Super Bowl 2013 Budweiser Commercials: Where’s The Clydesdales?
COMMENTARY | The Super Bowl 2013 Budweiser commercials have been … interesting so far. Taking a much darker tone, this year’s crop of Super Bowl commercials from Anheuser-Busch are featuring voodoo men and serious-acting rich people partying away in mansions.
So far these Budweiser Super Bowl commercials have been anything but sexy or funny. The one featuring a voodoo man was mostly creepy although the voodoo dolls at the end added a lighthearted moment. But where are the signature Budweiser Clydesdale commercials?
Super Bowl 2013 will be featuring a newly born baby Clydesdale that is only about two weeks old. Using #clydesdales, Budweiser also is asking Twitter followers of @Budweiser and Facebook friends to help name the foal.
According to WCNC, Jeff Knapper, general manager of Clydesdale operations for Budweiser Warm Spring Ranch, says that Chicago, Spunky Brewster, Homie, Tribute, Memory and Boomerang are some of the names suggested so far:
“This newest member of the Budweiser Clydesdale family was 7 days old on the day this part of the Super Bowl commercial was filmed. A star was truly born on Jan. 16.”
The requirements for becoming a Budweiser clydesdales are very strict. According to the Daily Mail, clydesdales that don’t meet these requirements are sold for $5,000 a piece:
“We have very, very stringent requirements to be a Budweiser Clydesdale. They must have a white blaze, a black mane and tail … and four white, stocking feet.”
People on Twitter are using #SuperBowl47 as the major hashtag of the night.
Watching everyone’s tweet reactions to the commercials is better then the game itself… #superbowl47
