Bud Light has cooked up a hilarious Super Bowl LVIII ad, featuring some big names like Post Malone, Peyton Manning, and Dana White. In this 60-second spot, a fan wearing a Manning jersey accidentally summons the “Bud Light Genie” while reaching for a cold bottle of Bud Light in his fridge. The Genie, dressed in a cheesy track suit, offers up some wishes. The trio’s wishes range from wanting 80s metal hair to being invisible and having giant biceps. They even wish for a sweet ride and Bud Lights for everyone in the bar. Manning’s fan wishes for Manning to be his best friend, and, like magic, Manning appears at their table to the tune of Steppenwolf’s 1968 classic “Magic Carpet Ride.”
Midway through the ad, a wish for Post Malone to join the party brings the bearded singer and Bud Light superfan to the late-night gathering. Post Malone flashes his custom diamond grill in a selfie with one of the pals. The ad ends with the one-armed character wishing to be at a UFC fight, and Dana White tells him he needs another bicep to enter the octagon.
As Manning calls for a house party, Malone raises a bottle of Bud Light to the crowd while standing on a balcony with an electric guitar. The ad concludes with a T-Rex crashing the party, fulfilling Malone’s wish. This playful commercial follows last year’s ad featuring actor Miles Teller and his wife Keleigh dancing. Bud Light faced criticism in 2023 after sending a promotional can to a trans influencer, sparking backlash from conservative media outlets and artists like Kid Rock, Travis Tritt, and John Rich.
