Hillary Clinton hoped Hollywood’s “Voice of God” would woo voters in a commercial that aired two years ago during her presidential campaign.

Morgan Freeman, who apologized Thursday after being accused by eight women of unwanted touching and harassment, narrated the spot.

“Her life’s work has been about breaking barriers and so would her presidency, which is why for every American who’s not being paid what they’re worth, who’s being held back by student debt or a system tilted against them, and there are far too many of you, she understands that our country can’t reach its potential unless we all do,” Freeman, who played God twice in comedies “Bruce Almighty” and “Evan Almighty,” said in the Clinton ad. “Together. A stronger country.”

The video shows Clinton interacting with supporters during her campaign trail throughout the years. Images of Clinton meeting an elderly woman or hugging an African-American woman appear on the screen as well.

“After law school, she could’ve joined a high-priced law firm, but instead, she worked to reform juvenile injustice in South Carolina,” Freeman adds. “Exposed racism in Alabama schools, registered Latino voters in Texas and provided legal aid to families in Arkansas.”
