This is one of the few -if not the only- state where you'll see stuff like that.

See also - Texas edition pickups of various brands.

Ever heard that "Salute to you" Bud commercial where they solute the "Way too proud of Texas Guy"? It's flippin hillarious.

You already got a good response, but I have to add my own:
I'd never buy that beer for the reasons you stated, but it's a reason to love Texas whether you drink the stuff or not.

I also love the localized TV ads that capture the culture and feel of Texas. There's one I see in Austin (don't know if it's shown elsewhere) for a car repair place, and it has this great catchy song with the following lyrics:

I was born in Texas,
I'm tried and true
I'm a Lone Star sun-of-a-gun
red, white and blue!
I was raised in Texas,
'til the day I die
Gimme outlaw country Willie and Waylon
It's a darn good life!


It just makes me happy. Call me an idiot, but I love the down-home Texas-friendly folksy attitude that's still surviving in spite of the fact that Texas is rapidly changing.

It makes me happy to know I'm not the only one who gets a grin out of that type of advertising.

Do you remember the series of public service ads for the "Don't Mess With Texas" campaign that ran on TV several years ago? I haven't seen them in a long time, but they would feature some of the most colorful characters in Texas such as Willie Nelson, and they were usually very funny and well-produced. Every time I'd see one of those, I'd smile.

And one more, there's a bank that had a TV ad showing people driving slowly on a country road, doing the casual index-finger wave as they passed other cars. The classic country thing to do. The ad just showed a couple scenes like that, no music or anything, and then they say "We Speak Texan." I loved that!

Very few people from outside Texas would understand why these silly things are meaningful to those of us who are sentimental about Texas.
