A clydesdale sitting on a bench?...I'd pay money to see that.
Of course, north of the border we don't get the "good commercials"...from the Super Bowl
The commercials on British (UK) tv are more entertaining...
The full article says Bud is using Super Bowl
time* to publicize its warm and fuzzy side. The internet will still have the Clydeweiser Budsdales related stuff.
A-B and other brewers changed over their production lines to canned water, to be sent to Puerto Rico and other places after the hurricanes. I had never heard of it, but it has been done regularly, without fanfare.
*$5,000,000 per 30 seconds.
RE: canned water,
That is a good use of resources to assist Puerto Rico.
North of the border(in Canada) many consider ALL America beer to be canned water
i haven't had anything but craft beer in years.
And THAT is why A-B and others are changing their ad forms and pitches.
Just one more reason to not watch
It's like Budweiser decided to 'take a knee', too.
Toni, even for you that's too much non-sequitur.
Actually, it's not.
The Clydesdales and other ads during the Super Bowl are favorites of many home tv watchers and they're looked forward to....sometimes even more than the 'super' stars that are the halftime entertainment. Those horses were a staple for many years and to make a decision to not have an ad anymore that includes them is a real disappointment and let down. The same feelings many of us have with the NFL players and management that allow their players to 'take a knee' when they have so many other rules that they've enforced heavily over the years that are actually considered to be trivial by them (like having the Dallas police officers' tribute or the name of a fallen player tribute refused). No tributes/support allowed, but a protest is.........
It's not an American company anymore
and the "Stupid Bowl" isn't really a contest of who can draw the most spectators to actually watch the game. I don't have cable and not much interest in pro sports. With the Winter Olympics coming up, I'll wait. Watching a bunch of guys bust each other's head's and bring lawsuits because of their injuries is not that appealing right now.
RE: It's not an American company anymore
It never was an American company if you are a supporter of TheRUMP
Donald Trump supporters call for Budweiser boycott following pro-immigration Super Bowl advert
Following Donald Trump’s executive order stopping persons from seven predominantly-Muslim countries from entering the United States, tensions are high around the world.
Extraordinarily, Budweiser released one of the most perfectly-timed adverts in recent memory: a one-minute clip telling the tale of co-founder Adolphus Busch’s travels to America.
Titled “Born the Hard Way,” the incredible looking 60-second clip focusses on the German man’s journey in 1857, with people telling him “You’re not wanted here, go back home!” after landing on American soil.
What would improve ratings would be a HUUGGGEEEE RIOT in the stands...RUMP supporters against the rest of the spectators...
Git 'er DONE!!!!
At 5 megabucks a pop, it should be.
I fail to see any connection between Busch and Trump. Germany now has a large Muslim population, but not then, and not Busch or Stroh or Miller. [Miller???]
In the Navy I knew an old salt who remembered
WWI, as a youngster. He said, with sadness, that a German name on a business was enough to get it trashed.
We're all highly evolved now, though. We're more finely-tuned, as a needed defense mechanism. Just a hijab on a woman is enough.
Did I say "we"? I meant of course the WASP race. The minority that thinks it's a majority.
Canadian TV rules say the waitress can put the
beers on the table, but they must stay there. As a result, I learned about Canadian cultir from Molson's ads. Their motto was "Truly Canadian", so the sixty seconds was devoted to curling, duckpins (?) and the like.
