These guys are so good. I don’t drink beer at all, but if I did, it would be Bud.

Rats! I going to have to go to another computer to watch this which means that I’ll have to crawl upstairs on my replaced knee! But, I’ll do it because the Budweiser ads are always outstanding.

I wish that I could figure out how to upgrade the flash drive on this laptop. My many attempts have come to naught.

I’ve always liked Budweisers ads, can’t stand their product. It’s the triumph of style over substance.

Yeah. And what the heck does that ad have to do with beer?!?

I mean, if they could show the horse and the puppy enjoying some Bud and then stumble around drunk, well THEN I could see some ad effectiveness….

Very nice. My wife likes the Clydesdales.

However sweet appearing, though, that pup is a dangerous, vicious mutt. Had such a confrontation occurred, the local PD would show up and pop the pup.

Here's Free Republic linkback to a South American advertisement for a diet soft drink that includes an uplifting (and for some, memory jogging) pro-life message.

You may think it’s crappy beer but Bud Light and Budweiser are 1 and 2 in the good ole USofA so they must do something right.

Obviously what they’re doing right is marketing!

I have to admit it did give me a tear. Too cute.

They have the best commercials. It’s a shame their beer is not good.

I know you were tongue in cheek....but I still want to point out that the geniuses that do this beer company's ads tied the name of the beer into the relationship between dog and horse in the ending text...."Best Buds".

Great idea, great photography, great "plot", great brand-name promotion, great ad.

Good doggie!

I know!! Ugh, beer. After travels to England, I’m forever spoiled on what is good beer. Coming home after a wonderful beyond description pub crawl, all our beers tasted like water!

But please don’t think all we did was pub crawl! Well okay about 80%. We also got in some great travel and enjoyed history as well as the magnificent architecture.

I hope to go to England one day mainly because of all of the history. But the beer will certainly be a treat for me.

We went to Ireland in 1996. The Guinness was pure magic! It does not taste the same here. :(

Omgosh, our kids want to go to Ireland with us. In fact, it would be their dream of a lifetime. You’ve given me hope and curiosity!!

You will absolutely love England. We’ve been from London to Poole together. Oh my gosh, please see St. Pauls. For me, The Tower and Westminster Abbey were the top of my list for this area, but St. Pauls just blew them away. Also if you go to London, make sure you see the little out of the way places, off the beaten track so to speak.

We also enjoyed The British Museum along with Hampton Court Palace which is impossible to see in one day! Well you could do it but you’d end up cheating yourself. Did you know that you can also stay there? Please keep in touch and let me know if and when you get to go.
