Remember that Cadillac ad bragging about American exceptionalism that made everyone who doesn’t drive a Cadillac feel pretty bad about America?
Ford can play that game, too, apparently:
The Cadillac ad used an actor. The Ford ad used a real person. Pasho Murray, owner of Detroit Dirt, a company that turns waste into compost and sells it to people who want to create urban gardens.

About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
