It used to be common practice for Super Bowl ads to actually debut during the big game itself, but things have changed in recent years. It's not at all uncommon for companies to release their commercials early online, and this week we have already seen Ryan Reynolds' Hyundai Super Bowl ad, where the actor has been cloned several times. The tradition continues today with Bud Light unveiling their 60-second ad, which features comedians Seth Rogen and Amy Schumer unveiling their campaign for the "Bud Light Party."
Since 2016 is an election year, this ad is even more timely, especially considering how divided Americans have become on several issues. The "Bud Light Party" plans to unify America through beer, with the ad highlighting their campaign, including their huge "caucus," and Seth Rogen reciting a memorable quote from the 1996 action classic Independence Day. Take a look at the comedy stars' official campaign platform below.
"America. They say we're a nation divided. They say we disagree on everything. But they're wrong. We agree on a lot. Like liberty. Justice. Three-day weekends. Funny t-shirts. Jeans. Free parking. Burritos. Sliding on hardwood floors in socks. Cat videos. And beer. Nothing brings America together like Bud Light. That's why we formed the Bud Light Party. A party for everyone: man or woman, liberal or conservative, Broncos or Panthers fan. We don't care about labels. Beer should have labels, not people. We're not stuck in the past. We're unstuck in the present. We are the fake political party America needs right now. Because no matter where we all stand on the issues, we all sit on bar stools. America has seen the light. And there's a Bud in front of it."
The ad also features a few memorable cameo appearances from Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd and Michael Peña. While we still have a few days until the big game airs, this ad could be a front runner for one of the best Super Bowl ads of the year. There will surely be a slew of other ads released over the next few days, including some for highly-anticipated new movies coming out this year. Earlier today, we already saw a sneak peek at Disney's Super Bowl 50 ad for The Jungle Book.
Other movies expected to air new ads during the big game include Deadpool, X-Men: Apocalypse, Independence Day: Resurgence, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Bourne 5 and many more. It was also rumored that the Bourne 5 ad will reveal the title for the first time, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, check out the Bud Light Party ad with Seth Rogen and Amy Schumer.
