A taste of the youtube comments says it all:

This is a video that pays respect to the victims of 9/11 and the event that has changed the course of America. That's all that this is. I think it's incredible, I love it. Like everyday, I'll be proudly flying Old Glory in my front yard, especially today. But as usual, the agenda driven idiots on youtube are using this to cry racism, or hate speech, or whatever. Get lost, because come November, things are going to really "Change".

If you haven't seen this, See it NOW. It's AWESOME.
We could learn something from these magnificent horses...
Sad thing about that first one is that he's probably right about november. I expect to see a shift from the lesser of back to the greater of two evils.
Crass, meet marketing. Marketing, meet crass.
I remember this. It aired during the Super Bowl just after 9/11. I actually screamed out loud when the horses bowed. I was at a party full of conservative dipshits at my college--they didn't even give me dirty looks, the idea of objecting to this kind of thing was so unheard of at the time. They were just puzzled.
Oh god, I remember the speeches at my college the week after. Someone actually used alliteration like it was a damn Dr. Suess story.
"As we navigate through the ruinous rubble of recourse,"
I was the only one that found it inappropriate.
Budweiser would like to honor the fallen in this touching commercial spot. That's Budweiser: Proud Beer of the Fallen.
Buy our beer.
I'm totally up for some drunken jingoism after watching this ad.
|Robert DeNegro |
Jesus H. fucking Christ almighty!
Why would they make this ad? Muslims don't drink beer.
I'm pretty sure they're facing West.

Look, they are horses, and horses are not exactly geniuses. The point is they were praying towards Mecca in their hearts.
They are using the deaths of 3000 people to sell pisswater! Am I the only person who hasn't gone insane?!
|engrish muffin |
What! They saddled up those Clydesdales for nothing!?
They should drive their cart into the Mosque and force the Muslims to drink beer, thus making them realize how stupid their religion is.
I'm pretty sure forcing them to drink Bud is waterboarding.
I was half expecting them to charge on a herd of camels or something. Somehow they managed to be even more offensive than I imagined.
Hey moustache-less Saddam Hussein barber, you don't look to happy about the liquid freedom rolling through town.
Don't forget to drink Budweiser while you cry over your lost countrymen!
Was that Dom Irrera playing the barber?
Two American tragedies; 9/11 and disgusting, ubiquitous Budweiser beer.

I hate this country.

The terrorists actually used dirty bombs and killed everyone in the world but the people in the shielded Towers and a portion of the pentagon. EVERY OTHER SINGLE PERSON ON EARTH DIED ON 9/11 AND WE NEVER GOT OVER IT BECAUSE WE ARE ALL FUCKING SELF-OBSESSED GARBAGE.

Was that horse crying?
When did the U.S. become a ridiculous and commercialized version of itself that we need beer horses to be this patriotic?
According to Wikipedia, 1876, but I think that's a hundred years late.
there are 9 letters in the word budweiser. there are 8 horses, 2 drivers, and one carriage. therefore, the name of the beer divided by the entities in the commercial = 9/11
OH FUCK YOU GUYS
How about Chester Cheetah laying prostrate before the pentagon?
This was horrible and made me uncomfortable/embarrassed/sad.
So five stars.
Think about the many people involved in the production of this thing that had to decide it was a good idea before it went on national TV.
FUCK YEAH, AMERICA
Goodbye horses, I'm flying over you.
I thought they were getting ready to stomp out a number.
Five minutes later, the Most Interesting Man in the world walked in, slapped the horses right on their faces, and told them to stop being ridiculous jingoistic soulless pisswater-selling dicks.
AMERICA EATS TRAGEDY AND SHITS STUPID SOULLESS COMMERCIAL BULLSHIT and pisses something remarkably similar to budweiser.
'What has happened is - now you all have to turn your brains around - the greatest work of art there has ever been. That minds could achieve something in one act, which we in music cannot even dream of, that people rehearse like crazy for ten years, totally fanatically for one concert, and then die. This is the greatest possible work of art in the entire cosmos. Imagine what happened there. There are people who are so concentrated on one performance, and then 5000 people are chased into the Afterlife, in one moment. This I could not do. Compared to this, we are nothing as composers... Imagine this, that I could create a work of art now and you all were not only surprised, but you would fall down immediately, you would be dead and you would be reborn, because it is simply too insane. Some artists also try to cross the boundaries of what could ever be possible or imagined, to wake us up, to open another world for us.'
Karlheinz Stockhausen, Hamburg, September 2001.
".... The journalist in Hamburg completely ripped my statements out of a context, which he had not recorded in its entirety, to use it as a vile attack against my person and the Hamburg Music Festival.
This whole situation is regrettable and I am deeply sorry if my remarks were misconstrued to offend the grieving families of the brutal terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington D.C. I will continue to keep the victims of this outrage in my prayers"

I don't really get what that had to do with the horses but I'm glad I read it, thanks.
Miller never responded to my idea about a commercial where, just as the south tower begins to collapse, the Coors Light silver bullet train pulls up. The frost-brewed power of the Rockies is so icy cold that it holds the tower solid and no one jumps out of the windows. Then the hijackers want some beer but everyone's like, nuh uh. Then they have a laugh about it and give them a beer anyway. [cue "love train"]
sorry i missed your little brackets there before responding. PoE hive mind is in effect.

I think I remember this scene from "The Day After Tomorrow."
I am glad the description explained what this was supposed to be about. Otherwise, I would not have understood what they were aiming for.
