Dodgers infielder Max Muncy is in a Super Bowl ad for Bud Light seltzer lemonade that will run next weekend during the big game — but be quick since his appearance only lasts a few seconds.
Bud Light’s ad, titled “Last year’s lemons,” spotlights how people made lemonade out of the lemons that 2020 gave them, recounting a world in various scenarios that was literally raining lemons. Amid the montage, the scene shifts to Dodger Stadium pelted by lemons, where a fictional Dodgers third base coach screams, “Go, go, go” to Muncy as he rounds third base, heading for home.
2020 was a lemon of a year, so we made Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade.... and we’re bringing it to you for Super Bowl LV!— Bud Light (@budlight) January 28, 2021
