Corn farmers clapped back at Bud Light following a commercial in which the beer boasted about not using corn syrup.
Bud Light ran a medieval-themed commercial during the first half of Super Bowl LIII slamming Miller Lite and Coors Light for including corn syrup in their beers. And in Bud Light's Game of Thrones commercial, you lose, get your skull cracked and then get burnt by a dragon.
The New England Patriots set a few records last night when they snatched the Super Bowl from the Los Angeles Rams: they tied for most Bowls won, at six; and Tom Brady netted the most Super Bowl wins ever for a player. We were more interested in the big-budget ads that auto companies showed - and didn't show - this year. The company will introduce icons to its US Bud Light packaging to highlight that it uses no preservatives, no corn syrup and no artificial flavours. "Bud Light's Super Bowl commercials are only meant to point out a key difference in Bud Light from some other light beers", it said in a statement.
Farmer Kevin Ross posted a video of him pouring a can of beer down a sink, saying: "Bud Light, you're not standing with corn farmers".
"We think Bud Light, as the leader in this category, needs to make a bold move", Goeler said, per AdWeek. Trump Jr. tweeted on February 3 after the ad ran.
The Bud Light crew goes full "Lord of the Kings" and travels across the land to deliver the corn syrup to Miller Lite.
And MillerCoors responded with a comparison of its own. "We're also proud that none of our products include any high fructose corn syrup, while a number of Anheuser-Busch products do".
"How is Bud Light now producing more Game of Thrones content than George R.R. Martin?"
