It’s been 17 years since the attacks of September 11, 2001. But for millions of Americans, haunting memories of that day are still fresh like it was yesterday, and many lives were changed forever.
On the most terrible day, America stopped in its tracks. It was a time of great sorrow for American, but also a time of patriotism and unity. Many years later, the day brings the country together in a reflective moment of silence.
American brand Budweiser was no exception to this patriotism. One of those tributes was an emotional ad featuring the Budweiser Clydesdales and it brought grown men to tears.
In the ad, the horses honor the memory of the fallen with an unforgettable, breathtaking bow. You will see Budweiser’s iconic clydesdale’s as they walk slowly, in pairs, along the streets of New York. They move past the Statue of Liberty, cross the Brooklyn Bridge, and finally pause in order to look at the city’s skyline.
The commercial ends on an emotional note, they stand before the spot where the Twin Towers once stood, bow their heads peacefully, and pay their respects to the victims of the tragic event. See the intense yet beautiful video below, and share it with your family and friends so that we can all feel the strong emotions in the video. It’s sure to make you feel proud to be an American.
