Budweiser’s 2014 Super Bowl commercial stars puppy, kicks butt (VIDEO)
It's Always Sunny In Detroit ^ | Jan 29, 2014 | posted by By Goergs

Posted on 01/30/2014 2:52:04 PM PST by Daffynition

For their 2014 Super Bowl commercial, Budweiser ad execs spiced it up by adding a yellow lab puppy. The result: awesomeness.

There isn’t much to say for this one other than I don’t have to watch any more Super Bowl commercials on Sunday. I’m convinced that I would come away thinking this one is far and away the best. And, I’d be right.

The Super Bowl is days away, and I'm already sick of Budweiser's new Super Bowl commercial.

That shouldn't even be possible without a time machine.

Cute video, but smart marketing. $4 million production, plus $8 million per 1 minute incident during Super Bowl. Now each network is wrapping a 2+minute package around this commercial during newscasts for $000000 dollars. Plus Facebook + twitter + YouTube, also for $0000000.

Striking gold.

Oh yes. That one is beautiful.. And that skyline sans towers was just so shockingly WRONG back then. A young person not around then would not understand that one now. Wonder if my 16 year old would. He was 4 on 9/11 and he does remember it.

Anyone who could *make* a dog that stays as a 4/mo old Lab puppy forever would be a kerjillionaire overnight.

Well, you have to buy into the fantasy notion that Lab pups would need an *adoption* center.

Clysdales are wonderful as are Percherons

[Pausing to fondly remember FReeper Inge_Cav]

Another breed, not as flashy but with an important role are the Old Guard horses of Arlington National Cemetery.

If anyone is at Arlington, you can stop by their stables....the entrance is into Ft Meyers, near the back of Arlington. It's a bit fussy, these days, to get through the guard at the gate....but if you tell him you're there to see the stable....they'll let you through. The caregivers are so nice to talk with. If you have never seen a Full Honors Funeral ...it's a life-changing experience.

They have a very rigorous program to adopt a retiring caisson horse.

Not a blessed thing. But it’s just as well because their beer is atrocious.

But I still love this ad.

..... puts the story line of the spot before the product it seeks to promote is not revolutionary advertising.

It's selling the *sizzle* not the steak. :)

Do you mean Golden Retriever?, as opposed to *Yellow Lab*? Yes, they are great water dogs.

The dog/s in the commercial are Yalow Labs...not goldens....and I'll bet you a dog-biscuit on that. ;)

I don’t think the Caisson Horses are a particular breed - probably matched more for color than anything else. They seem to be a mix of various saddle horses with some draft blood. Just looking at their photos, seems like they have a lot of Morgan types (stocky but not tall). Unless all the riders are fairly small men, those are not your big draft or hunter types.

Goldens love the water, but they are definitely slower swimmers than Labs or Chessies.

I think all that hair weighs them down.

I respect that. When we decided we were going to *get* a dog again, we went to every Lab rescue place we could find....we even attended adoption events. Not one had a *puppy* as depicted in the commercial.

We found the handlers who brought their *foster* Labs to these events were like *hoarder*s. That’s the only word I can think of to use.....they no more wanted to let go of the *rescues* than a 5 y/o kid with a lollipop. Most of the dogs we spent time with had some very strange *neurosis.*

We ended up at a small breeder....and are pleased [mostly] with our Lab-shedder :0

That 'Dale clearing a three board fence is a startling sight.

No real reason they shouldn't be good jumpers though. I know a lot of big men who hunt on Dale-TB crosses.

They are a mixed bag of breeds. Lovely animals and pampered to the hilt. My 10 y/o GD bonded with one in particular when we visited in April.....we couldn’t *drag* her out of the stable. ;)

Once they learn that cute little trick....what’s to keep them corralled? LOL

They are built for pulling....not jumping, especially in competition.

Oh, there are rescues, and then there are hoarders . . . LiL is the real thing.

Kristie and Drew had a whole LITTER of Lab pups that somebody just dumped. And they've had pregnant female Labs and wound up with pups as well.

But all my Labs are from breeders - small hobby breeders and one big-time field trial breeder.
