Budweiser's new pro-America ad set Twitter ablaze over the weekend as critics derided the company for a misguided attempt at quelling the backlash over Bud Light's endorsement partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney.
Budweiser's latest advertisement, which was released on social media Friday, features one of the brand's famous Clydesdale horses traversing the country from New York City to the Grand Canyon, passing by scenes in the American heartland as a narrator delivers a patriotic message.
The patriotic ad comes as Anheuser-Busch, which owns Budweiser, continues to deal with backlash over a partnership between another one of its popular brands, Bud Light, and Mulvaney. The partnership has caused a significant financial loss for the brand as calls to boycott the beer have spread across the country.

unless and until they fall on their sword and fire the VP....nothing will make this go away...
AB stock continues to rise on flat/slightly down market days. There will be no real punishment. Just a little boycott that will fizzle in the not-so-distant future.
Can’t unring the bell. Particularly when you continue to pay the bell ringer big bucks.

Fire the VP, CEO resigns, Musk buys Bud, takes it private.
Here’s a question; In June will Budweiser and their parent company be putting up their rainbow logo for gay pride month?
Because that’ll be awesome fun if they do!
I don’t know. The new ad seems spot on to me -
LOL! Love those kiddies on youtube!
Step 1 would be to fire the incompetent marketing VP
dayum! that would work
Too late for me. I won’t ever be purchasing AB products again … any of their brands. I don’t give two chits if the CEO is ex-CIA, etc. He allowed this to happen. There needs to be consequences for supporting these abomination sex deniers. AB needs go go out of business. Carefully crafted “patriotic” ads too fool the American public is an insult. They do not share ANYTHING in common with me. The same goes with other woke companies.
It’s pro-America alright. The horse has left the barn...literally!
The notion that a b can just run a patriotic ad and all will be okay is as insulting as when dems wear flag pins ( or astronaut suits) when we suspect a gratuitous gesture is the more likely case.
Many beer containers do look alike, make sure yours does not ridicule traditional family values.
Corporate attempts to rollout “inclusive” ads are really just “exclusive” ads. They are designed to minimize, alienate and marginalize more than 50% of the population through openly embracing 1% of the population, which is mentally ill.
Don’t be gullible.
I would hope someone could find actual Bud Light sales over the last 2-3 weeks, and in particular, how it compares to previous year/quarter figures.
if they are out there, I can’t find them.
History proves you to be mostly correct.
Clydesdales are TransHorses
