Budweiser Clydesdale ads did not make the cut for the SuperBowl
Are you kidding me? The Clydesdales are not going to be in the SuperBowl this year? Those powerful iconic, I think of Budweiser every time I see one, Clydesdales are not going to be a commercial in this years Super Bowl!
I understand that Budweiser needs to be very selective about its choosing of commercials especially when it costs about $2.5 million for 30 secs, but come on its the Clydesdales! They have had the best commercials – the horse football teams (who can forget the one with the sheep streaker), the little foal wishing to grow up and be one of the majestic horses in the Budweiser harness, The Budweiser the donkey coveting to be a Budweiser Clydesdale, and even just the Budweiser Clydes hooked up to the cart delivering the Bud. Classic and traditional like Budweiser itself.
In full disclosure I do not drink, but I have friends who do! When we buy beer for parties it is always Budweiser and Corona (full disclosure here: I know Corona is not a Bud product). I am hoping to change the minds of the Budweiser execs and go with a Clydesdale commercial for the Super Bowl. It is going to be difficult, according to an MSNBC article, Budweiser going for laughs this Super Bowl, marketing exec Keith Levy stated that the Clydesdale ads did not pass consumer testing. That’s a shame, but I would like all you horse lovers, Super Bowl ad lovers and Budweiser lovers if you agree with me and wish to see the Clydesdales at the SuperBowl – give Budweiser a call and let them know – 1-800-DIAL-BUD Maybe we can make a difference as the final choices have not been made. We have until Feb 7th!
