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.
