02 September 2016

Today we get to see the Bud Light limited edition NFL Kickoff cans.  This is the Los Angeles Rams can, but stay tuned for more.

Here are the full details from Anheuser-Busch & Bud Light:

NEW YORK, Sept. 6, 2016 -- When the NFL season kicks off on Thursday, the country's favorite beer will be celebrating the fans that have made football the number one sport in America. Bud Light, the Official Beer Sponsor of the NFL, has already released 720 million of its newly redesigned NFL team cans and next will launch a nationwide marketing campaign starring those cans, highlighted by a television spot featuring former NFL players Bo Jackson, Justin Tuck and Tim Couch.

Debuting during Thursday Night Football, the 75-second film was directed by acclaimed music and film director Mark Romanekand includes a voiceover by actor Michael K. Williams. Titled "This is Your Can's Year," the film takes viewers on a journey around the league, encapsulating what the game day fan experience and tradition is like among NFL teams. Fans will be able to catch 15- and 30-second versions of the spot throughout the season, as well as unique team-specific Bud Light spots in their local markets, with all creative led by Bud Light's lead creative agency Wieden+Kennedy.

"Just like wearing your favorite player's jersey or team colors is a badge of honor, so is drinking from your Bud Light team can," said Mark Goldman, Senior Marketing Director, Bud Light. "Our mission with our new film was to pay tribute to the passion fans feel for their team, & capture the optimism that we all feel as NFL fans at the beginning of the season, when it truly can be your team's year."

Along with ads running throughout the NFL season, the comprehensive NFL campaign leverages key elements of Bud Light's NFL partnerships and features a mix of radio, print, digital, programmatic advertising and retail elements. To officially mark the kickoff of the NFL season, Bud Light will ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday, Sept. 8. Throughout the season Bud Light will also kick off each week's first game as the presenting sponsor of Thursday Night Football on CBS and NFL Network, integrating the brand and its NFL team cans throughout the broadcast.

"The game wouldn't be the same for us players without the fans who put their heart and soul into game day," added Tuck. "The Bud Light ad honors each & every one of these fans and their passion for the sport."

In addition to being the Official Beer Sponsor of the NFL, Bud Light has local agreements with 28 NFL teams, each of whom has limited-edition, team-specific packaging allowing fans to take their team spirit to a whole new level. Taking inspiration from classic football jerseys, this season's bold and simplistic 12-oz. team cans feature the new Bud Light logo, the team's logo and colors and the NFL logo. The cans will be brought to life in each market through OOH featuring localized, signature phrases that every team's fan will recognize and embrace.
