Mines 12 inches long, what's yours

AdvantagesInstantly recognisable product

DisadvantagesGone downhill since Frank and Louie

"...was a tad dissapointed when Budweiser introduced their next campaign. But it soon started tongues wagging (in more ways than one). Simply put - "Wazzup". The campaign had various situations of a group of friends ringing each other up, screaming "Wazzup!" down the phone and saying they were watching a game, drinking a bud - whether they were at home, or actually at the game. Simplicity itself. What Budweiser probably weren't expecting was the way ..." Read review

Bud.dy Good Ads

Advantagesexcellent product awareness, clever ads

Disadvantagesnothing - can I have my free bottle please

"...a 'Bud' ! Well the Budweiser company have most definately marketed their beer very well. There is hardly a bar in the UK that you can't see a group of lads - and girls - with bottle of Bud in hand. Other 'trendy' designer beers may come and go, but Bud seems to be as popular as ever. The companies TV Campaigns have been memorable, if quirky. First one I remember is the Budweiser Frogs. Remember those, some might say cute, frogs on the bank making ..." Read review

Louis the Lizard learns Wassssup.

AdvantagesVery funny - Very clever.

DisadvantagesNone.

"... If you haven’t seen the Budweiser adverts then the start of this opinion will not mean anything to you at all. But, that will probably also mean that you have been on another planet for the past few months, so you probably don’t know what Budweiser is either. The ad men at Budweiser have been really clever here. For the past few months they have been running two simultaneous sets of adverts for Budweiser beer, with totally different ..." Read review

'Wassup' with these set of adverts?

AdvantagesGood production values as always.

DisadvantagesWe're in the UK, we couldn't care less about the great American contradiction.

"Oh dear....generally the Budweiser series of adverts have been hit-and-miss. The set of adverts that were inspired from the film 'Delicatessen' (the man trying to swot a fly whilst jumping on a bed whilst others are doing menial things in synchronised rhythm) are generally a miss. Whilst the talking frogs/sadistic lizards series were fantastic and very original and were undoubtedly a hit. While saving us for the treat that are the 'Wassup' series ..." Read review

you are so beautiful, bud...

Advantagesrefreshing, smooth, moreish

Disadvantagestoads look good

"...her my heart, my all... Ah, Budweiser beer makes a guy feel reallllllllly special, in a dozy sort of way. That toad, tumbling between car wheels as i watched, her throat ballooning out, belching her protest as she raised two fingers at the errant car driver, was as ugly as sin normally. But hey, Bud makes you wistful, ok? This is a 440ml can, and it's appealing to my sense of colour: the red/white/gold livery of the aluminium making me think ..." Read review

BUDDIES

AdvantagesLizards are funky

DisadvantagesShort

"...expects something good from the Budweiser adverts, as it's sort of become tradition. Firstly i got addicted to the cool, cute adverts when their stars were the three frogs, saying BUD WEIS ER!each, then there was the two lizards that i've had as a screensaver on my pc that still makes me laugh, more recently we had the either hate or love chilling out having a bud advert with wwwwaaaaaaaaaassssssssssssssssss uuuuuuuuuuuuuupppppppppppppppp! in between(so ..."

Advantagesfunny at first, but boring now

Disadvantagesnone

"...and their endeavours against the Budweiser Frogs, as they where funnier and more lasting in the memory, and altogether much better adverts. I just hope Budweiser drop these ads and bring in some new ideas. ..." Read review

couldnt they be wiser

Advantagesmemorable

Disadvantagesout dated, boring

"...same theme. Remember the Budweiser frogs? Remember how annoying those adverts became? Well it seems that the company deicded that as the 'whass upp' idea caught on, they can produce several more adverts and us, the audience, will love them. How wrong could they be? I have to congratulate the people who think these adverts up, as they manage to promote the product very well. however, they also manage to make us hate them. Original and funny the ..." Read review

Mister Foot-long Hotdog Inventor

AdvantagesVery funny, well thought out.

DisadvantagesNone.

"...when I thought, "Yes!! The Budweiser Comercials" ,only to find that nobody has written about Mister Foot-long Hotdog Inventor or Mister Wrecking Ball Operator. These adverts are so funny, even better than the lizard. In fact, my friend's little girl finds them so funny that she asked me to find out the words to the entire Hotdog advert so that I could sing it to her(which ofcourse, I did). The funny thing about them is not the voice over guy ..." Read review

funny but annoying

Advantagesfunny advert

Disadvantagesannoying after a while

"...just entered my home. The Budweiser adverts are brilliant and funny, I'll not bother describing them because unless you've been in outer space or don't own a TV you'll have seen at least one. They are also a goldmine for all the mobile phone operators and BT. My son and husband find it hilarious to sit upstairs and ring our house phone, normally when I'm busy, then when I rush to pick up the phone I'm greeted by Wasssup and a fit of giggles. ..."

Very clever indeed

AdvantagesFunny

Disadvantagesnone except getting everyone saying "wassssuuupp" all the time

"...a huge fan of the Budweiser frogs. I thought the adverts were superbly done, funny, and had an ongoing storyline that kept people wanting to see them - will Louie kill the frogs!! When they finished (with one of the best ads!) I started to wonder whether they'd continue the frog theme, or go for something completely different. I'll be the first to admit that I immediately thought that it was impossible to come up with something as funny as the ..." Read review

Whaaazzzzzzuuuuuuup

Advantages

Disadvantages

"What an incredible ad campaign that was. Everyone in North America is saying "Whaaaazzzzuuuuupp" I can't believe the impact this ad has created. The important part is that everyone remember that it is a Bud commercial. Most catchy ads go around the world but no one really remembers what the ad was for. I just got married in July and every speech made that night began with the now infamous "Whaaaazzzzzuuuuup" and ended with the click of a nice cold ..." Read review

wassssssup!!

AdvantagesThe adverts done its job

Disadvantageseveryones saying it!

"...come up with the idea. Budweiser always seem to come up with adverts that you 'store' in your brain. Like the toads, people would always remember the toads going 'bud-weis-er' and you'd hear people saying it. You assosiate it with a brand and when you hear it, it makes you want to go buy it... well thats the general idea anyway! The new advert with the blokes all yelling 'wassssup' down the phone is brilliant. I've heard loads of people going ..." Read review

AdvantagesMake you laugh

DisadvantagesNone

"...of laughter. Have you seen the Budweiser website??? You can download the 'Wassup' ads..there are quite a few of them now....and you can even send the 'Wassup' logo to your mobile phone free of charge. Have a look at it - at www.budweiser.com (The couple of times i have visited it the server was really fast). These Bud ads are perhaps the best ones on tv at the moment....keep them coming! ..."
