Sweet horses, Fleetwood Mac, winner. Even for someone who hates beer, who gets a little queasy when there's even a hint of hops, the best Super Bowl ad was the Budweiser creation entitled "Brotherhood."
The company has used the iconic Clydesdale horse before but not with such a sweet-looking foal. The baby Clydesdale used in the ad was born on Jan. 16. There was an entire story told. A man breeds and raises the baby and then has to wave goodbye when it's time for the tot to leave home.
But he gets to say hello again too, and that's what we all do. We say hello, we say goodbye, we say hello again. Wait, that’s a different song from a different band. Hello, little guy; goodbye, little guy; come home soon, big guy.
