Bud Light Debuts 'Game of Thrones' Crossover Ad During Super Bowl 2019

A medieval jouster adorned in a blue Bud Light suit was ousted by another who appeared to be "The Mountain", one of the characters from Thrones.

The ad, which served as both a promo for GoT's final season and *major* brand alignment for the preferred beverage of frat boys everywhere, cost a whopping $20 million, according to the Wall Street Journal. Miller Lite tweeted a message thanking Bud Light for including them in their first Super Bowl ad in over 20 years but pointing out the nutritional differences between the two beers.

The Bud Light commercial starts out with a king and queen at a jousting event enjoying Bud Lights, while they and crowds of spectators cheer on the "Bud Knight", who faces a mysterious opponent.

At the end of the ad, Bud Light is sure to remind viewers that "Bud Light is brewed with no corn syrup". Miller Light had already received its shipment.

Brewers also responded. Samuel Adams beer distanced itself from the ingredient, tweeting, "No corn syrup AND no rice". Anheuser-Busch did reach out to the National Corn Growers Association in light of its criticism, in an effort to make amends, Neil Caskey, the group's chief communications officer, told CNN.

Before this incident, yet another student from Telangana was detained by the United States police for more than 14 hours. These eight recruiters had provided the required fake documents to 600 students to illegally stay in the US.

To create the co-branded spot, Wieden & Kennedy collaborated with HBO's agency, Droga5.

Meanwhile, farmer Kevin Ross posted a video of himself pouring a can of beer down a sink, saying: "Bud Light, you're not standing with corn farmers". "Our office is right down the road!"

Miller Lite shot back with a fiery "we have more taste and half the carbs".

The lobby for America's corn growers said it was "disappointed" with Budweiser.

Yet many sports fans, during a game played with just a single touchdown scored, still found the ad pithy and humorous.
