We Are America ft. John Cena | Love Has No Labels | Ad Council


Patriotism.
There’s a word thrown around a lot. It inspires passionate debate and is worn
like a badge of honor. And with good reason.
Because it means love and devotion for one’s country.
Love. For a word designed to unite, it can also
be pretty divisive. You see, there’s more to patriotism than
flag sequined onesies, and rodeos, and quadruple cheeseburgers.
Patriotism is love for a country, not just pride in it. But what really makes up this country of ours?
What is it we love? It’s more than a huge rock full of animals like cougars and eagles,
right? It’s the people.
Do me a favor and close your eyes for a second. I want to try something out.
Picture the average U.S. citizen. Think about it.
How old are they? What’s their hair like? How much can they bench?
Got one? Ok. So, the chances are the person you’re picturing
right now looks a little different to the real average American. There are 319 million U.S. citizens.
51% are female. So, first off, the average American is a woman.
Cool huh. Is that what you pictured? 54 million are Latino.
40 million are senior citizens. 27 million are disabled.
18 million are Asian (that’s more people in the U.S. than play football and baseball
combined) 9 million are lesbian, gay, bi, or transgender.
More than the entire amount of people that live in the state of Virginia.
Around 10 million are redheaded. 5.1 million play Ultimate Frisbee.
And 3 and a half million are Muslim. Triple the number of people currently serving
in the United States military. Almost half the country belongs to minority
groups. People who are lesbian. African American.
And bi. And transgender. And Native American. And proud of it!
We know that labels don’t devalue us, they help define us:
keeping us dialed in to our cultures, and our beliefs, and who we are. As Americans.
After all, what’s more American than the freedom to celebrate the things that make
us us? I mean, it’s stitched into the stars and
stripes of this country, from the Constitution, to Gettysburg, to our motto, “E Pluribus
Unum”, from many, one. It’s even in our country’s name – the UNITED States. This year patriotism shouldn’t just be about
pride of country. It should be about love.
Love beyond age, disability, sexuality, race, religion, and any other labels.
Because the second any of us judge people based on those labels, we’re not really
being patriotic, are we? So let’s try this one more time.
Close your eyes, picture that average Joe, or Joan, or Juan, or Jean-Luc.
The real people who make America America. And this year, whenever you feel the urge to don star spangled shorts, or set off fireworks the size of my biceps, to show love for our co untry, remember that to love America is to love all Americans. Because love has no labels.

  1. and the homeless ? smh I thought this country was united , unlike the UK they're actually doing something about them you can't just say that we are all untied when really we aren't…..

  2. How fitting that the music, at least in one part, comes from "The Truman Show", a movie about a man living in a fabricated reality. Fits this virtue-signaling horseshit perfectly.

  3. Of course love has labels… everyone loves someone for a reason. You don't wake up in the morning and love someone

  4. When he was in Louisiana,my little boy wanted to finally meet John Cena,before his pass,he died of a brain tumor,he never got to see him. That was his last wish

  5. WHAT THE HELL? THIS SHOULD BE PLAYING EVERYWHERE EVERY DAY.
    KEEP IT UP YOUTUBE AND YOU CAN HELP SAVE AMERICA JUST DO IT!

  6. Everyone wants world piece. Some people say they’ve lost faith in humanity, thinking there will never be a solution. What people don’t seem to realize is…the solution is right here in front of our faces. We have to stop blaming each other for every little thing that happens to us. We have to learn to love and forgive. That’s what will eradicate conflict, which will eradicate war. The world can be a better place than it’s becoming. All we have to do is open our eyes and see that we are all human.

  7. I'm only just seeing this. I have always loved john cena. This brings a greater love. To our country, and to every man, woman, and child in it

  8. I got destroyed a few years ago in comment's section saying i wish we had good Australian patriots like john Cena. Might of been a scripted add but gota say I'm more convinced hes truly in it just to try to unite America. Good bloke.

  9. I love it when rich celebrities take the time to come all the way down to the middle class and vomit idealistic platitudes directly into my eyeballs while offering no common sense solutions, like holding the media responsible for their divisive content or having reps like Omar and AOC take IQ tests before they're sworn in to office.

  10. You idiot don't Teel us what America is and who we should love . This kind of sissy thinking is destroying our country.

  11. Pretty sure this was filmed in Florida in Ybor City on the strip… A never more diverse place to film such a video. Then again I could be wrong it just looks a lot like my town.

  12. I’m Mexican , but man I love this country. When I’m older I’ll strive to help this country succeed and stay on top 🇺🇸!

  13. All the people he’s talking about are passing by him as he mentions them 🙌🙌 never noticed that, just looked like average Americans to me!

  14. i remember ad council from afn radio. i can't read the numbers with closed eyes
    they should add some more special fx like the body of Cena and the head of bill
    so there is a john gates on the screen

  15. When I think of patriotism, I think about veterans who have laid down their lives for our country. What I learned from this PSA is that there are more Muslims in this country than there are active military. I'm all for diversity and love of our fellow citizens. Do we all love our country? Yes. But let's recognize that some of our citizens haven given the ultimate sacrifice. Their lives. Please keep that sacred.

  16. I think when the director told him the line about closing your eyes he never opened them
    Otherwise, very inspiring speech!

  17. I didn’t learn anything from this that I didn’t live in person! Join the military and you will live out what Mr. Cena just described. We all bleed one color “RED” ! The stripes in our flag stands for the bloodshed on the battlefield! That is why it is so important to a veteran or his or her family that we respect the flag and stand for it or basically paying respect to what our forefathers gave us!

  18. Labels exist for a reason Mr. Cena. It's time for us to move beyond the emotional sensationalism and begin to understand why we do the things we do and why we evolved to use labels.

    Evolutionary understanding of our species is the only way forward.

  19. "Almost half the population belongs to minority groups" are they really minorities then? Seems like minority just means "not white"

  20. I was born in Mexico and I been here for 24 years half my life is here and the other half in my beautiful country but I learn a lot. Here in USA 🇺🇸 and one the things I learn is love the people love the flag and respect this country….my question is if this country give to Us a lot why we don't give to this beautiful country respect gratitude and love .. I love this country with. all my my heart that's why I fallow de rules Las respect this country and the flag and the army police fireman's navy Air Force and paramedics Las be united and keep move on because this is the first nation in the world.
