Bud Light, Game of Thrones Have Fiery Crossover in Super Bowl Commercial

Share

The olive branch comes after Bud Light released multiple commercials during the Super Bowl touting the fact that Bud Light is sweetened with rice rather than corn syrup.

It was turning out to be another silly Bud Light ad, where the King and Queen were enjoying a couple of beers and about to watch the Bud Knight triumph during a joust. The message provoked quick responses on Twitter.

Ross said Anheuser-Busch officials reached out to the National Corn Growers Association before the end of Sunday's football game and hopes the two groups can have a positive conversation. He said the Bud Light ad seems to play into the unhealthy image of high-fructose corn syrup. "Our office is right down the road!"

To cap off their anger toward Bud Light, National Corn retweeted a tweet suggesting you should not make them angry. Bud Light used the "brewed with no corn syrup" on its ads for the night.

MillerCoors tweeted an image comparing Bud Light with Miller Lite on calories and carbohydrates, followed minutes later by a tweet from Adam Collins, vice president of communications and community affairs.

"I am disappointed that Bud Light chose to denigrate corn", Mark Recker, chair of Iowa Corn, said.

The Washington Post has debuted its first Super Bowl commercial, highlighting the unsafe work done by journalists around the world. "Miller Lite has been gaining share for 17 straight quarters & someone's feeling the heat!"

Harry Schuhmacher, editor of Beer Business Daily, said the fermenting aids used to make lighter beers might result in slight differences in taste, but they generally serve the same objective.

The spots trolled rival brands that use corn syrup. "Thanks @MillerLightand @CoorsLite for supporting our industry".
