Less beer, more ponies!
The annual release of the Budweiser Superbowl Clydesdale commercial is kind of a big deal to our people because duh, the Clydesdales are the real heroes of February. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I like a good football game as much as the next gal, and our editor extraordinaire Leslie has some pretty powerful feelings about Peyton Manning:
But really, it’s all about the Clydesdales. Which makes this year’s commercial a bit of a head-scratcher.
Is it beautiful? Yes. Did I get chills? I did a little bit. But did it have enough Clydesdale? Uhhh, NO SIR IT DID NOT.
What Clydesdale there was in the commercial was pretty gorgeous; the close-up of the muzzles, the sassy feathers clomping in the mist. There just should have been more of it. What do you think, Citizens of Horse Nation? Is this a case of ‘less is more’, or should we take a stroll to St. Louis and demand more Clydesdale? (Or I’ll settle for a free case of beer to heal my pain. I’m a reasonable woman.)
