Isn't Missy Elliott from like 2003?
1997. I was a little off.
Just found out my cousin was in the halftime show, one of the peeps holding a balloon or whatever.
Closest the Sharks will ever get to a championship round, amirite?
^^the yootoob sucks. Needs some busted flatscreens and projectile vomiting.
Commercial getting pantsed all over the internet today, including some "Worst of..." lists. Seriously, what a faggy, dipshit comercial which I'm sure hit the damn bullseye with its asshole target market.
I would imagine there's a much larger market who just drinks beer to unwind or catch a buzz or (gasp) get drunk. Call them what you will, use the gif or tag of your choice, but there's nothing wrong with just drinking some easy drinking macros on a Friday after work.
I've said this before, there's nothing wrong with liking a better product. It's the whole culture surrounding it.
Such a non-Loftonian perspective on the whole thing. Tell me more about how people who drink Budweiser (5.0 ABV) love "unwinding," "catching a buzz" or (gasp) getting drunk more than a group of people who spend a substantially greater amount of time seeking out and/or drinking beers that get the average person far more plowed with far less effort.
The thing is, you will not find a craft beer drinker who doesn't agree that macros definitely have their time and place (I went to a bachelor party last weekend, case of Old Style in tow). Ya see, they agree with that because they actually like beer, unlike the mouth-breathing morons that the commercial last night was catered towards. Which I guess is you (shockingly), since the commercial was substantively retarded, but got its cheap digs in on the hipster/ mustachioed beer snob "culture" () to make the world of dipshit, Kenny Chesney lovin', Bud-swillin' ignoramuses feel ok about not knowing anything about yet another thing.
Holy fuck, do you not hear yourself?
I'm not getting much of a "called us names!" vibe from the commercial. I mean, that clearly was its intent, but I haven't seen anybody actually offended by that aspect. The blowback I've seen is from people who are knowledgeable about the industry and, therefore, scoff at the notion that there is an All American company called "Budweiser" that makes naught but yellow fizzy beer on the banks of the Mississippi for their fellow Americans. For example:
Also, a few folks have laughed at the "Pumpkin Peach Ale" remark, because In-Bev recently bought a craft brewery that produced that specific style of beer. They now own quite a few labels that don't say "Bud" on them:
I do hear myself. And while it took me some time to say it, the point was
I've seen some social media reactions of people taking it personally, but those are the people deserving of whatever javelins Bud attempted to hurl. I also want to add that actual beer geeks are FAR fucking nerdier than the hipster asshats shown in the commercial. Missed opportunity for Bud.
But yes, the commercial was most notable for how fucking absurd and hypocritical its premise was (the article I posted above breaks it down pretty well, so no need to repeat it here) and primarily how bitchy it came across in light of the well-documented reality that Bud has lost a shitton of market share to craft in recent years.
The culture around it? What, you mean making and appreciating great products? The only reason you would find that annoying is because you have no fucking taste and it makes you feel insecure.
People who drink craft beer are worse than people who eat vegetables with their meat.
First Super Bowl where I drank too much during the game. Missed some of the commercials including Budweiser and the Nationwide one that caused that meme. Fuck Pete Carroll.
My daughter loved it.
Just saw the commercial. It didn't seem especially out of touch or alienating. I just didn't cringe watching it, I don't know. I live in the urban liberal bubble so Budweiser is another planet to me. Who gives a shit? Drink bourbon and shut the fuck up.
Those fucking sharks tho
buzzfeed is the fucking blurst
The first one is funny if meta
Sounded like she was really singing, or it was a recording of her singing live and really well. She killed it
What about that kelly clarkson tho
Would I do butt stuff with her? If not, who cares?
Best produced halftime show in the last 30 years according to some.
I guess the ad reached its target audience
But what if you just want to unwind, catch a buzz or (gasp) get drunk without being a about batches and distilleries?
all i ever want to do is sit around a bonfire with country music wearing jeans and a bud in my hand
and a beer in my other hand
Baby you're a song, You make me wanna roll my windows back and CRUISEEEE
I should be the target demographic for that bud commercial. But those gay gentlemen forgot they weren't miller
MillerCoors took this opportunity to call Lofton a gay gentleman too
Unwinding!! Gettin' buzzed/ (gasp) drunk!!!
Fucking summer shandy aka mikes brown lemonade
This is pretty much it. Only the biggest asshole beer nerd shithead would claim they never drink a macro. I probably drink just as much macro as I do craft, just because it's cheap. But like you said the ad just sends mixed messages. You can get bombed faster drinking crafts because of the higher ABV.
And just like everyone else points out, it's just silly for Bud to pretend they are some hard working awesome American beer we should support because God Bless America and shit except anyone with a brain knows it's become a Belgium-Brazilian-American global corporation headquartered in Belgium and right now its top 2 people in charge are a Brazilian and a Dutch dude.
It just didn't make any sense for Bud to run that ad from a business standpoint either. Plenty of people who would purchase a macro are probably turned off by the commercial. So next time they need a cheap case to bring somewhere, why support Bud and their whiny ads when you can buy Coors or Miller?
As long as you don't wear a beard and a flannel and smell the beer
I have to be in just the right mood to drink low alcohol shit. Usually doing that will leave me sexually frustrated. There are those certain days when you're only drinking Miller Lite and your patient enough to wait for the buzz but you can't beat it. Much more energy from that than sipping whiskey
It's all in your head though. I should just stick to the Miller light and Guinnness. Pounding whiskey destroys your life!
You think they'll abandon the roman numeral convention next year because a lot of people will be confused by Super Bowl L?
Anybody confused by Superbowl L probably was confused by Superbowl exlicks.
IIRC they announced 2 years ago they were going with "50" for just one year, then it'll be back to stupid pompous Roman bullshit "LI"
