Hey Ump, This Bud's For You!

Posted By on Tue, May 12, 2009 at 11:55 AM

Props to Walkoff Walk for unearthing this goofy, dated Budweiser commercial from the '80s. 

The old school faux-Royals/Cardinals uniforms, the stubby Bud bottles, the instantly recognizable shot of Busch Stadium, and the fact that the coach is probably winking at the ump because he just hocked in his drink -- it's lovable.

Expect a heartless InBev re-make sometime soon, with a soccer ref, an effeminate Ronaldo lookalike, a red card, and a Stella Artois.
