If you’re going to drink beer (idk why), this is the beer to drink. Budweiser has announced that starting this summer, it will remove the word “Budweiser” from all of its labels and replace it with “America.” Because nothing screams “I’m scared about the future of our country due to this impending presidential election” like drinking a beer called America.
Starting May 23, cans and bottles of the beer will be inscribed with patriotic pledges such as the Statue of Liberty, phrases from the Pledge of Allegiance and lyrics from “America the Beautiful” and “The Star Spangled Banner.”
The best part of this weird PR stunt: Budweiser is actually based in Belgium. Whoops.
You have to admit, it’s nice to have the excuses in your back pocket. “Sorry, boss, I drank too much America at lunch and I can’t work anymore bye.”
You can’t deny that. It’s patriotic.
