Budweiser Commercial 9/11 Tribute



every once in a while there truly is a message behind
great advertising. Here is just such a commercial that
only aired once. I felt it too good just to be a one time
appearance. So I'm posting it here. This is one of
the classiest ads I have seen from Budweiser
and to mix it with 9/11 is absolutely phenomenal.



Some times we get so carried away with the blame
game and the truth and conspiracies that we forget
the things that truly matter. Life !!!



and a great ice cold American Brew

Wrong on so many levels...

1.Corporatism trying to profit off a national tragedy.

2. This is old, old, OLD!

3. Budweiser is not even an American owned company anymore.

Im going to stop there before I say something that gets me banned.

I didn't see it that way. I saw it as a tribute
with the horses bowing their .s and a paw
salute.

Yes, it is. Anhauscher Busch was NOT bought out by foreigner investors
so it is still an American Company as far as I know.

How did people cry over this? This is the most shallow, unemotive piece of crap I've laid eyes upon.

The sheep cry over these type of things, as they graze under the watchful eyes of their corporate masters.

Apparently you don't know how to use the google to do a basic fact check on the subject you're posting about. Fail.

If Budweiser wanted to simply pay tribute to the 9/11 tragedy, why not just make some random wild horses stop and bow...and leave out any and all reference to their product completely?

because it was a sales commercial, thats why...product recognition.

I like Buds advertising, but I see this as simply not letting a good tragedy go to waste...shameless exploitation on peoples intense emotions.

on the surface, it appears classy...no doubt there was a nice high end corporate meeting where they discussed how to best exploit such emotions to further their product without having the frogs looking at the skyline while crying or some other nonsense like that.

I can see the brilliance in the advertising...suprised they pulled it actually.

Yea like Budweiser really needs to put their name up there to sell beer, you people are unbelievable.
regardless if they put their name on there or not,should not take away from the message.

Heaven forbid someone PAYS MONEY to make a commercial honoring those who died?

Even if they didnt put their name up there, you would still find something else to B & moan about.



Those horses were on point

Corporations love people just like you
never question motivations, just enjoy their commercials and defend them as being saintly whenever they use their product to exploit your emotions.

your like a marketing departments wet dream.

yeah i thought the germans owned it now a days not sure on actual percentages but if it is a german company it might have also been them making a refrence to a little known thing that happend right after 911(ill try to find the link) where a us carrier group was going out on deployment not even knowing why attacked them yet and they were passed by a German vessel who im not sure on the correct term but all of them came out on the deck of the ship as they passed the american fleet and unfurled a huge banner that said "we stand with you" which at the time they could have had no idea who or what was behind it so it was a pretty powerfull message

Thats sort of the point...
Advertisment is specifically to promote their product, to drill into your brain you want their crap over their competition, and will ruthlessly use any means necessary to achieve that goal, be it slamming the competitor (moms agree, our product rocks, the others suck), using your personal emotions (only our alarm products will stop your daughter from being raped), or simply to make their name and symbols brainwashed into being a household name (band aids is not adhesive bandages...adhesive bandages are adhesive bandages..band aids just became the best market brand strictly from advertising so much so that people believe adhesive bandages are called band aids properly...bit like thinking computers are called windows)

This is using a tragedy to promote a product to push their product into a patriotic and sacred place in peoples minds.

Would you feel the same if the commercial was a bunch of strippers (conservatively clothed of course, bowing their .s where the horses stood and at the end a strip club logo splashed up? How about Stans Auto Mart, with a car shutting off its lights and ole Stan's logo splashing up...nothing wrong with that

how about every advertisment agency on earth uses 9/11 to promote their brand...all classy of course...you can have the trojan man kneel down and bow to the skyline, etc.

I agree with those who say this ad is in bad taste. It's opportunism at its worst, trying to use tragedy as a means of generating profit. They could have found much better ways of tying their product to patriotism - footage of returning soldiers or something like that.

This attempt however - shameless.
