Budweiser's Super Bowl Commercial About a Lost Puppy Is Guaranteed to Make You Cry
By John Boone
FOOTBALL! THE BIG GAME! BEER! AND TEARS! SO MANY TEARS!
It’s become a Super Bowl tradition as important as wearing your jersey inside out, spinning around three times after every commercial break, and keeping the TV remote at exactly 45 degrees or your team won't score: A Budweiser commercial so sweet that you’re left sobbing into your plate of chicken wings. Remember last year, when we met the adorable golden retriever puppy who befriended one of Bud’s Clydesdales? He’s back!
For a minute, it didn’t seem like he would be. A report claimed that Anheuser-Busch was retiring the Clydesdales in favor of Jay Z and zombies. Budweiser denied it, and it’s true: The puppy and horse are still best friends!
This time, a mishap finds the puppy lost in the big world and Homeward Bound-ing it back to the farm while a melancholy cover of “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” plays. Hijinx and heartwarming moments ensue, and that’s not even the part that will make you cry.
