Yeah, so that title is a total LIE because THERE WERE NO HORSE COMMERCIALS in the Super Bowl last night. Every year since the start of this blog I make sure to share the videos of each horsey commercial the morning after. This morning I am still full from all the yummy junk food, but I am even more annoyed at the lack of horses than I was last night.
Normally I can count on Budwiser to put up several Clydesdale centered ads. I might not love them all, but at least they there there. This year the only equines I saw were in a single Budwiser western ad and the animated equine the kids from South Park were riding in on. I mean really…that just sucks. I would think that I could count on horses and the Super Bowl always being paired, but I gets not.
Do the advertising agencies really think that having them running pulling a beer wagon is enough? That was like all of 5 seconds worth! More proof that InBev (the corporation who owns Budwiser) is going to get rid of those beautiful draft horses someday soon. They are not using the one animal that is synonymous with their beer in their commercials, which is especially crazy since the Super Bowl commercials that win them awards are the ones staring the Clydesdale’s. I guess the only good thing is that when InBev decides to get rid of their beautiful horses I will get the chance to own my very own beautifully bred Clydesdale. I am so angry right now. What do you all think? Do you look forward to the Clydesdale ads all year like I do or do you just not care that much?
