Clydesdale Watch 2015


Note: This is day 21 of my 30-day blogging challenge. What the heck is a 30-day blogging challenge? Read about it here.

As I mentioned in
last week’s news roundup, Budweiser’s Super Bowl ad appears to be
featuring not only the Clydesdales, but their puppy friend from last
year’s adorable, top ranked commercial.

Oh, let’s just watch it again, shall we?

2013 brought us
Brotherhood, in which a horse breeder (officially The Rancher) and his talented Clydesdale are
separated, then reunited in a moment that always seems to air right when someone nearby is cutting onions or something, because my eyes just start watering like crazy. Every time. So crazy.

2014 brought us Puppy Love, in which a
horse in the same rancher’s barn befriends a puppy from the
neighboring, uh…dog breeder? The sign says “Puppy Adoption,”
but what does that even mean? Anyhow, the end is open to
interpretation, but suffice it to say, thanks to the power of horse/dog friendship, the puppy stayed at
the farm instead of being sold adopted to the guy with the sunglasses
who doesn’t look like he’d be a good puppy owner anyway.

Now, in 2015, the rancher, the horses, and the puppy (shouldn’t he be a dog by now?)
are back, but that rascally puppy has gotten lost. You can help
find him through Budweiser’s new social media campaign. I’ll let the rancher explain:

I do not want Super
Bowl tickets. Can I just have the puppy?

We’re still
awaiting the release of the official ad, which will likely appear on
YouTube (and here on HorseChannel, of course) a few days before that
big ol’ football game. Stay tuned.

  1. Please bring back the Clydesdale. They are what makes the Superbowl commercials. If you find the puppy, bring her back too. Love them both.

  2. I own a Clydesdale and I can tell you first hand that they are very smart and extremely loving. The only reason I watch the super bowl is to see the Bud commercial’s with the horses and now the puppy:)

  3. It will always be the Clydesdale’s that keep me up so late watching the Superbowl. Adding the puppy to this, is something I won’t miss.

  4. I don’t watch foot ball and don’t even drink But I have always loved the Clydesdale’s in their Commercials and will be waiting till the next one comes out They are just so priceless I could not emadgen watching their commercials without them in it
