A-B Continues Big Game Dominance
By George Anderson
When the discussion of dynasties comes up, there is always a debate often along generational lines on who was the strongest: Lombardi’s Packers, Chuck Noll’s Steelers, the Niners under Bill Walsh and George Seifert and, more recently, Bill Belichek and the Patriots.
While all these teams deserve to be considered in any discussion of the greatest dynasties of all time, none of them can match the dominance of the Busch family’s Clydesdales and Bud and Bud Light beer lineup.
For the eighth consecutive year, Anheuser-Busch has taken home the trophy for USA Today’s Annual Ad Meter competition during the Super Bowl. To see the commercials that
played during the big game, go
The most valuable commercial in this year’s lineup from the brewer was a spot right out of the Three Stooges or Abbot and Costello. The commercial included a refrigerator in front of a revolving wall that would move when guests went to grab a beer. Of course, the Bud packed refrigerator would end up in the neighboring apartment much to the delight of those on the other side of the wall.
Bud and Bud Light commercials were dominant with six of the top 10 spots. Others making the list included Fedex and Sierra Mist. Ameriquest had two spots in the top 10.
