has the coveted number one spot in the USA Todays Ad Meter
poll. Garnering a score of 8.46 of a possible 10, the homemade
commercial bumped Anheuser-Busch to second place. This accomplishment
awarded the Herberts with an additional $1,000,000.

Joe and his wife, Jayme, live in Batesville with their children,
Pierce, 4, and daughter, Kennedy, 2. Dave lives in Morris with
wife, Holly, son Adrik, 7, and daughters, Jazlin, 5, Nyah, 3,

quit their respective jobs, and pursued the dream that came true
this past Sunday.
