"This attack especially hits home at a time when farmers are hurting due to challenging economic conditions".

The ad shows scenes from the second world war, moon landing and Oklahoma bombing, as Hanks says: "When we go off to war, when we exercise our rights, when we soar to our greatest heights". "For Bud Light, that meant letting us do something that only Game of Thrones can do-a public execution of their main character", says Paull.

HBO "wanted to surprise the roughly 100 million people expected to tune in to Super Bowl and turn an ad for another brand into a show promo", the Wall Street Journal article notes. "Miller Lite has been gaining share for 17 straight quarters & someone's feeling the heat!" In fact, 12-ounce cans of Bud Light and Miller Lite list zero grams of sugar, while Coors Light lists 1 gram.

And Peter Marino, chief communications officer for MillerCoors, said the ad was like the pot calling the kettle black. "Bud Light felt like a natural fit, and they jumped at the opportunity". Literal corn syrup. dumped into flavorless beer. Corn syrup and rice act as sweeteners for beer.

Anheuser-Busch said it "fully supports" corn growers and will continue to invest in the industry.
