Budweiser’s Tweet Featured in Super Bowl Commercial
Beer brand Budweiser has launched its first-ever Twitter account – www.twitter.com/budweiser.
The brand marked the occasion with Budweiser Clydesdales – tweeting the first photo of a member of the “Budweiser Clydesdales Class of 2013,” a beautiful 150-pound baby born the morning of Jan. 16. It was the brand’s first-ever Tweet.
Using #clydesdales, Budweiser also is asking Twitter followers of @Budweiser and Facebook friends to help name the young equine star, who will be seen by an estimated 110+ million viewers next Sunday during Super Bowl XLVII.
“This newest member of the Budweiser Clydesdale family was 7 days old on the day this part of the Super Bowl commercial was filmed,” said Jeff Knapper, general manager of Clydesdale operations. “A star was truly born on Jan. 16.”

More than 30 baby Clydesdales are expected to be born this year at the 300-acre Warm Springs Ranch, the state-of-the-art breeding facility for the Budweiser Clydesdales in Boonville, Mo.
On Super Bowl Sunday on Feb. 3, the Budweiser Clydesdales will appear in a new 60-second spot, “Brotherhood,” which chronicles the bond a Clydesdale foal shares with his trainer.
Partially shot at Warm Springs Ranch, “Brotherhood” will take the Clydesdales advertising into new territory by providing a new level of access to their early years.
This is the Clydesdale’s 23rd Super Bowl spot since first appearing in a big game spot in 1986.
