Joe Rogan discussed Vince McMahon on his podcast with Ric Flair.
“When he was getting involved in scandals and there were girls he paid off, it’s like duh. An 80 year old savage who is built like a gladiator, you think he f***?”
Rogan added, “Of course he’s got some floozies on the side.”
According to Outkick, Anheuser-Busch and Bud Light have been struggling with a dip in sales, and their recent attempts to right the ship seem to be falling flat. In a recent attempt to salvage their image, the beer company released a patriotic ad that has been widely criticized for being over-the-top and disingenuous. Joe Rogan, in particular, called out the company on a recent episode of his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience.
Rogan slammed the company for their partnership with Dylan Mulvaney, calling it a mistake that insulted its customers. He then went on to criticize the patriotic ad, calling it “the f—–g dumbest pro-America rah-rah” he had ever seen. According to Rogan, the ad only made things worse for the ailing beer giant.
Rogan’s critique of the commercial was that it was disingenuous and had nothing to do with drinking Bud Light. He felt that it was an over-the-top attempt to appeal to patriotism that fell flat. Rogan’s criticism was shared by many, who felt that the ad was trying too hard to be patriotic and was ultimately ineffective.
Other beer companies, such as Yuengling, have tried to counter Anheuser-Busch’s decline by leaning into a pro-America image. However, as Rogan pointed out, this tactic only works if you haven’t already alienated your customers with disingenuous marketing strategies.
In the end, it seems that Anheuser-Busch and Bud Light will need to find a way to win back the trust of their customers if they want to turn their fortunes around. As Rogan pointed out, the company is in deep trouble, and over-the-top patriotic ads are unlikely to solve their problems.
