Teased earlier, Budweiser released the full “Hero’s Welcome” spot a few days before the game. The doc-style ad chronicles Lt. Chuck Nadd’s homecoming from Afghanistan. According to Budweiser, while Nadd expected a welcome from his girlfriend, he arrived to find the residents of his hometown of Winter Park, Florida, a full ticker tape parade, marching bands, and the Budweiser Clydesdales waiting for him. The spot was originally slated to be 30 seconds but was bumped up to 60 seconds and there’s also a five-minute behind-the-scenes video. Budweiser now has four minutes of ad space in the game.
Budweiser doubles down on the adorable with another heartstrings-pulling spot featuring the Clydesdales. Last year’s “Brotherhood” was a big hit and an emotional moment amid the usual broad humor of Super Bowl ads. So Budweiser and agency Anomaly, creator of last year’s ad, brought back the Clydesdales, and the trainer, played by Don Jeanes, and added a puppy and another killer track “Let Her Go” by Passenger.
While Deutsch L.A. created VW’s past hits like “The Force” and “The Dog Strikes Back,” this year marked the first outing for Argonaut, an agency launched by Goodby, Silverstein & Partners alums Hunter Hindman and Rick Condos. The spot reimagines a classic bit of dialog from It’s a Wonderful Life (only with more Germans). Read more about the spot here. See the teaser here.

Los Angeles, CA -
She’s BACK! Julie Chang is back on the air at Good Day LA for the first time since having brain surgery in November. She had a brain tumor removed and got engaged all within a month, and she feels a new sense of gratitude. She thanks all the fans for support and warm messages.
Julie says, “To put it simply, California saved my life.” Had she not moved here from New York, she would have never taken up surfing. Julie was on her board on a very calm night with the sun setting and admiring the view. During that time, the board had drifted out on its own, and when she looked forward, it banged her face. When she got a CT scan on the black eye, and during that scan is when the radiologist found the brain tumor.
The tumor was the size of her fist and had been there for a long time. When they found it was benign, it was the greatest piece of news she’s ever received.
Julie says she is almost 100% back to normal, with the exception of vision.
She says it doesn’t hurt to have a MRI if you think something is wrong. She was on really strong migraine pills, which she felt was masking what was really going on.
