Are you ready for an amaze-ing adventure? Bud Light released its full Super Bowl XLIX ad, and promises some ‘old-school fun’. The epic commercial takes you through a life-sized version of the classic arcade game Pac-Man — watch it here!
Bud Light always produces imaginative Super Bowl commercials, so you can imagine our excitement when a life-sized Pac-Man game was featured in their Super Bowl XLIX ad. The 90-second commercial was released during The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Jan. 22, and takes us through an incredible time-hop.
Bud Light Super Bowl Commercial: Pac-Man Comes To Life In ‘Coin’ Ad
The ad starts out with a regular guy named Riley walking into a bar. “If I give you a Bud Light, will you be up for whatever happens next?” he’s asked by the bartender.
Riley gladly agrees, and reads the message aloud on the beer: “The perfect beer for stepping outside for some old-school fun.”
That’s where Riley’s epic night begins! Riley and his friends venture over to a clandestine spot and insert a huge coin where the sign reads. Turns out, they enter a life-size version of the famous neon blue maze, of course at the center of a huge warehouse party where DJs are spinning house music and glamorous people are sipping beer.
As Riley takes in his surroundings, he’s soon whisked away a girl who says, “You are Pac-Man,” and throws him at the center of the neon maze. We watch Riley scramble around the maze, running into corners and away from the famous colorful ghosts, Inky, Pinky, Blinky and Clyde. He runs around the maze and collects cherries, but can’t always avoid the hunters! Watch the video to see where Riley’s adventure takes him.
The commercial, called “Coin”, is part of Bud Light’s “Whatever Happens Next” campaign.
