The ad campaign was going to end anyway, but most people needed to be reminded how little they would miss those politically themed “Bud Light Party” spots, which reportedly failed to drive sales among the younger set.

How could ads featuring Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen not miss? Adweek reported on the ad campaign back in January, when a Bud Lite executive asked, “Who is a better representation of the humor that is incredibly relevant right now than Seth and Amy?” Right now might have referred to that particular hour of that winter day, or it might have been a sly reference to the new slogan, “Raise one to right now.”
The same executive also made it “very, very clear” that Bud Lite had no intention of getting into politics; too bad for the brand, then, that Schumer didn’t follow suit, instead playing the old “leaving the country if my candidate doesn’t win” card.
@adland but they're both so popular ?????

@adland Nothing funnier than "actors" going political and hurting their careers. Well done clowns.

People love them! At least that’s what the guy told Adweek. Does he even work there anymore?
@adland who is the idiot who thought that using them to target their customers was a good idea???

@adland Seth was funny, then he got a vagina and thought social justice was more important than enjoying life Problematic as they say

@adland not sure why the image of portly obnoxious celebrities doesn't connect with hardworking Americans?

@adland classic case of not understanding their target audience. Much of America hates SJWs and fake social justice issues.

@adland When you try to jam social justice into your business it will decline.

@adland There never have been or will be any commercials better then the Clydesdale commercials. Never tiring and always beautiful.
