It's Not Wind Dog!

Published on .

Now that Bud Light has gotten total hell for the dog-biting-the-crotch spot, not to mention the flatulent horse-come on, did you ever meet a horse that wasn't flatulent?-we have a new appreciation of the subtle use of animals in laddie beer advertising. And this Coors Light "Wingdog" spot, part of the "Musical Ambassador Campaign," following up a "Wingman" bit, is not only comparatively subtle, it's driven by an emo-drenched acoustic guitar ditty. Outside of the lyrical reference to a "9-inch tail," this spot could probably pass muster even with Mel Gibson's father. And that falsetto "Wingdog" hook just makes us wanna sing the brews.
