    Default What a Lousy 2011 Budweiser Super Bowl Commercial

    Hey Bud, it's about the horses, not dorky people!

    Kind of hoping for another one.....glancing at the Clydes isn't showcasing them!!!
    To be loved by a horse should fill us with awe, for we hath not deserved it.

    Well I knew you'd post the link. Just tuned in for the halftime show after a busy, busy day.

    Definitely not one of my favourites!

    Not an American company any more...perhaps they just don't understand the history of the company and how their horses are a big part of it.

    The owners of Bud went with a new commercial company this year. They wanted to go in a "different direction". I'd say they went right down a flushing toilet.

    I'm also very disappointed. It was a dumb commercial even if you were watching for the horses.

    Well, you can "dislike" it on the Bud site, and, when it directs people to comment on the YouTube site, let's tell them why we thought it stunk.

    Lots of horses in the commercials this year, though. (Cowboys vs. Aliens???!)

    Boooooooo!
    And they could have made a neato commercial, with the BudClydes pulling the stagecoach...Maybe the robbers could have been riding Clydes, too?

    I'm glad I waited to see it on the Internet and watched bull riding instead. I'd hate to think I'd waded through four hours of football and a lousy halftime show (not to mention a flubbed National Anthem) to see some wussy-arsed cowboy trying to sing.

    InBev blew it big time.

    In Bev has sold the theme parks. I think they WANT to distance themselves from the old company culture
