PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — An ad for presidential nominee Joe Biden voiced by actor Sam Elliott has lit up Twitter.
The commercial — which aired during Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night — features the performer’s rustic, matchless voice saying, “No Democratic rivers, no Republican mountains, just this great land and all that’s possible on it with a fresh start.”
“Cures we can find, futures we can shape, work to reward, dignity to protect.”
Naturally, reactions to the 60-second ad titled “Go From There” erupted on Twitter; some praised the tranquility Elliott’s voice provided while others bashed the actor’s jump to the left.
“Joe Biden doesn’t need everyone in this country to always agree, just to agree that we all love this country” — narrator says in Biden’s World Series ad, a dramatically different two-weeks-out message than the one Trump’s been articulating https://t.co/vj7S8guZ5b— Philip Rucker (@PhilipRucker) October 21, 2020
This is the best Biden ad so far. Absolutely awesome. Thank you, Sam Elliott. https://t.co/oYh5enFiLC— Jon Cooper 🇺🇸 (@joncoopertweets) October 21, 2020
Sam Elliott voicing a political ad doesn’t change that the candidate’s crack-addled son left his laptop and signed receipt that was turned over to the FBI and confirms year$ of Joe Biden peddling influence as VP. Actually I would like to hear Sam Elliott narrate that.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) October 21, 2020
Elliott, who was born in Sacramento, California, moved to Northeast Portland when he was 13 and graduated from David Douglas High School in 1962. He followed by attending the University of Oregon as an English and psychology major before dropping out after two terms. He later returned to the Portland area to attend Clark College and still has a property in the Willamette Valley, according to The Register-Guard.
