Harry Caray, this Bud’s for you.
NEW YORK >> Harry Caray, this Bud’s for you.
Anheuser-Busch is honoring the legendary sportscaster with a video that has him calling the nailbiting end of Game 7 in the early hours of Thursday, when the Chicago Cubs edged the Cleveland Indians in 10 innings.
The ad shows the statue of Caray outside Wrigley Field and tense fans in bars, his deep voice intoning, “Boy, if you have a weak heart, turn the set off. The rest of you, stay with us!”
Then it cuts to fans celebrating, and Carey saying “Holy Cow! You talk about a mass of happy humanity. How about those Cubbies? Now our lives are complete!”
Caray died in 1998 having not seen his beloved Cubbies even make it to the World Series.
The brewer also resuscitated 1984 Budweiser ad in which the Bud pitchman, and Bud lover, caught a cold one launched into the Wrigley Field bleachers using a net.
