Super Bowl Jeep Ad Pays Tribute To Military Families (Video)

Jeep "Whole Again" Commercial

Although some polls show the Budweiser Clydesdale ad as the favorite, I know a lot of folks in the military were touched by the two-minute long Jeep "Whole Again" commercial, voiced by Oprah Winfrey, which paid tribute to the sacrifices made by military families.

As The Daily Beast wrote about the commercial:

Half the battle is making it through this ad without crying.

Yep. The ad definitely gets a Home Post "tearjerker alert."

Interesting fact: The U.S. military first used the Jeep Willys as a reconnaissance vehicle during World War II, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Did you get a chance to see the Jeep ad? What did YOU think?
