Sample article from our Food & Beverage

NEW YORK , December 4, 2023 (press release) –

Bud Light, the Official Beer Sponsor of the NFL, is tapping Super Bowl Champions and Pro Football Hall of Famers Peyton Manning and Emmitt Smith ahead of the 2023-2024 NFL Playoffs. With its new ad, Bud Light shows the Super Bowl-level excitement of throwing and receiving a game-winning pass, while also kicking off the brand's biggest Super Bowl ticket giveaway ever, where the more fans show their love of Bud Light, the more chances they have to win.

"With Super Bowl tickets in extremely high demand, we are proud to be the sponsor bringing the most fans to the stands with Bud Light's biggest Super Bowl ticket giveaway ever," said Todd Allen, Vice President of Marketing for Bud Light. "Peyton Manning and Emmitt Smith are two players who know exactly how much energy fans can bring to a game; working with them was an incredible experience and we're thrilled to continue our relationship with Peyton for years to come."

A Round of Bud Lights: Peyton Manning Goes Under Center In Bud Light's New Commercial

Set to "It's So Easy" by Margo & Mac, Bud Light's new ad features bar patrons eagerly awaiting NFL Legend Peyton Manning's next move after he orders an ice-cold Bud Light at a crowded bar. He announces a round of Bud Lights on him for the entire bar and, in typical quarterback style, drops back and starts passing cans of Bud Light to 21+ fans with deep throws, Hail Mary's and perfect spirals - all without a single drop spilled. As a fan makes a diving catch, Emmitt Smith joins the crowd to call the touchdown, and joins Peyton as they pass out the brews to a crowd erupting with Super Bowl-winning excitement.

"Experiencing the playoffs or the Super Bowl is a special moment for a fan, and I'm happy that Emmitt and I get to be part of Bud Light's mission to host their largest ever NFL postseason ticket giveaway," said Peyton Manning.

The ad is set to run in a :30 and :15 second format throughout the 2023 NFL Playoff season, leading up to Super Bowl LVIII, and comes as part of the brand's larger "Easy to Drink, Easy to Enjoy" platform established during Super Bowl LVII.

"Having won three Super Bowls, I know that the Super Bowl is one of the most incredible experiences for both fans and players. Giving fans the chance to attend a game this postseason is why I am so excited to partner with Bud Light throughout the NFL Playoffs. Together, we are making it easy for fans to enjoy an ice cold beer and football at its greatest this season," said Pro Football Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith.
