Tupac’s Rose Lives

I’ve confessed my deep love and admiration for the rapper, actor and poet Tupac Amaru Shakur here and here.  Imagine my delight when earlier this week while preparing dinner I heard my favorite poem of his during this commercial –

It’s evident that Tupac’s poem A Rose That Grew From Concrete was the entire inspiration behind this clever advertising.  It does my heart good to hear and see Tupac’s genius continue to live and go mainstream.

I was beyond excited to share this, give Ford major props and even tweet them #winning because I refuse to believe that they didn’t obtain permission from the Shakur estate as few are reporting.  But, if I’m wrong, Ford go fix that immediately!

What commercial do you especially enjoy because it includes one of your favorite musicians?
