    It's good to have them back and hopefully they'll be featured, rather than just just used as an incidental prop for the commercial.

    Still remember watching the original "Here Comes The King" commercial on a B&W TV set with a Vertical Hold control that was a *bleep* to keep adjusted so the picture wouldn't roll. They used it a lot, and it's never lost its appeal.

    I have never seen the lead horses canter before, I look forward to seeing the rest of it.

    Saw them at the Danbury Fair in Ct when I was a kid--and I go on Medicare in March, so 50-55 years ago?
    I remember some kind of track, maybe half-mile around, and the announcer saying the hitch was going to canter in harness, very unusual for horses to canter in harness. They trotted around the turn, then transitioned to canter and cantered, galloped really, all the way down the homestretch! Awesome! Took all the way around to the backstretch to come back to a walk.

    Is that Liza Minelli singing in that video?

    I only get their beer to support the horses! Guess this means I'll be able to buy something I actually like to drink.

    Saw it. Ok commercial, but they have done better I think. I was actually a little disappointed, I wanted to see more horses and cute comedy.

    Don't get me wrong, nice all American commercial, but I miss their old style.....
