Best TV Ad You Probably Didn’t See: Unless you follow the Indy Racing League, that is. Firestone created a 2 and 1/2 minute video for a corporate event, celebrating their involvement in racing by focusing on the traditions and history of the Indianapolis 500. It was then edited to 90 seconds for airing as a TV ad during the races. I grew up in Central Indiana, steeped in the traditions and loving the vibe of the Month of May, and this ad never fails to connect to those memories. It stands up the hairs on my arms every time I see it.
Here’s Firestone’s Ode to Racing. Enjoy.
