Since Sunday, there has been much discussion about is what was the best commercial that aired during this year’s Super Bowl. While all of these much discussed commercials might have been good (at best), we believe that none of them hold a candle to this one –
Pat & Frank’s
All-time Favorite Super Bowl Commercial
Budweiser’s 9/11 tribute featuring their iconic Clydesdales passing the Statue of Liberty, crossing the Brooklyn Bridge, and finally pausing and bowing in a park overlooking the New York City skyline, without the twin World Trade Center Towers – which were destroyed in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. This big game ad was originally broadcast just once during Super Bowl XXXV in 2002 the 2011. It only aired once, as the company didn’t want to benefit from it financially; it just wanted to acknowledge the tragic events of 9/11.)
Last year, on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Budweiser aired a remake of the commercial. (The original had snow in the ground, this one features blue sky and bright green grass).
We love how they only aired this once after 9/11. They didnt do it for the money. They did it out of respect.
