All the money they wasted on this ad that could have actually helped those poor immigrants/refugees. Such a shame.



The commercial itself cost $14mil.

They don't need to run politically charged ads to get people to drink their beer.

They don't want lumbersexual hipsters to ruin the brand anyway.

Unsure why big business is getting so involved with politics lately. Seems to be a dumb business move in my opinion.

The ad has started a conversation. Sometimes that's all that's needed to chill things out. And a little positive chill would be a good thing right about now.

they merged with Miller last year and now produce every single beer you should never consume.


Just curious, any reason why? Or just not a fan of their beer?

Because it's vile, mass produced industrial swill.

And I'm a beer snob because I am.

Maybe, I was just thinking that the country is pretty divided politically and immigration is a big topic right now. So for those reasons, they are risking a decent percentage of potential customers based on pushing a political message.

I think that's one of the better beer adverts i've seen.

Not for the overt political nature of it, but just the fact that the rest are so damn weird.

I don't drink though so my opinion is invalid either way.

The Belgians do what they do very well. But their variety is pretty limited. Your average beer drinker probably couldn't tell the difference between a LaChouffe and a Delirium.

There's a reason the US is leading the way in craft brewing. And why you're seeing American breweries picking up a larger portion of the market in Europe.

I think it's great that there's some companies standing up to the administration.

Sorry, I have it on good authority that this is the original Bud.

Very true. Many European breweries are restricted by antiquated production laws in regards ingredients. Just like we taught those stuffy Continentals to drink cocktails we'll teach them how to make better beer.

Hey Chris, you want to tell me that I can't conduct an international conversation in an international forum, perhaps you need to find an echo chamber that better suits your kind of discourse.
Communism? Dude, I was just kidding about that "Great Pink North" stuff. Anyway, it's not our guy busy sniffin' Russian butt.
And we like to spell it "Canada, eh? Anything else?
Mmmm...maple syrup...

But it pretty well sucks, too. Try a Cigar City Jai Alai India Pale Ale. That's American beer with a clue.

I know that you think that is a real mic-dropper but it's not to anyone with half a clue about American history and politics. Did I say Democrats? Nope.

Abolition, women's suffrage, labor (ending child labor, establishing a standard work week, overtime, etc), civil rights, etc up through the fight for same sex marriage were all movements driven by progressive liberals and fought by conservative traditionalists.

In addition to that, you can thank liberal progressives for the free speech we all enjoy. Conservatives fought that tooth and nail too. From the Comstock Law (aka Comstock Act) for the "Suppression of Trade in, and Circulation of, Obscene Literature and Articles of Immoral Use" (which includes contraceptives, something "conservatives" still rail against) to the prosecution of communists and socialists under Sedition Act of 1918 during the Red Scares to the persecution of pornographers like Larry Flynt. (which is but one of the reasons it upsets me as a liberal progressive to see leftist campus riots to shutdown Milo)

If you'd care to refute in detail anything I said, by all means tell me how I'm wrong.

I liked it. I seems more Origin story than political statement, though the statement is surely there.

you do know that the Budweiser Brand is now merged into the International Conglomerate In-Bev, Inc

view the tailored Ad as a 'position' the Globalist Ideology at InBev have: Anheuser-Busch InBev World’s largest brewer

I agree, they usually have some of the better commercials.

None of it makes me want to drink their crap, but the commercials can certainly be compelling.
