Budweiser - Only the Best for Fred

January 30, 2000 | :30

An advertising spoof that packs in a dog, a what-the? moment in the middle, and a funny twist at the end with some modest special effects: This is what you picture when you think of a Budweiser Super Bowl ad. “Only the Best for Fred” by DDB Chicago was the “best part” of Anheuser-Busch’s zoo of animal-themed ads in Super Bowl XXXIV, ad columnist Stuart Elliott wrote then in The New York Times, picking it above USA Today Ad Meter winner "Cry, Rex." 

For a potential relative of this ad's narrator, stick around through the end of Honda's "A New Truck to Love" in 2016.
