Christmas is supposed to be all about Jesus, family, and love, but somehow we seem to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season and lose sight of the things that are the most important. The season has been commercialized and is filled with catchy advertisements attempting to convince us to spend our money on one product or the other. It is a season about money and spending.
But in years past, things were a lot different. Our lives were a bit slower and the holiday season seemed to be a bit more heartwarming. This was in part due to a different type of advertising campaign.
This Budweiser commercial from 1987 features the majestic Clydesdales that they are famous for, but the focus isn’t necessarily on buying a product. It is to thank their customers for their patronage over the year.
The Clydesdales in the advertisement have been at the forefront of Budweiser advertisements for decades, and we can’t help but adore these monstrous, but graceful creatures.
Check out the video below and take a trip back in time to a day when life was quite different. Be sure to share it with your family and friends too. Here’s to hoping your holiday season is filled with all the wonderful feelings of Christmas celebrations of the past.
