Mitt Romney is using a phrase from hit series “Friday Night Lights” to describe his campaign, and the creator, Peter Berg, is not enthused, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Hollywood Reporter exclusively obtained a letter Berg sent to Romney’s campaign asking him to stop using the phrase he came up with for “Friday Night Lights”: “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose.”
Romney has used the phrase as a slogan for his campaign on posters and on his Facebook Page:
Here’s the full letter, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Berg’s biggest zinger: “The only relevant comparison that I see between your campaign and Friday Night Lights is in the character of Buddy Garrity — who turned his back on American car manufacturers selling imported cars from Japan.”

Buzz Bissinger, the author of the book that inspired the television show, came out in support for Romney this week in a much-publicized and widely panned piece for The Daily Beast. He went on a Twitter rant amid the backlash.
