Many of you are preparing to watch the Super Bowl…
I’m preparing to watch the Super Bowl commercials.
Well, as some of you know, that’s what I do… I am a commercial producer – so I cannot help myself.
But sadly – in my opinion – previously the spots were held as ‘top secret’ until their unveiling during the game – but this year, most of the Super Bowl commercials have been leaked.
Personally, I wish they would keep them a surprise but I understand how important it is for marketing to let the cat out of the bag – as it were…
How about you? Have you already seen the Budweiser commercial linked here? Last time I checked, there were almost 3 million views…
If you have seen the spot, then you will know exactly how this photo came to be… This is Tommie Turvey, trainer, and one of the stars of the commercial.
Another amazing thing about this photo is that it was taken on Wilshire Boulevard. It looks to be a very familiar AND VERY BUSY intersection – right in Westwood. I know this because I went to UCLA which is in Westwood.
i cannot even imagine stopping traffic at this intersection for any length of time. Clearly, Budweiser isn’t fooling around! So very impressive!
WHO TRAINED THE CLYDES IN THE SPOT?
Enter Tommie Turvey.
I had written about him previously but didn’t know that he trained the Clydes.
Here is his FB page where he has several ‘behind the scenes’ photos of the shoot. You should check it out!
Of course, I was looking for training tips and insider information about the horses involved… but no such luck.
However, I saw on his website (called Equine Extremist) that he has workshops and clinics at his beautiful Florida ranch.
His place was built as a TB farm so you know it is gorgeous!
These two photos did it for me…
If his horse lets him do this, well, I’m gonna watch!
I found these shots in his FB page and I immediately cut and pasted them here. I now need to go find the video that goes with them! Clearly, this is a trusting bond.
Can you imagine doing this with your horse??
NAME THE BUD CLYDE BABY CONTEST DURING THE GAME!
What a great marketing idea!!
Bud is asking the nation to name this baby…
I love shining a light on the horse for a few moments during the 2nd most viewed television program all year.
Here is the story…
ENJOY THE GAME!!!!
