Will Ferrell's Super Bowl ad

Last night during the Super Bowl, amidst the multi-million dollars ads featuring Ferris Bueller, beer dogs, and Stars Wars recreations, there was Will Ferrell walking through a soybean field and promoting Old Milwaukee.

What? You missed that one? So did you and most of the rest of America. In fact, the comedian’s $3.5M 30-second bit only aired in the state of Nebraska. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Ferrell has done a series of ads for the beer company that have aired in Davenport, Iowa, and Terre Haute, Indiana.

In my opinion, Old Milwaukee is a terrible beer – but this commercial (especially the ending. Yes, it’s supposed to end that way) will make me smile when I pass by the brand and reach for the Yuengling.

(Unfortunately, a better copy of the ad is not available – so you’ll have to enjoy this low-quality version.)

    Not very low quality dude. Overall I like Will Ferrell’s ‘Secret’ Big Budget Super Bowl Ad. Thanks mate for nice allocation.
