While the Super Bowl is all about football, music is beautifully integrated into the event with phenomenal performances — from stars like Reba McEntire, Andra Day, Usher, and more this year — as well as commercials that feature some of the biggest celebrities of 2024. This blend of football and music is evident in Bud Light’s Super Bowl commercial this year, bringing together both Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning and platinum recording artist Post Malone in an advertisement that is equally effective as it is silly.
Post Malone, Peyton Manning Star In Bud Light Super Bowl LVIII Commercial
To kick off the minute-long commercial, a fan in a Denver Broncos jersey with the last name Manning on the back cracks open a bottle of Bud Light, ultimately unleashing the “Bud Light Genie” who is there to grant a seemingly endless number of wishes.
From receiving a head of “80s metal hair” and a “giant bicep” to being “filthy rich” and “invisible” and beyond, the Broncos fan and his friends took full advantage of the genie, even causing Peyton Manning and Post Malone to enter the picture.
“I wish Peyton Manning was my best friend,” the Broncos fan shares with the “Bud Light Genie,” causing the Hall of Fame quarterback to appear.
Similarly, his friend wishes for Post Malone — an individual who will be putting on a stellar pre-game performance at Super Bowl LVIII — who promptly appears as well. It is safe to say that nobody saw this crossover coming, with the two superstars seemingly only interacting with one another once at the 2023 CMA Awards, where Manning was the host and Malone was a performer.
Nonetheless, another celebrity appearance occurs shortly after one friend says “I wish I was at that fight” while pointing to the television, and almost instantaneously popping up in the presence of the CEO of the UFC, Dana White.
With Manning wishing for a house party and Malone wishing for a Tyrannosaurus Rex, these wishes seemingly get out of hand, with the group escaping the madness by wishing to go to Super Bowl LVIII, ultimately closing out the commercial once and for all.
This appearance marks Post Malone’s second time appearing in a Bud Light Super Bowl advertisement.
