    So Miller Lite's new commercial is a behind the scenes of one of the Bud Knight commercials where the Bud Knight drinks a Miller Lite at the end of filming.

    Brewers and knowledgeable consumers are annoyed by the Bud Light ads because they pretend to make an important distinction about the products where there isn't one.

    It'd be like Buick claiming it's styled vestigial venti-ports on the side of their cars were an enhancement that made their car better than Fords or Cadillacs, when they serve no purpose at all whatsoever, and then building an entire ad campaign on the three little holes on each side of the Buick's hood. It's ludicrous.

    Then, when pressed on why they have a problem with using corn sweeteners to start fermentation, Bud Light spokespeople cynically say that they use it in many other products and aren't trying to imply there's something wrong with brands that do. So people call ******** on Budweiser for pretending they can have it both ways.

    Was a little surprised that InBev double downed with the newest commercial continuing to slam corn syrup. To each their own they must think it will work.

    I don't really understand Bud Light's angle on this. 95% of beer drinkers don't care if there is corn syrup in the beer, and they're just pissing off farmers.

    I guess, but was Bud Light really lacking publicity?

    It's not like products like Coke or Bud Light just stop advertising because everyone knows about them.

    But does Coke actively try to piss off a large group of people in an advertising campaign? I know the marketing people at Bud Light have a pretty good idea of what they're doing, but it seems like an odd strategy to me. Bud Light sucks anyways so I don't care that much, just amusing to see the reactions.

    Budweiser already has an ad to counter the Miller one, saw it today during one of tournament games.

    Not always. Just ask the New Coke marketing geniuses from 1985.

    "I drink Busch Light, and NOTHING else." Beer snobbery at its apparent best.

    I don't understand those commercials anyway. At any point was anyone concerned about Corn Syrup in the beer? Honestly. It's like the commercials are pointing out something I didn't even really know existed and won't have any effect on any beer I drink. Who gives a rip if it has corn syrup.

    It wasn't that long ago that there was formaldehyde in beer (there still is in Chinese beers). Mass-produced beers still flavor beer with a hint of formaldehyde-like taste because people became accustomed to it.
