Budweiser wants you to pop an ice cold can of ‘America’
If you reach for a Budweiser from now til Election Day in November, you'll be drinking America.
With both the presidential election and the Olympics coming up, Budweiser temporarily renamed its beer "America."
Why? Well, here's what creative director Tosh Hall says:
"We thought nothing was more iconic than Budweiser and nothing was more iconic than America."
And the jokes roll in:
The perfect metaphor as America becomes watered down and flavorless. https://t.co/OuuwTIInIY

"America, for a Limited Time" is what we should maybe name America https://t.co/iZJQCuVix2

There is nothing more "America" than your local craft brewer creating jobs in the community. Like @HeritageBrews which hires vets in VA.

By the way, Budweiser's headquarters are in Belgium.
