Thanks! Share it with your friends!
Original Budweiser Frogs Commercial
Those frogs must love that beer.
I remember this as a kid in the 90’s and when everyone use to drink budweiser!
Best. Commercial. Ever. Now we have to deal with the fucking shit ad agencies that make garbage like the iphone and Geico ads. I miss the days when TV ads didn’t suck a truckload of dicks.
not as cute as i remembered, but thanks for posting!
i remember watching this growing up in the 90s!!! dammm takes me back
Bring them back, along with Louie the Lizard.
Homage a Rainier
Why can’t modern adverts be this entertaining?
ITS 4 IN THE MORNING AND IM WATCHING THIS!?
I love this commercial lol
sale dropped 2%
Actually the Egyptians drank beer long before budweiser. @Adol666 your comment is laughable. Why is everything about sheeple and wolves nowadays? The Egyptians used it to keep their slaves working and fed (on account of the barley and yeast) bro you need to hit up wikipedia. If this is brain washing ill take a bud to wash my brain down any day. At least it’s not cigarettes. Now thats for sheeple. Relax have a beer bro. Your satanic username doesn’t impress anyone.
When you produce beer thats 49% rice you need slick marketing videos like this to brain wash the sheeple into thinking you make good beer.
I was in middle school when this commercial came out. So every time we had a substitute teacher or the teacher would leave the room, the class would divide its self and we’d do this to bother the teacher.. Wow, life was great then… So much fun..
whatever happened to the ad where they all had their tongues stuck to a can of Budweiser, while shivering in a freezer? or was that the chameleons? “bu-u-u-u-ud” “wei-i-i-i-s” “u-u-u-r-r-r-r” lol! that was funny!
Mind = blown
Budweiser ripped this idea of from a Rainier beer comerical that came out close to 20 years before this one. find the video on you tube. Shame on you and your crappy beer, Budweiser.
I don’t drink, but these guys were still a big part of my nostalgic life.
I’d probably cite this and the sequel commercials as the best things TV made in this era.
thumbs up if your watching this in 2012
Who cares! I just like the ad
@SuperNigel666 August Busch IV spearheaded the widely popular ‘talking frogs’ advert campaign for Bud and the successful ‘I Love You Man’ advert camp for Bud Lite, both of which were credited with lifting sales. In ’97, 2 years after the irreverent, youth-oriented advert campaigns were launched, annual worldwide beer vol eclipsed 100 million barrels for the first time, as Bud sales moved measurably upward.
Have to respectfully disagree with you on the advert being a flop. B4 ’95 when these came out, Bud was losing sales. Bud was becoming “my dads beer” and these adverts turned that image around (21 to 27 crowd, some say younger, but thats another story). This worked with the demographic and sales turned around with a new younger branding image (merch sales up 50%). 3rd where other adverts fail is there was no doubt what the frogs were selling, cant say that for tons of other ads.
The sales of Budweiser never increased, the advert was actually a flop!!!
My gay friends sodomized each others’ fuckholes and tied up all their penises so they could compress the semen, and they stuck budweizer bottles up their highly orgasmic buttholes since it is just pleasurable to get the bottle thrst effect. We squirted diarrhea into the beer bottles, that we even played a prank by taking the bottles to bottle return at a grocery store.
I bet Larry Craig could thrust his semen up a beer bottle in an airport bathroom.
Excellent commercial. Launched a series of highly memorable commercials that I’m sure sold a lot of beer. It’s been a while since they have been retired, its time they make a cameo ad.
friggin subliminal messaging!!! I love this commercial
best advert ever
I loved this advert, bring it back!
Did anyone notice that after the frogs put the word together for the first time someone says “cool”? Subliminal advertising at it’s finest.
Oh my god!!!! I love this commercial
I guesse puppets really do give things so much more appeal.
this does make me want budweiser pretty bad
I miss this commercial
A bit of trivia: This was directed by Gore Verbinski, director of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. (1, 2, 3.)
@madnessyoucanhum, no way, the lizards were fine. They had to add something, the frogs by themselves were fun for a little bit but they got real borring.
Was it really the 90’s? Im so old.
every ad campaign runs it’s course. Spuds Mckenzie got old too.
Its these sort of commercials that made it attractive for me to binge drink at age 14 ftw
Thumbs up if Los Campesinos! brought you here 🙂
ROTFL how 35 people DISLIKE this video…either they just don’t get it, or have 0 sense of humor…haha….wow, to think they actually took the time to get mad, then click the Thumbs down button after seeing this just makes me laugh….GREAT COMMERCIAL…I LOVE IT… always will!
I stopped drinking Budweiser after they killed the frogs off. Bring the Frogs back!
No! The lizard that sounds like George Castanza from Seinfeld.
@AllieRX87 You’re right. Those damn lizards screwed everything up. They should of killed them off instead and kept the frogs. Don’t know a good thing until it hits them in the face??? Bad move Budweiser, bad move indeed.
Oh my God!! I remember this!!!!!!
