A Detailed Look at the Super Bowl’s Best Commercial

Tribute to the Declaration of Independence
The Declaration of Independence was written in 1776 and every day since then, brave men and women in uniform have protected its principles. This is a tribute to the ideas contained in this document and its guardians.

History of this Tribute:
Twelve years ago, FOX Sports had the honor of broadcasting Super Bowl XXXVI, just 6 months after the 9/11 tragedy. The opening focal point of its broadcast was a piece in which the Declaration of Independence was read by fourteen current and former members of the NFL.

Now, the Declaration of Independence piece is the cornerstone of FOX Sports’ Super Bowl coverage. For the Super Bowl XLVIII, Jennifer Pransky, FOX Sports feature producer, has reshot 100% of the piece featuring NFL legends, military veterans, other America heroes, and a surprise duo at the tribute’s close.

We are very proud to be working with Jennifer Pransky and the talented FOX Sports team again to contribute the soundtrack for this epic sports event feature

An Original Music Composition
“Heart of Independence” is an original composition created for this feature by Placement Music and Steve Dancz, who collaborated in 2011 on the award winning score, “Declaration Anthem”, for the Super Bowl XLV (2011) feature. Part of “Declaration Anthem” will be incorporated into the new score.

FOX Sports commissioned Placement Music for this year’s musical score for the second consecutive Fox Sports broadcast. Just like in 2011, Tammy Hurt, managing partner of Placement Music and memberof The Recording Academy® National Board of Trustees, collaborated with Steve Dancz on the production.

For more than 25 years, Dancz has composed and produced music for countless soundtracks seen by millions around the world. Known for the stylistic range and emotional depth of his music, he has been hired repeatedly by iconic names like Columbia Pictures, CBS, HBO, National Geographic, Paramount Pictures, TBS, the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, Discovery Networks, PBS and NPR.

The featured trumpet is performed by Charles “Chuck” Arnold, an Atlanta-area professional trumpet player and music educator. Arnold is a ten-year veteran of the U.S. Navy, where he served in Navy Band San Diego, the U.S. 7th Fleet Band in Yokosuka, Japan, the U.S. 6th Fleet Band in Naples, Italy, and Navy Band New Orleans, in New Orleans, LA.

Leslie Ann Jones was the music score mixer for this piece just like she was in 2011. Jones is a multiple Grammy Award-winning recording engineer working as Director of Music Recording and Scoring at Skywalker Sound, of Lucasfilm, Ltd. Fame.

Assisting Dancz with the production was the team at Tunewelders Music, another Atlanta-based operation. Jason Shannon and Jeremy Gilbertson worked on a Dorito’s commercial for last year’s Super Bowl and this year helped bring the score to life by helping to create a virtual orchestra.

The Open: President Josiah Bartlett

We begin with a closeup pan of US servicemen and women reading quotes from our Founders.

SERVICE MEMBER 1: Our obligations to our country never cease, but with our lives.
SERVICE MEMBER 2: We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.
SERVICE MEMBER 3: Action will delineate and define you.

martin-sheen

Soon, the camera settles on a familiar presidential face, Martin Sheen. Among the characters he has played in his career, Sheen gained quite the bully pulpit as President Josiah Bartlet in The West Wing (1999–2006). It was his second White House role, having first played Chief of Staff to Michael Douglas’ President Andrew Shepherd in The American President.

MARTIN SHEEN: Those words of John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson ring true today. Over 237 years ago, our Forefathers had the future of this nation in their hands.

With one document they declared not only our independence, but what it means to be an American – that liberty and equality are fundamental to who we are.

And for the 237 years that have followed, our brave men and women in uniform have fought to protect everything that the Declaration of Independence set forth. Every day that we live free, we honor their sacrifice to protect the ideals upon which America was founded.”

Declaration Reading #1:

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.

Edwin Eugene “Buzz” Aldrin, Jr. was the lunar module pilot on Apollo 11, the first manned lunar landing in history. He became the second person to walk on the moon, minutes after mission commander Neil Armstrong became the first.

Aldrin attended the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, having turned down a full scholarship offer from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He graduated third in his class at West Point in 1951 and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force.

As an active duty officer, he flew 66 combat missions during the Korean War and shot down two enemy aircraft. The June 8, 1953, issue of Life magazine featured gun camera photos taken by Aldrin of one of the Russian pilots ejecting from his damaged aircraft. He remains a pretty bad ass who makes even Chuck Norris nervous.

FLOTUS: Through depression and prosperity… through civil war and world war… America has endured as a shining example to the world because we have always held tight to our founding ideals.

And generation after generation, that pledge has been upheld through the hard work and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform. They’ve fought for us. They’ve died for us. They’ve answered the call of duty again and again.

DR. BIDEN: Today, our troops continue to deploy to the most dangerous parts of the world, risking their lives in order to protect our lives, our fortunes, our sacred honor. And as they serve, their families must also make sacrifices.

FLOTUS: So now, we must do our part, as well. All of us can find new ways to salute the service of the troops, veterans and military families who have given us so much. And if we do that, together, we can uphold the founding promise of our country and preserve the rights and freedoms that we all hold so dear.
