We all know that half the people (maybe more than half) who watch the Super Bowl only watch for the commercials. At the end of the big game everyone has their favorites, and then there’s always those few that leave everyone wondering why that company spent so much money to have an awful commercial aired at such a crucial time.
Before this year’s game everyone was buzzing about Anna Kendrick’s non- Super Bowl commercial for Newcastle. Some wondered if the commercials during the game would live up to the hype.
The Budweiser Puppy Love commercial was one that did. It tugged on the viewers’ heartstrings. Seriously, who doesn’t love a precious little puppy? And, of course, a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and the classic Budweiser Clydesdale appeared in the commercial as well. But what we love most about the commercial is the male actor Don Jeanes.
This native Texan portrays the Clydesdale trainer in the Budweiser Puppy Love and Brotherhood Super Bowl commercials. Since landing his first role in the Budweiser Super Bowl commercial Don Jeanes has been working steadily with cameos in films such as Hell Beast, Blackout and Dark Amazon and still appearing in commercials like this one for Bacardi Cubre Libre.
Don Jeanes grew up right outside of Houston in Humble, Texas and graduated from Humble High School. This was his second consecutive appearance in the Budweiser ad during the biggest football game of the year. Personally, we hope he keeps the tradition going and is in next year’s commercial as well.
As an office that has divided opinions on the commercials, some think they were terrible, others loved them, the one thing we can all agree on is that any commercial would be better with the addition of little bit of Houston.
