Busch Beer: BUSCHHHHH – 2017 Super Bowl
Busch is making its Super Bowl debut when the brand’s “BUSCHHHHH” commercial airs during the first quarter of Super Bowl LI on February 5. The Busch Beer 2017 Super Bowl spot was developed by the advertising agency Deutsch, New York, who was named Busch’s new lead creative agency in August 2016.
Busch’s 30-second Super Bowl spot revitalizes some of the brand’s iconic marketing assets like the “stream pull” and “BUSCHHHHH” can crack sound – which first appeared in 1978 and continued in different variations until 2009. The spot also introduces consumers to the Busch Guy for the first time, who will be featured in TV assets throughout the year. Additionally, the Busch cans featured in the commercial reflect the brand’s new look that will hit stores in early April.
“The goal for our first-ever Super Bowl commercial was to create a spot that was unmistakably Busch,” said Chelsea Phillips, Sr. Director of Value Brands at Anheuser-Busch. “By featuring our iconic ‘stream pull’ and the ‘BUSCHHHHH’ can crack sound, we created a relatable and funny spot, expected to resonate strongly with those consumers who have the same values that we do.”
“Busch is staying true to who we are and what we stand for as a brand with the ‘BUSCHHHHH’ spot,” added Phillips. “Plus, the Super Bowl gave us the ideal platform to tease our refreshed packaging that will hit shelves in April.”
“We’re excited to be reintroducing Busch to the country at the big game. The creative, shot by director Harold Einstein, pays homage to the classic elements of Busch advertising while putting a fresh, comedic spin on it for today,” added Dan Kelleher, Chief Creative Officer of Deutsch’s NY office.
The advert is effective and now I really want to drink some Buschhhhhhhh beer.
