Bud Light touches nerve with corn syrup Super Bowl ads

Confetti falls onto the field after Super Bowl LIII at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The spot combined HBO's Game of Thrones with Bud Light for a jousting match, which saw The Mountain crush Bud Knight's skull just like Oberyn Martell's (noooooooo) before one of Daenerys's dragons flies overhead to scorch the entire arena.

"They're clearly trying to resonate with younger consumers and using the partnership with Game of Thrones to do that", Calkins said. The ad makes it clear to viewers that both Miller Lite and Coors Light use corn syrup in their US-sold beers while Bud Light does not.

The National Corn Growers Association rebuked the brand for boasting that Bud Light does not use the ingredient.

"America's corn farmers are disappointed in you", it said. Our office is right down the road!
