Bud Light's corn syrup Super Bowl ad prompts response from competition

Share

The commercial begins with a large barrel of corn syrup being delivered to Bud Light.

The ad features the fictional Bud Knight in a jost for the kingdom, but as he boldly gallops toward his opponent, he is shockingly defeated.

As you can see, MillerCoors fired a serious shot by pointing out that its products don't contain high-fructose corn syrup, while some of Anheuser-Busch InBev's do. "Our office is right down the road! Thanks @MillerLight and @CoorsLite for supporting our industry".

When the beer company receives a delivery for corn syrup, the lords and knights don't understand why they received it when they don't brew their beer with corn syrup.

As of halftime, Bud Light had yet to respond to being called out by National Corn.

This year's Super Bowl ads largely ducked controversy ― with perhaps one unexpected exception. "Miller Lite has been gaining share for 17 straight quarters & someone's feeling the heat!" But corn farmers weren't amused by the implication that corn syrup is unhealthy or undesirable. "Things that make you go hmmmmm", he wrote on Twitter.

Bud Light wasn't at the center of the only controversy during Super Bowl LIII, but the beer did manage to stir up some outrage during the big game.
