Kevin Hart: The American Dream

This is not the original video or commercial it was deleted from youtube. I wrote this post for the commercial I originally posted one that related to the examples I gave.

I’ve been seeing this commercial a lot and hadn’t realized until today that it related to the American Dream. The first video that I saw was not as long and didn’t talk about things he didn’t do. When looking into the video more I found this longer version and knew I had to write a post on it. Making a distinction between what he did and didn’t do has made it pertain even more to class. The video shows all the ways that people can make it to the top; trying to be someone your not to fit in and making connections, though you may not like the person behind the connection. Then the commercial hits you with hard work the ultimate American way to make it to the top. Vitamin Water’s slogan is hydrate the hustle which started out for exercise purposes, with this commercial they are shifting their focus to broaden the spectrum to reach all social classes with the American Dream and hard work.

About the Author

Hello, I am a student @ UMW. I was forced by my freshmen seminar class called Inequality and the American Dream, to create a blog about topics that we discus throughout the class. Though this is the main reason the blog was created, I have also created it to be a sort of journal of my time @ UMW. Not about my social life but about the interesting and fun things that I do in my classes. I hope that others will join in to share things that relate or topics that would create interesting conversations!! I hope you have fun and enjoy this blog!!
