retail news in context, analysis with attitude

These days, it seems like Anheuser-Busch is getting more mileage out of dog-themed commercials than those with Clydesdales.

Such is the case again this week, with this new commercial featuring a man and his yellow lab which simultaneously promotes Budweiser beer and delivers an anti-drunk driving message. It's already had more than 16 million views on YouTube.

I just think it's good work … and besides, I'm a sucker for a yellow lab. (We have two at home - a purebred named Buffett, and a mixed bred rescue dog named Parker. Names that anyone who has read MNB for any length of time will appreciate.)
