Womp Womp. Budweiser Wind Commercial Goes on, to Consternation of Fossil Fuel Activists

February 4, 2019

Energy and Policy Institute:

The pro-wind power Budweiser ad that Anheuser-Busch will air during the Super Bowl on Sunday is being attacked by the fossil fuel industry.

The Kentucky Coal Association is among the groups attacking the Budweiser ad, which has already racked up nearly 14 million views on YouTube. Their attack was echoed by the website ClimateDepot.com, a project of a coal-backed group called the Committee for Constructive Tomorrow.

“Wind never felt better,” the Budweiser ad says. “Now brewed with wind power for a better tomorrow.”

The first volley came from the American Energy Alliance just one day after Anheuser-Busch announced the ad. It described Budweiser’s pro-wind power statement as a “joke.”

The American Energy Alliance is the “advocacy arm” of the Institute for Energy Research. Together these affiliated political groups have received millions of dollars from the Koch brothers, as well as money from the coal industry.

The attack was soon joined by Kevon Martis, an anti-wind activist with ties to the Institute for Energy Research and other groups funded by polluting industries.

Martis posted a video on Facebook in which he protested the Budweiser ad by dumping a can of the company’s beer on the ground. Martis said in the video that he is the director of the Interstate Informed Citizens Coalition, a Michigan-based anti-wind group.

    A beautiful ad from Budweiser—-the Clydesdales, dog, and beer wagon have never been put to better use in a Stupor Bowl ad.

    It’s good to see all the whores and anal orifices getting all worked up over it, too. They’re running scared more and more each day.

    Maybe that moron Martis can start a movement of red MAGA-hatted morons dumping $2 to $3 cans of Bud on the ground while making idiotic speeches—-that should help Budweiser’s bottom line while it lasts!
