This Man Realizes That Having A Bud Light Vendor Follow Him Everywhere Isn’t So Great

Be careful what you wish for. In Bud Light’s new spot, a guy gets an ice cold Bud Light from a vendor at a Jets game (though if you’re a Jets fan, I think you’ll need something stronger). He wishes out loud that it would be awesome if the vendor was around all the time. And then he is. Dude’s wish starts out well when they’re hanging out in the living room and when he’s taking a shower, but then it goes awry. Loud offers of ice cold Bud Light aren’t really what you want when you’re sleeping. Or in a work meeting, a movie, and even worse, at a funeral. After our protagonist sees the poor vendor standing out in the rain when he and his buddies are toasting over Bud Lights at a bar, he decides it’s time to return the Bud Light guy to his natural habitat: the stadium. The vendor is played by Billy Cowart.

Budweiser’s Tribute To #2, Derek Jeter

On Sunday, New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter will have his #2 retired by the team. The Yankees have had such a long and storied history that there will be no single digit numbers that haven’t been retired (except for 0). Whether you’re a Yankees lover or hater, Derek Jeter’s impact as a baseball icon cannot be downplayed. So Budweiser’s new tribute ad, fittingly called “This Bud’s for 2”, pays homage to Jeter. The spot opens with his final at-bat at Yankee Stadium in 2014, where he struck a walk-off single. A storybook ending, truly. The ad goes on to show various locales in New York, where the number 2 is being removed, and replaced with his #2 Yankees decal. We see various highlights of Jeter’s career, while the city honors him. It’s a stirring ad from Budweiser, created by VaynerMedia.

Budweiser Tells The Immigrant Story Of Adolphus Busch In Its Super Bowl Commercial

Advertising often reflects the events of the outside world. So at a time when immigration is a red-hot topic, especially in the United States, it’s not surprising that Budweiser would create an ad about the immigrant story of the co-founder of Anheuser-Busch, Adolphus Busch. It’s a compelling, well-shot commercial that’s racked up more than 6 million views only a few days after being released online. Here’s more from Adweek.

Budweiser: Don’t Drive Drunk. Love, Your Dog

There are many reasons not to drive drunk. But Budweiser presents an original and adorable reason not to do it. This one has been lighting up the Internet, with almost 9 million views in three days. And for good reason. The doggy and message are so cute.

The Super Bowl Is Over…Some Thoughts

This year’s Super Bowl was a big disappointment. The game, which figured to be an evenly matched event between the NFL’s top offense and top defense, ended up being a 43-8 rout. The ads were equally mediocre. There were some good ones…I enjoyed Toyota’s spot with the Muppets and Terry Crews and Coca-Cola’s “America the Beautiful” was quite nice too. But there was only one ad that stood out as being an instant classic. That of course, was Budweiser’s “Puppy Love” which was a landslide winner for the Super Bowl’s best commercial. It was a great one, but after being online since Wednesday, it wasn’t a surprise to millions. It aired in one of the most expensive times during the game, right after the 2-minute warning, in what was expected to be a pivotal moment in a close game. But since it was a blowout, many people had probably tuned out by then.

And here’s a commercial that’s been lighting up the Internet today. This 2-minute spot only aired in Savannah, Georgia, and dramatically tells the story of lawyer Jamie Casino. It’s awesome, so you should watch it right now.

 

 

Budweiser Has A Super Bowl Ad With A Puppy AND The Clydesdales

Budweiser is always a huge Super Bowl advertiser, and this spot is a big hit, garnering more than 1.5 million views since being released earlier today. People love puppies and people love the Clydesdales, so if you combine the two, you know it’ll be popular. The song is “Let Her Go” by Passenger.

Tuesday Throwback: Budweiser’s Wassup?

Budweiser’s “Wassup?” campaign ran from 1999 to 2002, and I’ve posted the original ad. It of course featured friends using the titular phrase until it became humorously contorted. As could be expected, the commercial was hilarious and “wassup?” became a national catchphrase which got old real quickly. The people who used it for years tended to be the types who said “and this one time at band camp…” in everyday conversation until 2010.
