Over the years, they've had some hilarious commercials for Bud and Bud Light. I wonder if the marketing will be as good post-InBev? What are your favorite old or current A-B ads? Some of my favorites:

-The "Real Men of Genius" radio ads
-The "Yes I Am!" guy. "I'm Mr. Gal-ee-wee-kits." "You're Dr Galazkiewicz?" "Yes I am!"
-The frog and chameleon commercials
-The Bud Ice penguin

Doo-Bee-Doo-Bee-Dooooo

I remember in High School, we used to get Bud Ice (around 96-98) because it had the NHL shield on the case...and that was the sole reason. :lol:

I like the BUD commercial where the soldiers walk thru the airport and get a "STANDING O". My second choice is the clydesdales playing footall -- especially where they "usually go for two"... classic!

Remember when they were called "Real American Heroes"? That had to be before 9/11.

I remember hearing that version around 99-00. I'd always listen to the Hawks postgame show after every home game while leaving the United Center, and they played one of those for every commercial break.

I still have a bunch of them on my computer, I think. As Rohan said, AB promptly changed the name of the campaign after 9/11.

I can't believe I forgot to mention some of these! I even had one of the bubble players as my avatar for a while.



He's behind the net again! Get him!


Punk!


And the Hockey Falls commercials that Dooger came from:
