I enjoyed researching and finding the right ads/commercials for Eukanuba, so I think I’ll make a habit of it…at least for now. I have chosen the company, Budweiser. Now, I do not actually like the beer itself, but I love the ads. (See my Top 12 Super Bowl Ads-you will find a couple of Budweiser ads on there.) One of the campaigns I like is the “Patriotic” campaign. I could not find any commercials to go with it, but I did find this great article about it. I hope you will read it. I will only mention a couple of campaigns here, starting with the most popular, the “Whassup” campaign based off the short film, True. Here is another blog post that explains the “Whassup” campaign.
Here are the top “Whassup” commercials:
This is one of the first commercials aired in 1999.
Read the “about” section under the video. It mentions the campaign in general and that it ran from 1999-2002.
This is the most popular “Whassup” commercial.
And, lastly, here is another one that is also one of the greats.
Another campaign, and one of my favorites, involved the Clydesdales. I don’t know about you, but I just love those horses. The commercials they made with them are incredible! Here are a few of my favorites:
This one is entitled, “Family” and it is from the 2006 Super Bowl:
This one has the donkey in it who dreams of being a Budweiser Clydesdale.
And this one is one of my favorites because it tributes 9/11.
Of course, I already mentioned a couple of other ones in my previous blog post about my Top 12 Super Bowl commercials. Those 2 are favorites of mine, titled “Hank the Clydesdale” and “Return of the King”. I refer back to it in the beginning of this blog post.
If you want to see print advertisements, their website has a legacy page with them on there dating back to the 1890s.
Here are a few of them:
They also have the organizations they support as well!
Hope you enjoy these ad campaigns. Check back for more!
