This year’s Budweiser Super Bowl commercial taps the water works and touts the good deeds Budweiser does. And before you go and make a Budweiser water joke, try to not be a piece of shit for a brief moment. Over 30 years they’ve cranks out nearly 80 million cans of water in response to disasters. They deserve credit for that, whether you drink the King of Beers or not.
Set to Skylar Grey’s rendition of the iconic song “Stand by Me,” custom recorded and performed just for Budweiser, the commercial takes viewers into Budweiser’s Cartersville, Georgia brewery (home of the emergency water program) and features Kevin Fahrenkrog, General Manager of the brewery and an Anheuser-Busch employee for nearly 30 years.
On the heels of the 30th anniversary of the company’s emergency water program, Anheuser-Busch is also announcing a long term commitment for natural disaster relief by adding its Ft. Collins, Colorado brewery to the emergency water program by the end of the year. Adding a second brewery to can and deliver safe, drinking water will increase the speed of response when natural disasters hit.
