The Bud Light Party steps onto the national stage today with a mission to unite modern beer drinkers. The new campaign from America’s most inclusive beer brand will celebrate bringing people together – for fun – over a beer. The Bud Light Party is the first campaign to bring to life Bud Light’s new “Raise One to Right Now” tagline, designed to provide a unique and light-hearted Bud Light perspective on timely cultural moments – starting with Super Bowl 50.
Right now there is nothing more timely or talked about than the presidential election. At a time when debates get heated and “unfriending” is at an all-time high, The Bud Light Party offers something everyone can agree on. A party that invites everyone. A party that knows how to party. A party that isn’t a political party at all.
Leading this humor-based campaign is comedic duo Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen – the faces of The Bud Light Party. Starting with a Super Bowl ad and continuing in national broadcast and digital creative throughout the year, Schumer and Rogen will rally beer drinkers to put their differences aside and agree to agree on Bud Light.
“This is more than just a Super Bowl ad,” said Bud Light vice president Alexander Lambrecht, “it’s a completely new communication of what Bud Light stands for – inclusivity, positivity and fun. The Bud Light Party allows our brand to live in the right now.”
The campaign – created with Wieden+Kennedy New York – is the culmination of a larger effort underway to evolve the way Bud Light looks, acts and connects with modern consumers.
“Bud Light occupies such a unique place in American culture. We embraced the opportunity to work together on connecting the brand to beer drinkers in a way that’s definitely uncharted, but still very true to the brand,” said Wieden+Kennedy New York executive creative director Karl Lieberman. “With ‘Raise One to Right Now,’ Bud Light opens up real conversations with beer drinkers about the things that matter to them most.”
In December, the brand announced its plans to roll out a bold new look this spring. This redesign – the first major overhaul of Bud Light’s visual identity in eight years – includes a reimagined Bud Light logo and contemporized primary and secondary packaging. The new bottle design is featured prominently throughout The Bud Light Party campaign.
