I’ve been looking around trying to find Super Bowl XVIII beer commercials, but as usual, none have surfaced. All the buzz this year comes from SABMiller and their plan for a one-second commercial.
My one second Miller commercial suggestion: Bu–rrrrrrp! You can see Miller’s promos here.
While chasing Super Bowl Bud Light commercials, I found a batch on YouTube, apparently put up by Anheuser-Busch. Their claim: too risky, too offensive for TV. Here’s one.
Final comment. Either they colorize the beer or they use a beer that’s not Bud Light. The Bud Light from the bottle’s the color of straw, but in the commercial, it’s a lovely, almost amber color. What’s going on here.?
