Bud Light Drops Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen as Pitchpyrsyns, As Bud Light Sales Fall
— Ace

It's funny, a commenter just brought this up last week or the one before.

And now they're out.

A spokesman for the company told AdWeek they were "clearly not satisfied."

"Despite continued positive signs in brand health evolution, driven by millennials and Hispanics, 3Q was the softest performance of Bud Light for the year from a volume and share perspective," Lisa Weser said.

"The Bud Light Party campaign helped us improve these brand attributes, but it did not translate to improved volume and share performance. While we are clearly not satisfied with Bud Light's performance, we are already leveraging what we've learned to develop and execute new work."

Beer companies probably shouldn't hire fat people to sell a product widely believed to cause fattening.

5 So they sold less beer overall but they sold more to Hispanics and milennials.Good job.

28 I don't drink as often as I used to but always have beer in the fridge for guests etc. Used to be bud light in there but after seeing the ad when it first came on I bought some Miller next time I was out.

Posted by: kahall at October 31, 2016 09:48 AM (xTgLs)

29 Anhauser Busch got bought by a big foreign company, which had a business plan to slow payments to vendors. Ad agencies weren't getting paid for over six months. I'd bet the better agencies walked or stopped putting in their best effort. That and the new owner doesn't understand Americans. Which is why Bud's Super Bowl ads now suck, and why we got ads with Amy. Bud is one of the few beers I don't like, but I don't like seeing a classic American brand killed like this.

31 I am shocked that jokes about women being paid less than men doesn't sell beer. Because that's exactly the type of thing I like to discuss when drinking beer with friends while watching a football game where half the bench sits out the national anthem, players are wearing pink for breast cancer, and the ads are constantly lecturing me to stop beating my (imaginary) girlfriend.

Good times, y'all!!

40 The ads were stupid. Also, given the NFL ratings decline for insulting large swaths of Americans, BL is advertised on said NFL games, seems likely to be a decline in sales on that demographic. Also, fat and ugly and not funny. Both of them. It's like the ad execs missed Sex Sells (especially Beer) 101.

57 The ads were bad to begin with, they weren't funny, were stupid, and didn't in any way want anyone to drink beer, let alone Bud Lite. Then, adding these two with their very narrow fan base, to be the spokescreeps? Its not bad enough that they aren't broadly admired, but they are actually disliked by a lot of people. Whoever was behind this should lose their job and have Don Draper take over the office.

94 OK didn't catch much of the previous threads, and I don't do predictions, but watching enemy actions is always the most solid intel move when trying to assess what *they* think is happening. LDC said Hill-vermin campaign is focusing on MI, FL, OH, NC in the home stretch. Trumpenfuhrer appearances will include MI and PA, as well as NM NV CO NH and swing/battleground states, plus OH FL. I don't have much confidence or respect for the country since 2012 (actually, before). But all the anecdotal plus behavioral indicators are pointing to a very long sad night for Paul Ryan, Bill Kristol, Ben Sasse, BLM, the SEIU, La Raza, and ISIS.

I haven't heard quite as much weaselspeak in one sentence since the floundering George W. Bush, having failed to produce the promised WMD in Iraq, instead insisted that there had been found "dozens of weapons of mass destruction related program activities".

Program activities?

It was shortly thereafter when Bush began to display negative signs in his brand health evolution.

241 The point where you knew the commercial campaign was going to go badly was the one where Schummer and Rogan were complaining about the "wage" gap between men and women. I guess AB didn't realize that most of their consumers were men and they didn't want to be lectured to by Schummer while Rogan came off as a complete beta male. Good ad campaign. About as bad as the engaged encounter I had to attend with my wife before we were married. One session was on natural family planning. Which would be great.

278 Bud, and ESPECIALLY Bud Lite, are simply Beers for people who really dislike Beer.

The Reason:  Bud tastes like crap, and bud lite tastes like watered down crap.   Anyone who actually likes Beer knows this, and will spew it out instantly.  There are so many good beers out at any store now today!  Doesn't matter which specialty you like - pilsners, lagers, IPA's, brown ales, hoppy beers, non-hoppy beers, stouts - on and on, there are so many, and so many good tasting examples available in each niche!  Why would anyone drink swill like Bud?

Here's why - because if you are someone who really hates beer (and this includes most women) then it all tastes like crap to you, and if you feel compelled by peer pressure to drink some of the crap (in your view) that other people are drinking, it might as well be heavily promoted crap and easily available, and kind of cheap.  Why not?

