Budweiser, which commands the Super Bowl almost as much as the NFL, has had some of the most memorable, even beloved, ads in telecast history. Many of them -- most of them -- have nothing to do with beer, unless there's something subliminal about beer consumption and Clydesdales.
But Wednesday morning, Budweiser pre-released one of its game ads: Think puppy. And a puppy so cute, so adorable, that a hundred million viewers will instantly go "awwwww" Sunday night when it airs. But don't be one of them.
Watch the ad now, and go "awwwww..." By the way, the track is by Passenger. "Let Her Go" has been played more relentlessly on radio and elsewhere this past year than even Daft Punk's "Get Lucky."
