Real Ads of Genius. Horrible "beer", great commercials. Here they are, all the Bud Light Real Men of Genius and Real American Heroes radio spots on one site ready to laugh with on mp3.

Rivaled only by the Errol Morris Miller ads.

(actually, I prefer the Miller ads, but the Real American Heroes are damn funny.)

I've got no problem with the beer, but think that the ads are completely puerile. Different strokes, I guess...

Thank you, Rev. Syung Myung Me.

Thank you.

We got those "Real Men of Genius" ads in the UK as well. When it comes to "crap beer, great ads" I'm afraid they aren't a patch on the Heineken and Carling Black Label ads shown in the UK in the 80s and 90s.

can someone tell me which clip is the one where they make fun of carb-counting, or if it's even in this list? thanks

Ziggy, that would be Mr. Over the top Carb Counter.

My husband once burnt about 15 of these to CD to listen to in the car. It was awful.

salmacis, don't forget them "australians wouln't give a (Castlemine) XXXX for anything else" ads. They were good. Dunno about the beer.

Bud Light is great for those times when you don't feel like drinking beer.

I love these ads. It should be noted that David Bickler, the former lead singer of "Survivor", does the singing.

I actually had a Bud Light over the weekend and it didn't taste as bad as I remembered. Of course, I was fairly lit up on vodka, so maybe that had something to do with it.

(Nice post.)