And this is why Bud's best costumers are people who socially want to be seen to be drinking something with their friends, even though they secretly hate it and would rather be drinking anything else.

342 I think it's pretty interesting as an exercise to see how these people think.

Amy Schumer went from IT girl to joke over night with the joke stealing thing, where she was mocked ruthlessly. She also tanked in her movies, so she's not exactly a hot property. BUT, libs WANT her to be, since she ticks all the boxes for proper IT girl qualifications.

So people outright reject Amy Schumer and all she stands for, and yet the Libs still push her movies and ad firms still get her hired for stupid commercials. It's almost like they live in a reality where you, Joe Flyover, have no right to not spend money on their favorite things.

Seth Rogen is the exact same scenario. His movies started bombing once his Canadian ass started opining on politics. People voted with their wallets.

So again, being a corporation, I'd be EXTREMELY careful who I placed the super-valuable BRAND name with, since it's a fucking SJW-Average American WWIII minefield.

353 The "Most Interesting Man" campaign was probably the best ad series in the last 20 years. It also had the benefit that it was a relatively smaller beer company that it could better establish. That's about the only ad campaign I can remember in a good long while where it did move the needle for me on maybe buying it.

373 VIA, polls schmolls - unless taken in context. Sometimes good for trends - when they pretty much line-up, and when they "make sense" in terms of actual events. In this case of course they make a lot of sense. But the usual applies, internals, turn-out model, blahblahblah. 2012 remains in some ways a mystery. But it keeps me from being optimistic, *even* now. But as many here have said for some time, a comfortable Trumpenvictory would not be at all surprising. So many indicators and logical presumptions are consistent with such an outcome, though they don't guarantee it.

411 How to sell mass-market beer:
1. Make beer
2. Make it taste alright
3. Sell it for a decent price

You don't need a spokesliberal to get me to buy your product. Tell me your beer is refreshing and cheap. Show me Joe Everyman enjoying one at the local bar. Show me a buxom woman walking into this bar. The neckbeard hipsters are too busy arguing about whose pants are tight enough to show off their man vag so the woman displays no interest. Some slimy weasel yuppie sort tries to buy her an overpriced fruity drink and she just keeps on walking. Big Booby Betty finally sees Joe Everyman and his Bud Light. Betty appreciates his taste in beer and his thriftiness and decides that Joe's her man.

Bud Light: It will get you laid by chicks with a good rack.

430 Not trying to defend the choice of Rogan/Schumer, but isn't there some degree of inertia involved in the whole process as well? These ads have been going on for a few months so far, which means that the actual choice of actors probably happened sometime last year. And the writers at the ad agency started concepting them out before even then. The fact that this happened in the middle of a highly polarized election season during which time the two actors they pick happen to come out vocally against the same market that they're trying to court could mostly be one of timing.

444 How to sell mass-market beer: 1. Make beer 2. Make it taste alright 3. Sell it for a decent price You don't need a spokesliberal to get me to buy your product. Tell me your beer is refreshing and cheap. Show me Joe Everyman enjoying one at the local bar. Show me a buxom woman walking into this bar. The neckbeard hipsters are too busy arguing about whose pants are tight enough to show off their man vag so the woman displays no interest. Some slimy weasel yuppie sort tries to buy her an overpriced fruity drink and she just keeps on walking. Big Booby Betty finally sees Joe Everyman and his Bud Light. Betty appreciates his taste in beer and his thriftiness and decides that Joe's her man. Bud Light: It will get you laid by chicks with a good rack. Watch the sales skyrocket.

I think ad agencies had been taken over by young turks who have all these "in your face!" and "smash the comfort zone!" ideas which are ultimately based in social marxism but which they have brought into the world of mainstream advertising. They talk a good game and lure these major clients in, the produce ads which feature a feel-bad extravaganza of disastrous backfiring jokes -- and sales PLUMMET afterwards. I see it over and over and over for countless brands. Yet somehow, the ad agencies jive-talk their way out of it. What we are seeing is the ultimate mashup of culture-destroying progressive activism and desperate cooptive capitalism. Who will win?

461 When Lite Beer first started making commercials (Less filling/tastes great) they specifically chose athletes as pitchmen as a hedge against the impression that drinking light beer is a sign of effeminacy. Later they based a series of commercials on a council of "men's men" around a table proclaiming "Man Laws." Every time I saw a "Man Law" commercial I would say to whoever was in earshot, "Man law number one is that 'light' beer is never to be considered actual beer."

