    All right fellas, I don't know if I'm seeing things, but no one I've talked to remembers the Budweiser commercial I saw last night during the Giants game. I'm in the Eastern time zone, so not sure it was viewed everywhere but here was the premise (from what I remember.)

    A woman sits at a bar alone with a political button on her dress - and it might even had been a political rally of some sort (this part I'm unsure of as the commercial didn't really catch my attention until the end.)

    Anyway, there are two draft beers on the bar - a dark and a light. A guy appears, placing a bottle Budweiser in between the two drafts and says something along the lines, "Do you prefer dark or light?"

    Then the guy turns to the camera and says, "What? What did you think I was talking about?"

    Immediately I wondered if I had seen what I thought I saw. Did anyone else see this commercial?

    Truly tasteless. Sort of like Budweiser...

    I'm now wishing I would have recorded it, because I can't seem to find it anywhere. And I doubt it ever airs again.

    Yes, I saw it too and wasn't sure what exactly had been said until I thought about it and put it all together with the light or dark comment. How is that supposed to sell beer? Is it some kind of political satire?

    Dallas' final drive made about as much sense as that commercial.

    ok, so i'm not crazy - good to know

    i don't think it was meant to sell beer at all - come to think of it, i don't recall a budweiser commercial that ever made me want to run out and buy a beer

    i'm with BigJ on this one - tasteless

    Are the Clintons major shareholders?
