Bud Light touches nerve with corn syrup Super Bowl ads

Washington Post to air Super Bowl ad showcasing reporters' plight The Bud Light Knight Gets Murdered In Game Of Thrones Super Bowl Ad
Jennie Wade | 05 February, 2019, 05:28

"Bud Light's Super Bowl commercials are only meant to point out a key difference in Bud Light from some other light beers".

"Bud Light, you're not standing with corn farmers".

The other beers' marketing departments also didn't miss a chance to get their name out there and tout their own "high-quality, great-tasting beers".

To cap off their anger toward Bud Light, National Corn retweeted a tweet suggesting you should not make them angry.

The debacle started when Bud Light's Super Bowl ad on Sunday showed a large barrel of the corn syrup being delivered by mistake to the Bud Light castle.

The ad was meant to be amusing but the National Corn Growers Association, or NCGA, wasn't laughing.

What appeared to be another typical and wildly popular Bud Light commercial took a massive turn when The Mountain from HBO's "Game of Thrones" killed the infamous Bud Knight - who is somehow live-tweeting from the dead? The statement says it's up to consumers "to decide what beer is right for them".

Dirk Nowitzki, Dwyane Wade added to '19 All-Star roster
In the All-Star games that he has played in, Wade has averaged 16.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game. Wade is now on a farewell tour around the league as he will retire after the season.

The Anheuser-Busch InBev brand and Wieden & Kennedy used the first long ad to consummate a two-step messaging process that it began in mid January, by announcing that it would break new ground in the beer industry by adding a prominent ingredients label to its outer packaging. Sanderson said there are more than 300,000 corn farmers in the United States, and he wants to set the record straight when it comes to corn syrup.

Bud Light claims it uses rice, not corn syrup, in its beer. Interestingly, none of our products use High Fructose Corn Syrup, yet several of ABI's do.

"This attack especially hits home at a time when farmers are hurting due to challenging economic conditions".

Corn syrup has gotten a bad rap amid the national obesity epidemic.

"Bud Light uses rice to aid fermentation".

"It was a marketing ploy, I get that".
