Budweiser foal featured in Super Bowl ad.

Budweiser’s Super Bowl ad shows new foal

Okay, get your hankies out. Here is this year’s Budweiser Super Bowl ad featuring the beloved Clydesdale horses.


ST. LOUIS – Budweiser has launched its first-ever Twitter account.

The iconic brand marked the occasion with another “first” involving the Budweiser Clydesdales – tweeting the first photo of a member of the elite “Budweiser Clydesdales Class of 2013,” a beautiful 150-pound baby born the morning of Jan. 16. It was the brand’s first-ever Tweet.

Using #clydesdales, Budweiser also is asking Twitter followers of @Budweiser and Facebook friends to help name the young equine star, who will be seen by an estimated 110+ million viewers this Sunday during Super Bowl XLVII.

“This newest member of the Budweiser Clydesdale family was 7 days old on the day this part of the Super Bowl commercial was filmed,” said Jeff Knapper, general manager of Clydesdale operations. “A star was truly born on Jan. 16.”

More than 30 baby Clydesdales are expected to be born this year at the 300-acre Warm Springs Ranch, the state-of-the-art breeding facility for the Budweiser Clydesdales in Boonville, Mo. Read more at KVOA.com >>

  1. Yes the ad implies the foal is a orphan and that we can have such a wonderful relationship with them that does not break.


  2. Beautifully done and yep got my kleenex….this is one of the very best commercials done….what true heart and truth as horses do remember. They feel with emotion and love for us….as we love them and they truly do love us back…forever.


  3. This is so beautiful. ALWAYS love “Bud’s” ads. Saw their Clydesdale horses, wagon and firedog at Santa Anita a couple of times.


  4. I am so totally in love with this. As far as I am concerned this is the best ad that Budweiser has ever had, at least for the Superbowl. There have been equally good tributes to fallen soldiers and crisis situations so I am not trying to compare. But this definitely pulls on the old heartstrings when it comes to the feeling of love, compassion and the bonds we form with animals.


  5. Please use this on your facebook page, all advocates: and ask for the public to ban horse slaughter with comments on the site, tweets and pleas. If seeing the orphaned foal growing up to be lead horse on the Bud team makes everyone cry, just think what saving a youngster about to go into the slaughter pipeline, or a past Bud horse that has somehow gotten into that horror would do for our cause. And we all know that it has happened!
    And it truly touched me:
    Here is my comment on YOUTUBE:
    And if you have raised an orphan foal as I have and as this ad portrays, it expands your heart and makes you cry. Good job, Budweiser. Now make us an ad where you save a Clydesdale from horse slaughter, and help Ban that unnecessary cruelty forever.
