One Response to “Fred, Barney and Mr. Slate enjoy a Busch Beer!”

    I know this footage was meant to be seen by Busch employees only but it’s still totally unbelievable that someone gave permission for these beloved children’s characters to promote beer. They promoted cigars too so who knows how much green was offered before the cavemen caved. I’s like how it used to be for celebrities when it was really creepy for them to appear in commercials so they used to make foreign commercials in hopes that no one in the US would see them. But a drunk at Fred and Barney takes that concept much farther.

    The dialog is really awful but everyone who saw this was probably too drunk to notice.

    I absolutely love the sparkling arm and hand that come in at 3:18 symbolizing the calming effect Busch has on the brain.

    I love the kind of graphics that are in the opening. I absolutely love the announcer’s voice too. He was all over commercials in the 60s and 70s.
