Super Bowl Bud Light ad sparks corn controversy

Actor Tom Hanks attends the People's Choice Awards 2017 at Microsoft Theater

"America's corn farmers are disappointed in you", the association tweeted, adding that they would "love to discuss. the many benefits of corn" with Bud Light. We were more interested in the big-budget ads that auto companies showed - and didn't show - this year. "Bud Light, the Mountain, and a dragon-a holy trinity of epic-ness".

"Anheuser-Busch fully supports corn growers and will continue to invest in the corn industry", said a spokesman, according to Fox News. In case you missed it, the commercial is below.

The ads provided some much-needed entertainment during the lowest-scoring Super Bowl in history-especially a Bud Light ad that took a very dark turn.

Dr. Mike Roussell, who writes a nutritional blog, says HFCS is made up of approximately 45 percent glucose and 55 percent fructose.

One commercial touting Anheuser-Busch InBev's commitment to renewable energy generated buzz among Iowa's wind energy advocates, while another ad bashing corn syrup got in the ear of Iowa's corn industry.

"Bottom line: Many respectable brewers use a 'syrup, ' which is just a liquified form of starch for yeast to feast on more quickly, whether it be sugar itself, corn, rice, donuts, whatever".

Adam Collins, vice president of communications and community affairs for Chicago-based MillerCoors, chalked the Bud Light shot up to MillerCoors threatening Bud Light's market share.

"Bud Light uses rice to aid fermentation". It began when the company aired an ad during the Super Bowl dunking on Miller Light and Coors Lite for brewing with corn syrup.

"Corn syrup is not really going into the finished beer", Kirkpatrick tells TIME.

A Wall Street Journal report today reveals that the ad during the big game was envisioned as one of the higher-profile elements of a plan that also includes a global scavenger hunt as well as a blood drive, with the drive tied to a show-related theme of asking people would they "bleed for the throne"? The statement says it's up to consumers "to decide what beer is right for them".

"Said a Florida-based television meteorologist in a Tweet on Sunday, "(The) Bud Light commercial is the best thing I've seen on tv during the same so far".
