Deadline.com just announced that Friday Night Light’s writer and director Peter Berg asked presidential candidate Mitt Romney to stop using the slogan ‘Clear Eyes. Full Hearts. Can’t Lose.’ in his campaign. Friday Night Lights is based on the trials and tribulations of a Texas high school football team and their coach, played by Kyle Chandler.
Berg sent an official letter to the governor stating “Your politics and campaign are clearly not aligned with the themes we portrayed in our series.” It’s interesting that Romney would even use a slogan from Friday Night Lights. The dramatic television series covered controversial topics such as abortion, military families, homosexuality, and even murder – plenty of motif’s Romney wouldn’t want associated with his campaign. | Full Story
