State Farm’s “Empire State Of Mind” 9/11 Tribute Commercial

By 09.11.11

Today saw numerous tributes and ceremonies commemorating 9/11 but State Farm’s commercial using Alicia Keys’ “Empire State Of Mind (Part II)” may have been one of the best. I’ve seen it at least 15 times since 7 AM this morning and watching the school kids thanking FDNY members still gives me a sugar lump each time. Respect to director Spike Lee for using our music to make a stirring moment.
