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

ITA with the second part. So many people are all "OMG, I want to move away blah blah blah" and I just can't wrap my mind around that. Why not stay and fight the good fight, instead of leaving it to the crazies? I love my state too much to abandon it. I dunno.

Yep. :) It's hard to explain people that I actually do really love Texas, because there are a lot of non-crazy people here, too. I don't blame people that want to leave. But they are slowly trying to take away rights from women and our education is going to shit... I can't stand for that. I have to stay here and continue to vote and help and hope that one day it will make a difference.
