Given what they’ve recently been involved in per the news I’m a little surprised to see Budweiser step up to the plate these days, but they did. Along with Folds of Honor and Star Wars star (and vet) Adam Driver they helped a family who needed it.
Given their recent very left-wing Superbowl commercial this is a breath of fresh air, really.
As written for YoungCons by Warner Todd Huston:
American beer giant Budweiser has launched a heartwarming video as part of its “Folds of Honor” program which provides scholarships to families of wounded or fallen military veterans.
The new video featuring Star Wars actor Adam Driver was posted to Budweiser’s Facebook page.
“After leaving the military,” the Facebook page notes, “Adam Driver fulfilled his dream of becoming an actor. He helped us deliver another dream to a family who has sacrificed for their country and for each other.”
The Budweiser “Folds of Honor” program was able to help Hayley with her schooling. But the beer maker went even farther for the Williams family.
This new video is a far cry from the left-wing, open borders ad they played during the Super Bowl.
For the Superbowl, Budweiser created a pro-immigration commercial; the story of founder Adolphus Busch, and it was very much meant to have political undertones. The difference, however, is that Conservatives and Republicans take issue with illegal immigrants, with illegal being the keyword there.
It’s a bit of a stretch to compare the timeline of Adolphus Busch to that of today’s issues. The aired just days after President Donald Trump announced his Travel Ban from seven Muslim-majority countries.
Though the company did state that the ad had already been in the works and was simply meant to highlight the founder of the company and his “unrelenting pursuit of the American dream”.
