Carnival: Come Back to the Sea – Super Bowl

Carnival Corporation‘s “Come Back to the Sea” commercial which made its TV debut in the Super Bowl. They using beautiful footage with cruise ships and a voice over of former President John F. Kennedy.

John F. Kennedy wording:

I really don’t know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it’s because in addition to the fact that the sea changes and the light changes, and ships change, it’s because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch it we are going back from whence we came.

Some people are not happy with this statment as they wrote things like “I didn’t come from the sea. Your anti-Christian commercial was divisive. Adam came from God breathing life into dust.” or “That Carnival commercial said we come from the sea…..well I believe the Bible says something different.”

Good voice over
