Budweiser’s Super Bowl Commercial is Here to Toy With Your Emotions
Is it really the Super Bowl if we don't have sappy and silly commercials? That's half of why I even watch the game if we're being honest. Budweiser is already here to tug on your heartstrings.
Budweiser has revealed their 2022 commercial for the big game, and in true Budweiser commercial style, it tells an emotional story in one minute with absolutely zero words. Check it out below but be warned- it's a doozy:
I definitely did not at all tear up a bit after that. Definitely did not.
The commercial, titled 'A Clydesdale's Journey' is directed by Chloe Zhao, who won Best Director and Best Picture for her work on "Nomadland". It tells the story of an injured horse rallying to recovery with the support of its canine friend. It features the tagline: "In the home of the brave down never means out".
Budweiser advertised in the Super Bowl for 37 years before being absent last year. The bestie Clydesdales and pups are pretty much synonymous with the beer company. You may remember the 2014 ad, when a dog ran away from its new owner to find the horse, with the horse also missing his furry friend and joining together with other horses to get the pup back. Here's that one:
Warm fuzzies, right? Where do they find these adorable animal actors? Did you see that sweet puppy's sad eyes??
In the 2015 commercial, the horse saves the dog from a wolf after the dog has been lost. Not one word ever spoken between the two animals but clearly the strongest of friendships.
Budweiser will make you cry into your loaded nachos and the Los Angeles Rams will take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI on Feb. 13th at 6:30 p.m.
