    Love the Bud commercials!

  • lildebrarae

    Now that is just too cute!

  • Steven Strimling

    This proves that Budweiser knows how to make a good commercial. Does it prove they know how to make beer?

    • Herman Vogel

      It is a good recreational drink. Utilitarian and versatile. Some beers may be uppity but Bud has been a standard for decades. The others,,,only cost more and make us think they are better,,,,BUT need an acquired taste to enjoy. I just like a good cold beer that doesn’t expect my approval.

      • Steven Strimling

        My point was not Budweiser’s quality, rather “in what way does this commercial tell me I should drink it?”

        • Herman Vogel

          It doesn’t,,,it’s just a feel good thing and then you want something to make you feel like a Man again….LOL..;)

        • bleedinell

          Don’t drink it; all the more for the rest of us!

    • Sharon

      There’s always that one person who has to be a jerk. Your comment is rude.

      • Steven Strimling

        It is a commercial for a product. I like it, but will you buy their beer because of this commercial? If not, how are you different from me?

        • Sharon

          It’s a cute ad. If people buy Budweiser because of the ad, that’s fine. It’s not about it being an ad for a product. How can you not see that?

  • Mark Kuykendall

    First rate

  • seazen

    America in a nutshell! Really getting excited about the importance of expensive videos to be shown on TV during a sporting event trying to get us to buy more beer! And with puppies!! This is probably one of the most important articles you will see today.

    • susandanielspi

      You’re a jerk. You miss the whole point.

      • seazen

        So help me out. What is “the whole point” and why should anyone care?

        • hwy505

          If you need help understanding friendship, then maybe you need to get out of the basement a little more.

          • Steven Strimling

            It is a commercial to sell a product. Budweiser feels they get the most bang for its buck by yanking your heartstrings. Consumers have been deluded into thinking it is more than that. I enjoyed it, but it won’t get me to buy their beer.

          • rocky63

            And you are perfectly free to choose as you wish.

    • Herman Vogel

      So you would rather have someone’s daughter run around half naked, spewing vulgarities and acting like a fool? Puppies and Horses are a mainstay in America…if you don’t like them, you know nothing about America and it’s beginning. This one is classy,,,the other companies,,,,Not so Much.

    • John Campbell

      I don’t drink beer. In fact, I don’t drink alcohol at all short of a spot of Blackberry Brandy in a four cup coffee cup that’ll last me several hours and that’s only for the blackberry flavoring and on a weekend sitting here at home while reading the forums.

      Fact is Budweiser has captured a big part of American heritage with the Clydesdales. I grew up on the farm/ranch. My Dad started me out as a very young boy with teams of horses. Belgians, Clydes, Dapples, throw in some saddle horses with a large heard of cattle and you realize, after it’s too late, you had the good life. Back then it was just work, real work, not romanticism. Puppies too. My dogs over the years have been a big part of my life. If you’ve never had a dog from day one throughout and worked with that dog daily while working the cattle and horses you truly missed a lot.

      Every Budweiser commercial with the Clydes and such brings a tear to my eyes and a longing for days long past that I wish I could have back again. Even the actions of the puppy in this one reminds me. I have a purebred rough collie (Lassie, for those who don’t know what that is) that’s just like the one I had as a young child. She played with the horses just the same as you see in this commercial from the time she was a pup. Budweiser took the spirit of striving to be the best that most of us take for granted as just daily life and encapsulated it into good, down-home, family values. Welcome to America. Welcome to the United States.

        Beautiful comment and I can relate. Boy could we swap some horse/dog stories…….I’ve got many. There is nothing like that life and I, too look at it longingly. If I had a chance and the right partner, I’d go back. I was lucky enough to raise my boys with those influences through much of their formative years and they are wonderful men because of it. They are grounded and have a great respect for real life…………Blessings to you, sir.

        • creeper

          You guys make me miss my dad, who told fond stories of plowing behing a team of Belgians.

          Is what we’ve made really progress?

          • Washington22

            Belgians……….I almost bought a team once. They were beautiful. I couldn’t justify buying them in my mind because I already had 3 Clydedales. Didn’t matter. I still wanted them ! Wish I could have heard your dad’s stories………I’m a sucker for a good swap of memories. Blessings, creeper

    Budweiser has the BEST COMMERCIAL EVER for the Super Bowl. Love the one especially for 9/11. Have a folder for them all, and when am down and out, put one of those Comm’ls on and sure does cheer you up. Thank you Budweiser

  • hwy505

    9/11 Tribute still the best.

    • Doug

      I’m partial to Go Daddy or any ad with hot models.

      • Herman Vogel

        Sad if that’s what attracts you,,,I have some land in West Texas with Lot of Women, Water and nice trees,,,want to buy.

        • Doug

          Sorry, Texas is too dreary. An intellectual wasteland. That’s why Cruz left for Princeton and Harvard.

          • Herman Vogel

            Really, so the country’s biggest oil producer, having the MOST New Hires of any of the lower 48, No income tax, business friendly, a thriving coastal environment and more millionaires then most states,,,and THAT is an Intellectual Wasteland,,,let me guess,,,You are from California,,,right?

          • Doug

            Florida by way of New Joisey.

          • Doug

            I love the Atlantic Ocean.

    • creeper

      “9/11 Tribute still the best.”

      Yes. Hands down.

  • jime1

    America’s heart in 60 seconds. Brilliant !! IF you don’t get this commercial there is no way to explain it, but I do feel sorry for you if you don’t!

  • Herman Vogel

    Hey, got everyone’s attention with NO half Naked women, vulgar music or language and didn’t make a political statement…That’s why I drink Bud.

    • Washington22

      What an excuse. I love it.

      • Herman Vogel

        Actually, I take into consideration the Character of the Company in how they advertise,,just like the Character of the Actor in a movie,..as a reason to buy in…odd huh…still an old time person.

        • Washington22

          Include me in that scenario. I agree.

          • Herman Vogel

            Not near enough of us around are they. I would be a better world if more people considered Character when accepting things….huh.

    • Doug

      Bud was voted America’s favorite beer several times but some pointed to voting irregularities.

  • Larry Peterson

    Awesome !!!
