Budweiser's Mayor of Nowhere
Sometimes I wonder what people who work forty hours or more a week for an insufficient living think about beer ads. Sometimes I wonder what people in impoverished nations would think about these ads if they could see them. And sometimes I wonder what the hell goes through the minds of people who make and approve of these ads- and what is in the minds of the YouTube knuckle-draggers who love them.
And sometimes I just wonder what Budweiser could be doing INSTEAD of building a town for this jackass to be mayor of (I'm assuming Budweiser really is doing this because, well, this is America and this is a totally believable thing for a beer company to be doing in America.) Like, how many people it could be feeding. Or how many more people it could be hiring. You know, stupid non-beer and non-HILARIOUS stuff like that.
And then I just shake my head, write a blog post, and try to forget that I live in the richest country on Earth- a country in which millions of people work forty hours or more a week for an insufficient living. A country which cheers self-indulgent, stupid garbage like this.
