Super Bowl commercials are coming out fast and furious and it’s not even the Super Bowl yet. The latest to be revealed is a Michelob Ultra commercial featuring actor Chris Pratt, surfer Kelly Slater, golfer Brooks Koepka and the first American woman to win the New York City Marathon in 40 years, Shalane Flanagan.
The group of physically fit individuals is shown in the 30-second spot enjoying an active lifestyle while singing the 1975 Tom T. Hall song, “I Like Beer.” It’s all part of Michelob Ultra’s “You Can Do Both” campaign, which touts that you can be fit and still enjoy beer. The commercial ends with Michelob Ultra’s slogan, Live Fit, Live Fun, Live Ultra.
“I Like Beer” is a country song that was originally recorded by Tom T. Hall and rearranged and re-recorded by country singer Jon Pardi for the Superbowl spot.
“This past year has been filled with so many milestones and bucket list items, and when Michelob Ultra reached out with an opportunity to be part of this Super Bowl commercial, I was all in,” Jon said in a statement. “It was such a fun experience to record this version of the song and it’s awesome to be a part of it.”
The “I LIke Beer” Superbowl spot is the second of two videos from Michelob Ultra featuring Pratt. In the first, dubbed The Perfect Fit, the actor begins training to get in shape to actually shoot the commercial.
You’re in luck, you don’t even have to watch the Super Bowl to see the million dollar commercials.