They aren't really even trying to sell anything except how "brilliant" and "edgy" they are any more. The thing is, I have a hard time judging ads, because they never work on me. Ever.

People don't want to be inundated with marketing by annoying, arrogant, unattractive, preaching, insulting, self-righteous, anti-American, prima donna athletes and corporate sports suits and supposed entertainers.

re: Loopy Ben

On the Glenn Beck Radio Program today, at about 11:11 a.m. eastern time, Glenn Beck stated that he no longer is certain that Darrell Castle is getting his vote. He briefly mentioned that he, as of today, would vote for Evan McMullin, but then immediately remarked again that he is uncertain.

He's not going to push the outrageous behavior envelope too much, because he has a good thing going.

MILF = "Mother I'd Like to F**K" -- an attractive mom-aged woman. GILF = "Grandmother I'd Like to F**K" -- theoretically an attractive older woman. However, the age ranges in PRON have shifted downward, so now anyone over about 22 is a "MILF" and anyone over about 34 is a "GILF." I don't make the rules, I just report them.

I'd be curious to know if you've ever been hypnotized.  If you couldn't be hypnotized then I wonder if there is a correlation between people who can't be hypnotized and people who are unmoved by otherwise effective television advertising.

MIT conducted a media study in the 80's on the effects of television viewer and brain activity.  Seems the mental state of a television viewer somewhat resembles subjects in a hypnotic state. 

As an aside, Sony and other media companies have conducted in-depth research into this subject since MIT's groundbreaking work--and probably prior to it.  None of their work, unlike MIT's, has been published.

Well, much of advertising is merely announcing the existence of a product in hopes it will then sell. But there is a vast amount more of advertising that seems to be there just to berate and annoy.

The funny thing is, some of the best ads I've ever watched were for products I would never buy simply because I have no need for them. Yet, if you have the need for the product you will seek it out without prompting.

Like finance, advertising is one of the industries that has created the illusion of being far more necessary than it really is.

Posted by: Margarita DeVille at October 31, 2016 03:36 PM (Nox3c) Fuck. That. While I agree that she's smeagol and the POTUS is the ring to her, it's not enough. This country has been through hell with this family for 3 decades, and if laws have been broken (no duh!) she needs to be held accountable in the same way the rest of the country would be. The whole concept of the rule of law and equality before the law demands it.

599 Advertising seems to have two valid purposes: 1) awareness; I know I'd sell more books if more people knew they existed. 99.999% of the earth has no idea I even have any books out there, and just having more eyeballs would translate into more sales. 2) reminder; hey we're still out there, don't forget us! Trying to get people to buy your product? I guess it works but does it work well enough to pay for the advertising fees? I'm skeptical. It probably did in the past, but I wonder today. I suspect a lot of companies are working under schemes and data that's decades out of date.

615 Speaking of the Scots and whiskey- IMHO the Japanese are making better "Scotch" than the Scots these days. I was gifted a bottle of Hibiki 21 and, my God, the parade of flavors and smells from that stuff is just heavenly. I've never had a scotch to compare with the Hibiki or come close. And because...what the hell... I'll contend that PVW 15 is better than PVW 23. Too much wood in the 23. But the 15 is loaded with flavor and just the right amount of wood. I believe as a general rule whiskey/whiskey unless handled very carefully hits it's peak in flavor between 15-16 yrs old.

Last year's Super Bowl ad were not going to have any Clydesdales in them. There was an online petition that demanded the horses appear and also began to sound the alarm that Imbev might be getting ready to cease the Clydesdale operation. Imbev relented and put a last minute ad up. Not near the quality of the normal Clydesdale ads. It's what happens when a company doesn't understand not just the market, but the country it is marketing.

Posted by: naturalfake at October 31, 2016 04:11 PM (0cMkb) =================== The only Macallan I've had is their 18, and it was delicious. Of course, there's not exactly a huge difference between 16 and 18 years. I want to try something in the 20s at some point, if only to say that I have.

Um...I'll take the Guinness thank you very much.

672 It's not fair that you people dislike Amy Schumer because she's flabby. That's just shallow. And body shaming. You should be like me and dislike her because she has that wide nose, icky mouth, and pointy chin. I'm pretty sure that face shaming is okay.

