The beloved Clydesdale horses are not making an appearance in this year’s Budweiser Super Bowl ad a few headlines are shouting. Well, that’s not 100% correct.
According to other sources, the Clydesdales are in this year’s Budweiser Super Bowl ad — but for about two seconds and out of focus. Must be these horses.
It is, however, 100% correct to say that there is no Clydesdale ad. This is a major disappointment for a lot of people especially Budweiser drinkers.
“I will no longer purchase any Budweiser products until the Clydesdales return,” says Sue from Ohio.
Others have gone so far as to say they will not be tuning in to televised coverage of the Super Bowl but will simply check the score from time to time on Twitter and look at the ads on YouTube later.
But there will be horses. Or at least one horse thanks to Snickers.
The Horse Channel reports:
“This doesn’t mean that there won’t be any equine distractions during the many breaks in the action between the Patriots and the Falcons. Snickers is trying out a new gimmick with its ad spot, airing a commercial live. The ad will star Adam Driver and, apparently, a horse.”
See a handful of Clydesdales Budweiser ads at The Horse Channel website here.
In the meantime, it is alarming to read that the Rare Breeds Survival Trust list Clydesdale horses as “vulnerable” meaning there are only 500 to 900 in existence. Visit this link and click on the plus sign on the Equine Section.

“And while there won’t be any puppies this year, the Clydesdales will be back! The Budweiser Super Bowl LI commercial was filmed in New Orleans which is where the company’s founder, Adolphus Busch, first arrived to in America.”

IN THE NEWS
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 >>
