This clever CVA muzzleloader commercial pays homage to the movie “Jeremiah Johnson.” It is a must-see clip for all hunters and lovers of the outdoors.
If you haven’t seen the movie “Jeremiah Johnson,” you really should. Robert Redford delivers a fantastic performance, and it is one of the best films ever made for hunters and outdoorsmen.
One of the most memorable scenes involves Redford’s character, Jeremiah Johnson, encountering the frozen corpse of Hatchet Jack. Jack left a will bequeathing his .50 caliber Hawken rifle to whoever finds him. Johnson literally pries the rifle from the man’s cold, dead hands and uses it with great success throughout the rest of the movie.
This clever CVA muzzleloader commercial pays homage to the famous scene.
The character in the commercial hit the jackpot! While the .50 caliber Hawken rifle was a great rifle in the mid-1800s, I’d much rather have a CVA Accura with a scope.
Check out the film to see the original Hatchet Jack scene.
