Kansas corn farmers displeased with Bud Light commercial – KAKE


Sunday night’s Super Bowl recreation wasn’t a huge strike for quite a few Us citizens, and neither was the Bud Mild commercial for some corn farmers.

“This a single missed the mark I consider,” says Mark Bergkamp.

Mark Bergkamp is a Kansas corn farmer. He states Budweiser’s new advertising campaign slighting corn syrup has him baffled.

“At 1st I’m like what? You know at 1st it’s like if you are drinking beer, are you genuinely fearful about that? It is really kind of puzzling just from a advertising and marketing standpoint who they’re trying to attraction to,” states Bergkamp.

“You might not be consuming it in your Bud Gentle but you are going to be having it with your payday and pancakes, you know,” says Max Tjaden.

Clearwater farmer Max Tjaden suggests corn syrup isn’t any even worse for you than cane sugar or any other substances Bud Light’s competition use.

“I just consider their intent was to make the competitors appear lousy. We do not use corn syrup so we’re improved than you. I grew up with the widespread stage ‘he’s acquired a beer gut’ no matter whether you get it from ingesting the levels of competition or Bud Light you are still going to have it,” says Tjaden.

Anheuser-Busch launched a assertion expressing, “Bud Light’s Tremendous Bowl commercials are only meant to place out a key distinction in Bud Light from some other light-weight beers. This energy is to offer buyers transparency and elevate the beer classification.”

While the professional sparked some controversy, Kansas corn farmers is not going to be losing any business or rest in excess of it. They say they have even larger fish to fry right now.

“I am additional involved about trade issues heading on,” claims Bergkamp.
