Dolly Parton's Super Bowl Ad Encourages Entrepreneurship, Liberals Are Big Mad About It
Dolly Parton is one of the most successful businesswomen in the history of America. She once refused to let ELVIS PRESLEY record a song of hers because giving him publishing rights was a bad business deal. Dolly reworked her hit song 9 to 5 into 5 to 9 for a Super Bowl commercial. The company hosts websites. The concept is having a side business outside your "9 to 5" to grow and hopefully become your own boss. And for some reason, this really angered liberals.
Not just "I'm going to fire off a tweet" angry. They wrote think pieces about it.
Dolly Parton is awesome but this Super Bowl ad shows we live in a dystopia https://t.co/4RlgKC0Go9

That's right. A country singer advertising a web-hosting company is literally the Hunger Games. Which is ironic, because the people writing for Newsweek would most likely live in The Capitol.
A Super Bowl ad has remade Dolly Parton's feminist classic into an ode to hustle culture. It isn't quite as empowering as the original, @jessicabennett writes. https://t.co/o7BK6caqbq

"Hustle culture?" Seriously?
Opinion | Kim Kelly: As much as we all love Dolly Parton, it's still disappointing to hear her literally sing the praises of “working, working, working." https://t.co/RjA0CzdpmT - @NBCNewsTHINK

Side note: I wonder how many reporters upset about "working, working, working" don't have a beef with Joe Biden's recent executive order that destroyed jobs. That's over ten thousand people (allegedly) who are no longer working, working, working. Also from the NBC "Think" piece:
Rather than paying homage to the spirit of the original song ... its office workers are portrayed as being overjoyed to continue working after hours, their side hustles are painted as freeing, fun and fulfilling, and the song itself encourages them to "be your own boss, climb your own ladder." It's a perfect storm of gig economy propaganda. And it's a particularly disappointing message to hear from someone like Parton, who once warned us, “You're just a step on the boss man's ladder ..."
Yes, you're just a step on the boss man's ladder. SO BE YOUR OWN BOSS. I'd throw clap emojis in-between each word so that some people understand. But outside Twitter and TikTok videos, that's kinda obnoxious.
You would think after certain events from 2020 saw a lot of people out of work, encouraging people to be entrepreneurs and be their own boss would be a good thing. Control your own destiny. It makes it harder for other people to strip you of freedoms if they have no control over that freedom. Mayhaps the people angry at Dolly prefer it that way. They think everyone should have bosses and middle managers and a hierarchy like they do. Having a cultural icon suggests something different upsets the natural order of things.
Or, hear me out, maybe it's just a freaking commercial.
