AOL- Budweiser’s Super Bowl ad has the beer brand in hot water. On Tuesday, Budweiser released its Super Bowl ad online. The 60-second commercial follows Anheuser-Busch co-founder Adolphus Busch’s journey to the US in the mid-1800s, highlighting Busch’s struggles and the prejudice the German immigrant encountered. “You’re not wanted here, go back home!” one American yells at Busch as he arrives in New Orleans. Budweiser has said the commercial was not intended to be a political statement. However, many people aren’t buying it. “I drank your product for 30 years and I will no longer drink it you liberal s— heads,” reads one such comment on Budweiser’s Facebook page.
Most of the time, I don’t care about people’s political opinions. Why talk about politics when you can talk to Glenny Balls about horse racing or chips and queso? You never want to disagree with people you love, and it doesn’t matter if it’s what you agree with or not. For example, I’d be pretty crushed if I found out an America hero like Guy Fieri had different views than me.
That being said, you can’t just go and boycott Budweiser, aka AMERICA, because of a commercial. You can’t boycott Adolphus Busch. I love Adolphus Busch. Adolphus Busch is like my family. And if you get mad at a hero such as Mr. Adolphus Busch because of a commercial, you are nothing more than a jabroni. A grade A jabroni. All he has done is brought happiness into the world. Think about Glenny Balls again- his closet consists of a billion random throwback jerseys and Budweiser shirts. That’s it. He’s like the Doug Funnie of 1993 NHL jerseys and Bud shirts. If he could hop into a time machine, he would punch the “You’re not wanted here, go back home!” guy straight in the jaw.
So if you’re going to stop drinking Budweiser over this you should go jump off the Gateway Arch. Whether you agree with the company’s views or not, Bud is a beautiful American Lager with a 5.0 ABV that will get you drunk and happier than a clam on the 4th of July, and there’s not much better than that.
