“Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, America Can’t Lose” emerged as a Romney slogan this week. Of course, fans of Friday Night Lights recognize it as an adaptation of the slogan for the Dillon Panthers. Mitt Romney is apparently a big fan of the show (no word on his stance on Gossip Girls). Peter Berg, one of the show’s creators, was not happy with his show’s slogan being tied to the Romney campaign, so he fired off a letter.
“The only relevant comparison that I see between your campaign and “Friday Night Lights” is in the character of Buddy Garrity — who turned his back on American car manufacturers selling imported cars from Japan.”
A unique occurrence here, someone from Hollywood complaining about a Republican candidate using their slogan or song.
