The National Corn Growers Association wasn’t impressed by the Anheuser Busch Super Bowl ad that was meant to portray Bud Light’s ingredients of water, barley, rice and hops as superior, Fortune reports.
The ad lit up Twitter, with commentary continuing the day after.
First, here’s the ad.
Here’s the National Corn Growers Association response to the ad.
.@BudLight America’s corn farmers are disappointed in you. Our office is right down the road! We would love to discuss with you the many benefits of corn! Thanks @MillerLight and @CoorsLite for supporting our industry. https://t.co/6fIWtRdeeM— National Corn (NCGA) (@NationalCorn) February 4, 2019
Here’s some of the back and forth on Twitter.
I've been wondering how to get a list of all the corn farmers on Twitter. @budlight did it for me.— Tricia Braid (@agchick) February 4, 2019
C’mon @budlight you’re using rice for the glucose so the yeast has a fermentable sugar to consume; just as other brewers are using corn for the glucose. If corn glucose is bad why isn’t rice glucose? Don’t use fear to sell your products, it’s not cool anymore. #BoycottBudlight— Dan Preissler (@NebFarmerDan) February 4, 2019
