Budweiser’s Emotional Father’s Day Ad Is For The Stepdads That Stepped Up… Grab The Kleenex

Man, it’s too damn early to be crying on a Sunday morning.

Especially from a beer commercial, but nevertheless, here we are…

A couple years back, Budweiser celebrated Father’s Day with a heartwarming nod to all the stepfathers out there that stepped up to the plate and raised a child that wasn’t their own.

It may be a couple years old, but I can’t help but think about it on Father’s Day… and no I’m not adopted, so I suppose that’s the mark of a great ad.

But it isn’t about Budweiser or the agency they hired to make a great commercial, it’s about the stepdads that stepped up.

There’s no doubt that being a stepfather can dramatically change the lives of the children they choose to embrace, a responsibility that is not to be taken lightly.

So today, this Bud’s for all those dads out there, and the dads that they didn’t have to be.

Cue the Brad Paisley classic, “He Didn’t Have To Be.”

And speaking of Buds… how about these beautiful red, white and blue cans?
