Budweiser releases Super Bowl commercial touting wind power

Budweiser has released its new Super Bowl commercial online, and the company is using the space to call attention to its environmentally friendly brewing process.

The camera zooms out as Dylan sings the opening lines of "Blowin' in the Wind", eventually showing a sun-dappled field of rippling wheat above which wind turbines are spinning. And they're bringing along their friend April the Dalmatian. "We can't wait to get these trucks on the road, and keep leading our industry forward to a greener, smarter future in partnership with some of the world's most innovative companies". / Yes, "n" how many times must the cannon balls fly / Before they're forever banned?

The 60-second spot winds down with the Dylan singing "The answer is blowin' in the wind" followed by the words "Wind never felt better" and "Now brewed with wind power for a better tomorrow".

The commercial is meant to call attention to the fact that 100 percent of the electricity used to brew Budweiser comes from renewable energy.

Arsenal approach Inter Milan about price for Ivan Perisic
On Saturday, BBC Sport reporter David Ornstein claimed the Gunners had enquired about Perisic's availability. In the summer of 2017, Mourinho was hellbent on landing the Inter Milan star.

"It's more than just beer", Angie Slaughter, Anheuser-Busch's vice president of sustainability, told USA Today. "This commercial is for everyone".

The company is honoring the incredible milestone with a new commercial celebrating their commitment to the planet, which will be debuted for TV at the Super Bowl.

Budweiser is taking it a step further and "donating clean electricity to Atlanta to power the city the week of Super Bowl", PR Newswire reported. "It's something we should be thinking about every day".

Fine print at the close adds that "renewable electricity from wind is one type of energy we use to brew".
