SAN ANTONIO -- H-E-B is trying to dispel a few Texas myths in a Super Bowl ad featuring Texas native and country music star Jack Ingram.

Ingram starts out the commercial by explaining that he hears a lot of the typical Texas stereotypes while touring the country. You know, like
how all Texans wear belt buckles, ride horses to work and eat barbecue for every meal.

A sneak preview of the commercial was released on Wednesday.


The San Antonio-based grocery chain will also be launching a social media campaign asking people to tweet what they think makes a


I remember once going to Florida and being so disappointed that there wasn't an H-E-B. But seriously, I've legit had kids in school who were from other states literally think that we (Texans) took carriages/horses to school. LOL

When people find out I'm from Vegas, they assume I live in a hotel.

my knee-jerk assumption is that you live in an old style one-story house suburbs in the middle of a desert.

Most of the homes in Vegas are those new cookie cutter suburb masterplan homes.

I live in a qt midrise on the far south side of the strip

LOL... my coworker is from Vegas and always jokes he was born on a craps table.

I grew up in BF California and when I'd travel people would ask if I went to the beach every day and how many movie stars I'd seen. I lived 2 hours from a beach and well no movie stars would even know where my hometown is. We did go cow tipping though.

Whenever I hear people live in Vegas, I assume they live somewhere like this: http://media.web.britannica.com/eb-media/48/148448-004-F8A389EC.jpg

Where it takes ten minutes just to get out of your subdivision.
