We had to bring it back!
With so much sh*t being advertised to us on a daily basis, it's incredibly hard to make a video that truly stands out. There are very few commercials you will remember in 20 minutes, let alone 20 years from now.
That's where Budweiser comes in. In 1999 they created arguably the greatest Superbowl commercial of all time and nearly 20 years later "Wasssup" is still remembered as a "social phenomenon."
All of us here at Live Bearded vividly remember running around in middle school & high school, and college saying "wasssup" to all of my brothers.
It was hilarious, and a lot of fun! So, when we had the idea to make a Live Bearded version, we knew we had to do it. We felt it would be an awesome way to bring it back, have some fun and pay homage to the original.
Anytime we make a video like this, our #1 goal is to have as much fun as possible and make you laugh your face off! This was actually the first video we made after hiring our badass videographer Jon and I think he did an amazing job on his first project. What do you think, how did we do?
Based on the thousands of likes, shares, and comments we've received, it looks like we hit the nail on the head with this one! In fact, while Adam (one of our customer service specialists) was reading through the comments on our FB post, he saw one comment that jumped out at him.
After some investigation, we realized the comment was from Scott Brooks, aka "Dookie" from the original commercial! And if that wasn't cool enough, Dookie now has an EPIC beard! Adam reached out to him and sent him a little care package as a small token of our appreciation for the original video.
A week or so later, while we were with the whole team in Colorado for Beer'd Fest, Scott posted this on Facebook...
How freaking awesome is that! We were blown away and super fired up when we got it, and since we were all hanging out as a team we commented on his post with this...
We had a great time making the video, and now everyone in our office is running around saying "wasssup!" all the damn time, it's freaking awesome. Have an amazing day brother, and drop us a comment below and let us know what you think. We love hearing your thoughts and honest feedback. Until next time, Live Bearded brother!
