Bud Light Could Turn Your Town into ‘Whatever, USA’

We last encountered the #UpForWhatever tag in Bud Light’s spoof of the viral Mullen “World’s Toughest Job” ad (SPOILER: it was being a mom). That work came from Boston shop Relevant 24, but the newest sort-of-related spot comes to our inbox via BBDO’s Chicago and New York offices.

Here’s “Surprise Guest”:

You may notice that the spot is something of a tease: it’s only the latest in a series…

…which launched with this spot.

Here’s another that we didn’t watch on a “real” TV starring that hip, ubiquitously blue-suited dude (who was almost certainly not elected by popular vote):

…and here’s your explanation of the campaign.

Our main query: will the town in question exclusively serve Bud Light? And what’s the situation re: salty snacks?

Your credits are definitely up for whatever.
