Awww.  Thumbs Up
 
I'd like to know if there's any story behind this one.  That is, was that guy really the owner, or was it all just acting?

I still want them to bring back the frogs. With the game in New Orleans, surronded by swamps, this could actually be an interesting tie-in sort of thing.

Not bad. And I much prefer Stevie singing for a horse than for a horse's patoot years ago.

Budweiser's ads are the highlight of the Super Bowl, for me. They delivered again :)

OMG!  I teared up. Even big, burly men across America teared up/cried.
 
I think they filmed the first part at the Busch farm/Clydesdale farm just outside of St. Louis.  I've been there and it is great--the baby clydesdales are really cute; long, gangly legs with those big 'ol feet.

^Agreed. I live in Merrimack, NH - where we have a Budweiser plant and where they stable one of the Clydesdale hitches. I think the other hitch is in St. Louis, MO. But anyway - the brewery and the ground are free to tour and walk around and you can go to the stables and see the horses. I remember a couple of summers ago they had two baby Clydesdales and they were SO damn adorable. And let me say, unsurprisingly, those horses are treated like kings. They are unbelievably beautiful and are just so amazing to see in person. Last summer, they even had the Budweiser dalmatian roaming around the stables. Super sweet dog. Would wander up to you and just let you scratch him under the ears and chin. He was exhausted after coming in from the fields with the horses. :)

Loved this one! I was waiting for a Clydesdale commercial and it didn't disappoint.

The downside was that hearing Stevie just reinforced how mediocre Beyonce is.

Yeah.  What ever happened to subtlety?  Seems every superstar singer nowadays thinks she has to put every last bit of emotion into every last song.  It could be Frosty the Snowman, and they'd find some way to turn it into a heart-wrenching drama.

I don't know, but it's certainly tiresome. Not to mention the melisma, aka "urban yodeling." I'd be impressed if more young female singers actually held a note. That's actually something Adele does a little better than her peers, although I'm kind of tired of her. She's pretty dramatic, too.

Between Stevie Nicks and the Rolling Stones (and, hell, the Partridge Family), the music in the commercials put the Halftime show to shame!

This one's gotten extra coverage on the local news, as the guy in the commercial is from the Houston area.  Humble's about 20 miles north/northeast of Downtown.

I didn't watch the commercial whenever it aired during the Super Bowl, but got a chance to see it yesterday.  It's very touching Tongue It reminded me of the story of the lion who was released into the wild after being raised by 2 guys, then reunited with him a year or so later.  Much to the surprise of 'experts,' the lion remembered them and was just as happy to see them as they were to see him.

Nightline did a story on the Clydesdales and their breeder and mentioned the slight biographical origins of the ad.  Interesting story all around.  http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/video/super-bowls-baby-clydesdale-budweiser-story-1..." rel="nofollow - http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/video/super-bowls-baby-clydesdale-budweiser-story-1...

Thanks for the background stories, insanity and jero.
 
And yes, it immediately reminded me of the lion story, too.

Great commercial, but I would still rather drink a Warstiener Dunkel or a Yuengling any day of the week.
