John Cena is closely identified with America when it comes to wrestling fans. In an ad released last week, he's doing what he can to promote love in America.
With racial, sexual and political divide running wild in the United States, the WWE and John Cena released a video on Independence Day, highlighting the diversity in which the country has.
In the video, Cena asks viewers to imagine the average American, to results that could be quite surprising. R/GA and the Ad Council launched the Independence Day ad titled “We Are America” that shows the United States Champion Cena promoting Love Has No Labels, a movement to paint “a true portrait of America.”
Cena goes on to say “Patriotism shouldn’t just be about pride of country, it should be about love…beyond age, disability, sexuality, race, religion and any other labels, because the second any of us judge people based on any of those labels,”
“At a time when it feels hard for our country to find common ground, we need to remind audiences that to celebrate America is to celebrate all Americans. We’re so proud to continue the ‘Love Has No Labels’ message as part of the July 4 holiday and throughout the year,” Ad Council president and CEO Lisa Sherman said when speaking to Adweek. “‘We Are America’ illuminates what we already know—that Americans today cover the full spectrum of age, sexuality, ability, race and religion. And this message is just as important now as ever.”
