See the Spot: Budweiser's Clydesdales Return to Center Stage in Super Bowl

After Taking Supporting Roles in Recent Years, Crowd Favorites Are Back

By Published on .

Anheuser-Busch InBev today released another Super Bowl spot early, giving a full-glimpse of a Budweiser Clydesdale spot that is expected to run in the second quarter. The 60-second ad, which features the classic song "Landslide" by Stevie Nicks, marks a return to center stage for the iconic horses, which had been relegated to supporting roles in recent Super Bowls.

The brewer is supporting the ad with a Twitter promotion that asks fans to name the baby Clydesdale featured in the spot, which was handled by Anomaly and directed by Jake Scott, son of Ridley Scott.

The release follows Wednesday's early debut for a Beck's Sapphire Super Bowl ad. For more on why A-B InBev decided to release two ads early this year, check out our coverage from yesterday.
