Bud Light uses rice instead of corn syrup in its fermenting process, but does it matter what type of starch or sweetener is used?

In Bud Light's first ad, the Bud Light King, Bud Knight and friends are trying to figure out what to do with a corn syrup barrel that was erroneously delivered to them. They made a decision to call up Bud Light and its agency Wieden+Kennedy New York.

It's not the way you'd expect to start the week, but Bud Light, the patron saint of fraternities nationwide, finds itself embroiled in a freaky feud with the corn industry. "Our office is right down the road!"

As you can see, MillerCoors fired a serious shot by pointing out that its products don't contain high-fructose corn syrup, while some of Anheuser-Busch InBev's do.

As if it weren't clear already, the ad ends with the line, "Bud Light, brewed with no corn syrup". "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.

Donald Trump Jr. has slammed the Washington Post's $10million Super Bowl commercial that paid tribute to slain journalists and highlighted the often-dangerous work the media does. "Miller Lite has been gaining share for 17 straight quarters & someone's feeling the heat!"

To create the co-branded spot, Wieden & Kennedy collaborated with HBO's agency, Droga5. "Things that make you go hmmmmm", he wrote on Twitter.

"We fully support corn growers and will continue to invest in the corn industry".

In two commercials that aired during Sunday night's Super Bowl LIII, the makers of Bud Light and Budweiser managed to create excitement and disdain for two of Iowa's biggest industries. "This effort is to provide consumers transparency and elevate the beer category".