677 "Hillary Clinton Enlists Star of 1964 "Daisy" Ad To Question Trump On Nukes." A fifty-two year old political ad. Yeah, I am sure that will work. Posted by: *Mikey NTH - Purchase a Self-Denouncement Kit from the Outrage Outlet! at October 31, 2016 03:59 PM (hLRSq) A 52 year old ad that (despite the legend) almost certainly had no effect on the '64 election. Didn't matter who the GOP nominated that year, the country just was not going to kick the sainted JFK's successor to the curb. No matter how much of a cocksucker he was.

678 . Imbev relented and put a last minute ad up. Not near the quality of the normal Clydesdale ads. It's what happens when a company doesn't understand not just the market, but the country it is marketing. Posted by: Jen the original at October 31, 2016 04:13 PM (oDUj/) That's crazy. Granted I'm an old fogie, but I think the Clydesdales are the main thing that separates Bud from the other crappy beers. There was a hitch where I worked and I got to see them most days, either doing their daily parade art just walking down the back road with one of their workers. I couldn't get enough of them ever. It would crack me up to see four or so of them ambling down the road with a little man barely visible in there among the huge beasts, holding the halter ropes. Good thing they're so well behaved.

681 "The ads are bizarre, rarely have anything to do with the virtues of the product, often (as noted above) its hard to even know what the product IS. Ad campaigns that do well in trade show awards like the Burger King "wake up with the king" campaign are praised, but don't move product. They aren't really even trying to sell anything except how "brilliant" and "edgy" they are any more. " ---------------------------------------------------------- I've often wondered about this. It almost seems like they're signaling that if you don't know the secret code, you aren't cool enough to buy their product. It's more important to appear edgy and hip than it is to move product. They must have the execs who sign off on this crap convinced it's the new wave.

I can't get a feel for how things are going here. I assume the Douchebag Party in Arlington and Fairfax will go for the FAB. As far as I can tell, the rest of the Commonwealth could go either way.

Posted by: stace...SMOD/Creepy Clown 2016 at October 31, 2016 04:26 PM (ozZau) Besides the 911 ad they did with the Clydesdale's all bowing to NYC with never forget on a banner, the best ad, IMO, was the one with the puppy who kept escaping to visit his friend the Clydesdale. And the one with the little baby Clydesdale trying to fit into a collar and pull the wagon, who is unknowingly helped by the older horses pushing. Ads like that are wonderfully quiet, virtuous short stories that make you feel good about the product. Not some fat, stupid liberal actors lecturing me on what I should think about the world in general, and oh, here's our beer we are pitching.

Posted by: Jen the original at October 31, 2016 11:41 AM (oDUj/)

696 I stopped ordering and buying Bud Light months ago because of those commercials. On Saturday night a guy asked for a Miller Lite and when the bartender asked whether Bud Light was okay he literally scoffed and obliquely referenced the commercials. I'll never buy the product again as it appears Bud Light has been fully converged.

699 "Despite continued positive signs in brand health evolution, driven by millennials and Hispanics, 3Q was the softest performance of Bud Light for the year from a volume and share perspective...The Bud Light Party campaign helped us improve these brand attributes, but it did not translate to improved volume and share performance. While we are clearly not satisfied with Bud Light's performance, we are already leveraging what we've learned to develop and execute new work." Don't you feel a vague sense of vertigo when you notice how much the language of advertising industry bigwigs resembles the language of Liberal political bigwigs? "It's all about growing the brand baby!"

700 My daughter works at a major bewer and we were discussing the terriblness of this...Schumer and Rogen. She, my daughter, being a good millenial said that if Bud was going after the millenials, they were doing it wrong... Then last night she read to me a story about Lady Gaga and Bud doing a "dive bar" tour. "Who the hell listens to Lady Gaga, who visits a dive bar?" she yelled. So another gazillion dollars down a rat hole...

Posted by: Francisco A Lopez at November 01, 2016 11:34 AM (6A6AQ)

701 I'm no beer expert, but how the beer tastes was hardly the problem with the "Bud Light Party" ad campaign. Bud Light is normally an extremely high-selling beer brand. In 2014, it was the best-selling brand of beer in the U.S., and had almost twice the sales of the #2 brand (Coors Light). That doesn't make it good, but it does show that the brand was starting from a position of strength in the market. You may not like it, I may not like it, but there are lots and lots of people who drink it anyway. Bud Light didn't make their beer taste any worse by hiring Schumer and Rogen to advertise it.

They did, however, align themselves with liberals (the fact that  all the signs in their ad were blue certainly boosted that impression), and I can't see how doing that is going to improve a brand's strength in the long term.
