Sarah McLachlan is taking the Super Bowl by storm with her latest commercial for Busch Light. The 30-second spot, which was released two weeks ahead of Super Bowl 2023, features Busch Light’s spokesman “Busch Guy” teaching wilderness survival skills. The ad emphasizes the three essentials for the great outdoors: food, drink, and shelter.

As Busch Guy showcases a six-pack of Busch Light for “drink,” McLachlan, 55, enters the scene with a twist on her iconic 1997 song “Angel.” In her famous commercials for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), McLachlan encouraged viewers to Donate money to stop animal abuse. However, this time, she pokes fun at her past work by stating, “Hello, I’m Sarah McLachlan. For just dollars a day, you can help helpless animals find shelter.”

But Busch Guy quickly reminds McLachlan that this “shelter” is the wrong one and adds with a laugh, “also, that’s a wolf.” McLachlan has already spoofed her ASPCA commercials in a previous ad for Bolt, a checkout technology company. She expressed her excitement for this new commercial and stated, “Busch Light shares my love of animals and the wilderness so, while it seems unexpected, this spot is a really clever and good-hearted mix of my passions and their brand.”

Last year, Busch Light released a Super Bowl commercial featuring Kenny G, reviving the brand’s classic “Head for the Mountains” song. McLachlan expressed her appreciation for the brand’s nod to nostalgia with this new rendition of her “Angel” ASPCA commercial. She can’t wait to see how people react.

Busch Light plans to release more ads as part of the complete “Busch Guide,” which will focus on different areas of outdoor preparedness, such as signaling for help, facing a black bear, avoiding poison ivy, and more. In celebration of McLachlan’s love for the environment, Busch Light will Donate $25,000 to One Tree Planted. Krystyn Stowe, head of marketing at Busch Family & Natural Family at Anheuser-Busch, expressed her excitement for the new commercial. She stated, “Busch Light fans will love our spin on Sarah McLachlan’s iconic commercial, as they always appreciate a bit of humor that ultimately serves a good cause — especially when it comes to the great outdoors we both hold dear.”

Super Bowl LVII is set for February 12th and is sure to be a hit with McLachlan and Busch Light’s take on sustainability and animal welfare. This commercial is not just a funny spoof on McLachlan’s past work, but it also serves as a reminder to Support Conservation efforts and protect the environment. Not sure how to help?
