is doing “God’s work.”
I applaud him for appearing in the ad (and CBS for running it). However, I do think there will be a backlash against him. From some fans, teams and even potential sponsors.
And I think a few owners and general managers will fall all over themselves to draft No. 15 in late April. They will see him as a man of character and a leader of men.
And Tebow will not care either way one bit. He will smile about all the attention this ad will generate toward something he cares passionately about. Then he will head off to continue working on making theSuper Bowl next time as a player, not just a spokesman.
