Goodyear puts out a Dale Earnhardt Jr. commercial that will give you chills
YouTube screen shot

Jim Croce died tragically and way too young in a plane crash in 1973 (can you believe it’s been that long?) at the age of 30. In a short musical  career, he recorded a number of hits, including, I got a name.

Fast forward to 2018. Croce’s song is the backdrop on a new Goodyear tire commercial featuring Dale Earnhardt Jr, with a quick shot of the legendary No. 3 his dad drove.

And, it’s terrific.

It shows Dale Jr. as a child, a young adult, and then an adult. It shows the No. 3 as the lyric, “and I carry it with me like my daddy did,” plays in the backgound. It ends with a young Dale Jr. saying, I just kinds of want to make my own name.

“I like to tell the story,” Earnhardt Jr. told ESPN. “It makes for a good story. It makes sense to me with Goodyear because (Dale Sr.)  was a big fan of Goodyear. … He would be right there beside me if he could, telling the same story.”

For Goodyear, the commercial is more than a TV spot.

The story takes on an extra meaning because A.J. Croce — Jim Croce’s son — sings his version of the song. So Goodyear managed to blend together the two families, both with fathers who died tragically.

But don’t expect to see Junior in just any old commercial. He’ll get a lot of opportunities, and will carefully weigh each one.

“If you are doing a personal services agreement, you definitely, every time you get presented with an opportunity, you have to ask yourself whether it aligns with your brand, your message.”

The message on this Goodyear commercial is spectacular.
