Before “Pure Michigan”, there were “YES! Michigan” commercials

Tim Allen, a Michigan native, is known for being a comedian, television and film actor, and most recently for lending his voice to the Pure Michigan campaign which helps bring tourists to Mitten State each year. . In these commercials that began airing on radio and TV in 2008, Tim speaks softly over a piano version of the song The Cider House Rules while beautiful footage from all over Michigan plays and shows why people should come and visit our great state.


I love the Pure Michigan commercials, every time I hear them on the radio or see them on TV I want to get in my car with my wife Lindsey and our two dogs Benny and Paddy and explore all the places in Michigan where I’ve never been to before.
