Our friends at Captain Morgan invited us down to Orlando, Florida over the weekend for the official launch of Captain Morgan Cannon Blast, and it was an explosive event.. literally!
To welcome the newest addition to the Captain Morgan line up, the brand hosted its first-ever Cannon Blast Bar Crawl. This adventurous spectacle took over the Wall Street Plaza in Downtown Orlando, where human cannonball Brian Miser, for the first time ever, performed multiple blasts between various bars from different cannons on the same day.
With a name like Cannon Blast, it seemed only fitting that Captain Morgan blasted someone out of a cannon, and they sought out the best of the best cannonballer in Miser. He’s a professional who has performed more than 6,500 blasts and is the mastermind behind building the cannon, which is meticulously crafted with years of circus secrets.
As you can see in the video above, Miser accelerated to 65 miles per hour, flying 110 feet before hitting the landing pad. And after completing his first blast, he did it all over again to complete the Bar Crawl. You know, because walking from one bar to another is so passé..
“Never in all my years did I think that my talents would be leveraged to launch a new shot brand. To be a part of this experience and bring this type of entertainment to the bar scene is very exciting and showcases the level of fun behind everything related to Cannon Blast,” said Miser.
If you haven’t tried Captain Morgan Cannon Blast, the ‘shot to end all shots’, you’re in for a real treat! Cannon Blast features an intensely delicious blend of Caribbean rum and unique bold spices, providing drinkers with a blast of citrus sweet flavor, followed by a spark of unexpected heat.
Captain Morgan Cannon Blast is delicious as a chilled shot, or as part of a cocktail. We got to sample quite a few cocktails over the weekend (responsibly, of course), and my favorite was a combination of Cannon Blast and Crown Royal Regal Apple. I forget what it was called, but man was it good!
So what are you waiting for? Pick up a bottle of Cannon Blast today (which comes in an awesome cannonball shaped bottle that glows in the dark when lit with a black light), and let us know what you think of it.
Bud Light Kicks Off The Football Season With Two New ‘Dilly Dilly’ Spots
I don’t know about you, but I just cannot get enough of those hilarious Bud Light Dilly Dilly commercials. And lucky for us, Bud Light is back with two new “Dilly Dilly” ads to celebrate the long-awaited return of the NFL football season.
Bud Lights For Everyone:
During the college football kickoff weekend, Bud Light previewed this spot, which depicts our regal King gifting his kingdom’s loyal habitants with his favorite light lager, Bud Light, when one of the pub patrons asks for a mead. The ad highlights the one friend in every group who tries to show off their sophisticated palette, even when it contradicts the group’s preference.
This commercial introduces two new characters from the neighboring kingdom, Count and Countess Pamplemousse. The Pamplemousse’s represent the snobby friends you always seem to invite to a party. Royal Affair celebrates Bud Light as the light lager of choice for a large group of friends (and foes).
Here’s hoping that these two are just the first in a long line of Dilly Dilly commercials that run throughout the season!
Busch Light Gets In On The Pumpkin Spice Latte Craze With ‘Busch Latte’
Last week, Starbucks announced that they were bringing back their Pumpkin Spice Latte, and Busch Light wasted no time in getting in on the action by temporarily rebranding Busch Light as Busch Latte, and sharing a photo of the new can on Twitter.
As expected, Twitter lost their collective minds, with people rushing out to score some Busch Latte of their very own. The only problem? It’s not real. No, it’s just a clever marketing stunt that pokes fun at the PSL craze. Well played Busch Light!
But they didn’t stop there. In addition to the photoshopped Busch Latte cans on Twitter, they also rolled out a series of mobile #BuschLatte billboards in St Louis, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago, parking outside of various Starbucks for the ultimate in trolling.
While you can’t get your hands on any physical Busch Latte cans, you can snag some sweet Busch Latte merch here, with a selection of shirts and coozies to choose from.
Here’s hoping that AB actually released some Busch Latte cans, as I’d definitely buy them! 🙂
Bud Light Victory Fridges To Reward Fans Upon Cleveland Browns’ First Win
To say that the Cleveland Browns have been on a losing streak would be putting it mildly. The team has only won a single game in the past two seasons. In fact, Johnny Manziel was the last quarterback to win a game for the Browns. Pretty crazy, right?
Bud Light believes in the Browns though, and to show their support they’ve rolled out a bunch of Victory Fridges across various Cleveland watering holes, filled with ice-cold Bud Light. The only catch? These fridges are currently locked.
Featuring a smart-technology, all of the Victory Fridges will simultaneously unlock after the Browns capture their first regular-season victory and snap their winless streak, giving fans 21 and over the chance to enjoy the sweet taste of victory together. Dilly Dilly!
“The Bud Light Browns ‘Victory Fridge’ is a fun way to celebrate and reward a fanbase that has never wavered in enthusiasm or dedication for their team no matter what happens. We’re proud to show our support for Cleveland, and we’re always looking to bring NFL fans and friends together for memorable experiences. It’s going to be fun to be part of the celebration when the team earns their first victory of the season,” said Andy Goeler, Vice-President of Marketing, Bud Light.
Here’s hoping that Bud Light has a good shelf life, because I just don’t see the Browns’ losing streak ending anytime soon. 🙂
