Super Bowl 2019: 'Game of Thrones' Gets Surprise Ad with Bud Light

Bud Light is having a Super Bowl Twitter beef with National Corn

Bud Light is having a Super Bowl Twitter beef with National Corn

"We think it is good for the beer industry as a whole to be transparent about what's in your beer", Andy Goeler, vice president of marketing for Bud Light, told USA TODAY. "It's more of a processing aid and is 100% fermented out".

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.

While that might not seem offensive to many consumers and viewers of last night's game between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams, the folks who grow corn didn't like it one bit.

"America's corn farmers are disappointed in you", the association tweeted, adding that they would "love to discuss. the many benefits of corn" with Bud Light.

To create the co-branded spot, Wieden & Kennedy collaborated with HBO's agency, Droga5. It also took a shot at a corn product by noting in its message that MillerCoors beers don't contain high fructose corn syrup - and saying that some Anheuser-Busch products do.

During the conference, Samsung said that it would begin the mass production of foldable Infinity Display in the coming months. Samsung's logo is placed on the back of both devices, and as you can see, the back side of both phones is also curved.

Anheuser-Busch said it "fully supports" corn growers and will continue to invest in the industry.

- Budweiser is getting some backlash from its competitors following one of its Super Bowl ads: A commercial that highlighted the fact that Bud Light does not use corn syrup, while Miller Light and Coors Light do.

Meanwhile, Chief Communications Officer Peter Marino pointed out that, with or without corn syrup, Bud Light is no health drink. "There's lots of different places to get the sugar from". "It's really not true".

Brewers also responded. Samuel Adams beer distanced itself from the ingredient, tweeting, "No corn syrup AND no rice". Watch 'em before they go stale and get pulled from YouTube!
