Who doesn’t like beer? Who doesn’t like soldiers? Why not put them together in a beer commercial? A new Budweiser beer commercial will have a lot of people asking, wait a minute, why did that soldier call that guy first and not his mom, girlfriend, or sister to tell them he was coming home? And why is that guy he called the person making all the coming home party arrangements? And why is that guy with the facial hair that is just too conveniently in between scruffy and styled the first person that the soldier gives a big hug?
Well, at least two blogs are askin’ but ain’t nobody tellin’. At least not yet. It’s a clever, sweet and even sentimental 60 seconds of video no matter what it’s supposed to be, even though the real meaning is clearly “buy our beer.”
