'Game of Thrones' Makes Surprise Appearance in Bud Light's Super Bowl Ad

"Maybe I am getting used to my occupation and products being smeared for the sake of a marketing ploy". "It was damaging to corn, and it leads people to believe that corn is a bad ingredient". He says Budweiser's new marketing campaign slighting corn syrup has him confused.

While Game of Thrones fans still have a little more than two months to wait until the new season begins, they were given something to quench their thirst during Super Bowl LIII on Sunday.

American consumption of high fructose corn syrup started to fall at the beginning of the millennium when it was linked to the country's high rate of obesity.

The mascot of Bud Light met an early demise in the beer company's 60-second Super Bowl commercial, thanks to Game of Thrones's The Mountain, and this may be the biggest partnership of the decade.

So, what do you get when you combine the Mountain, Bud Light, a joust and Drogon? We don't use corn syrup so we're better than you.

"We fully support corn growers and will continue to invest in the corn industry".

European Union says it will not renegotiate Brexit deal
Following the vote, Goldman Sachs nudged up its estimated probability of a no-deal Brexit to 15pc from 10pc. LANGFITT: But not everyone in Dublin thinks the Irish government has played the Brexit border issue wisely.

The ad - one in a series by the beermaker set in times of the popular drama "Game of Thrones" - a king learns that a massive cask of corn syrup has been delivered to his brewery. A horizon full of spinning wind turbines can be seen in the background as Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind" plays.

Donald Trump Jr. weighed in on a Washington Post ad that attempted to showcase the importance of the mainstream media's journalism. The statement says it's up to consumers "to decide what beer is right for them".

The 60-second commercial, to be narrated by Hollywood actor Tom Hanks, will briefly show several slain or missing journalists affiliated with the Washington Post and other publications, including Jamal Khashoggi who was murdered inside the Saudi embassy in Istanbul past year.

"Businesses are responding to their customers by seeking out the lowest-cost clean energy they can find to power their products and operations reliably".

"You could use doughnuts if you wanted", Schumacher said.
