I asked David who he was cheering for in the big game tomorrow, Denver or Seattle? He replied "Budweiser!" I laughed and agreed with him. We watch the Super Bowl for the ads. I guess that makes them worth $4 million dollars per 30 seconds.
I am one of those 56% of Americans that watch the Super Bowl for the ads. The ones I look forward to the most are the Budweiser Clydesdale ads. I am a sucker for a beautiful horse with a heart warming story. Last year it was the pain of separation between horse and trainer. This year Budweiser went all out and threw in a shelter dog that keeps getting out.
Like they typically do, Budweiser will be featuring their famous Clydesdales in one of their 2013 Super Bowl commercials. We're still not quite sure what they signify. (Budweiser: so good even a giant horse will drink it?)
The Budweiser brewing company is learning a valuable lesson about free publicity. 'Flight,' which hit theaters this past weekend to an impressive $25 million at the box office, is facing some drama with the Anheuser-Busch beer company in light of the fact that the product placement of Budweiser can arguably be linked to drunk driving. Talk about a big whoops!
