Charlotte's 2016 Protests Seen in New Budweiser Ad


CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Queen City will make an appearance in a national Budweiser ad scheduled to run during Sunday’s Super Bowl.

Throughout the commercial, the narrator lists common complaints about “typical Americans” while shuffling through different uplifting scenes.

However, when Charlotte appears it shows a painful piece of the city’s history, the 2016 protests.

The ad already has more than 3 million views on YouTube.Millions more will watch it during the Super Bowl. 

While the ad tries to send a positive message, for many in Charlotte, it shows images from a tumultuous time.

Anheuser-Busch said the message is to “look beyond the labels. You might be surprised by what you find.”
