If you watched the SuperBowl (or, more likely, watched the commercials the next day on the net), you probably saw the Dodge commercial, Farmer, the audio of which was taken from a speech made by Paul Harvey, So God Made a Farmer.
I actually really liked the commercial, and it really struck a chord with a lot of people.
I got in touch with Chester Gifford, the guy who wrote it, and asked if he minded if I made a video to accompany it. He didn’t, so that was the first step.
Next, I needed a lot of pictures. I went to the LOPSA Board, explained what I wanted to do, and asked if they minded if I emailed pretty much all of the local chapter mailing lists requesting pictures. They didn’t. So that was the next step.
Now, I just needed someone to read it. I had no idea who I was going to get, but as luck would have it, when I emailed the Columbus LOPSA chapter, my buddy Drew Stemen asked me if I had anyone to record the voice yet. Funny you should mention it… so that was the third step.
Yesterday, I spent some serious hours getting things arranged. It took serious hours because I’m really not good with iMovie. Like, I’m bad at it. Which is fine, since I don’t actually do it for my day job. But if you notice any oddities, it’s probably because I’m bad at iMovie. Sorry about that.
So without further ado or apologies, I present God Made a SysAdmin
