Well, it’s that time of year again—the Super Bowl is here. And regardless of who’s playing in the big game, you can bet that there will be a lot of big commercials. And you can also bet that some of those commercials will include animals. In fact, for several years in a row, Budweiser has run ads during the Super Bowl featuring their famous Clydesdale horses, and the beer brewer will be sure to air another one this year.
With that in mind, “The ASM Video Link Spotlight” features one of Budweiser’s Super Bowl ads from years gone by. This one is titled, “Born a Donkey,” and you can view it by clicking here.
What will 2011 bring in the way of Super Bowl videos involving animals? Well, we’ll have to wait and see, since the game is on Sunday, February 6. But as always, we want your help! Be on the lookout for the best Super Bowl ad featuring animals. Then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org describing your favorite commercial, including what it was about the company or product it featured.
You never know . . . you might see your name in a future issue of The Animal Science Monitor! It happened before, it could happen again. Well, maybe your name wasn’t in The ASM before, but somebody else’s was. As for the big game itself, go Steelers! (Don’t let Dan see that; he’s a big Baltimore Ravens fan. He’s still a great guy, though.)
