Huh. Glenn Beck has a denim line. Yes, the ex-FOX News guy. It's called 1791 Denim and all the denim was produced in in 2012 (not 1971). Here's the commercial. Glenn doesn't appear in the commercial but he does talk over everyone else in the commercial (he's the only one speaking) about the first american blue jeans and the dreams that these jeans built.
