Mercedes-Benz Is Giving Someone A Car This Sunday

Mercedes-Benz is making football fans happy this week. They have developed a modern digital take on a classic challenge.  Using smartphones, thousands of Mercedes fans are invited to compete by placing their finger on an AMG that will be moving across their smartphone screen throughout the Super Bowl (and potentially beyond).

The rules are simple: You take your finger off, you’re out. The last person touching the car, wins it.

“Last Fan Standing” will test gamers’ stamina and determination as the car encounters different terrain and obstacles, challenging even the most athletic finger to stay in contact with the car on screen. As players drop out, a live counter will show the number remaining and how long they’ve managed to hang onto the C43.

The competition kicks off at 6:30 p.m on February 4.  Those interested in testing their skills will be able to register on game day at lastfanstanding.mbusa.com.

Could We See A Goose This Super Sunday?

Looks like Goose Island Beer might be featured this Sunday. Goose Island has always been inspired to dream as big as the city it grew up in. 30 years in, the folks at Goose decided they’re ready to tackle the world’s biggest stage, the Super Bowl. So, they threw the big guys over at Anheuser-Busch a hail mary.

The two guys in the spot, Greg Hall and Todd Ahsmann, epitomize the buddy-story. Best friends since first grade, they’ve been with Goose since day one; Greg, as co-founder, Todd as bartender in the original brew pub. 30 years later, Todd is president of Goose with Greg right by his side as they swing big for the brand.

Budweiser Will Stand By You

There is going to be an emotional ad this Sunday. Budweiser, no stranger to the Super Bowl stage, is proud to turn the spotlight on its employees, who together over the past 30 years have helped provide over 79 million cans of clean drinking water in response to natural disasters as part of the Anheuser-Busch emergency water program.

Set to Skylar Grey’s rendition of the iconic song “Stand by Me,” custom recorded and performed just for Budweiser, the commercial takes viewers into Budweiser’s Cartersville, Georgia brewery (home of the emergency water program) and features Kevin Fahrenkrog, General Manager of the brewery and an Anheuser-Busch employee for nearly 30 years.

On the heels of the 30th anniversary of the company’s emergency water program, Anheuser-Busch is also announcing a long term commitment for natural disaster relief by adding its Ft. Collins, Colorado brewery to the emergency water program by the end of the year. Adding a second brewery to can and deliver safe, drinking water will increase the speed of response when natural disasters hit.
