Super Bowl commercial brings together 'Game of Thrones,' Bud Light

Super Bowl commercial brings together 'Game of Thrones,' Bud Light

The ad was narrated by Tom Hanks, who starred in the 2017 movie "The Post", and ran 60 seconds during what is usually one of the most-watched television programs of the year. "Sanchez, a former TV anchor and helicopter pilot, has been shooting aerial footage of Blue Origin rocket launches and landings for Bezos".

"There was talk that he spent so much money on it because he wanted to be close to her", said the source.

However, CNBC reported that CBS charged $5.25 million for a 30-second slot during the event, meaning a full minute could have cost more than $10 million.

'You know how MSM (main stream media) journalists could avoid having to spend millions on a #superbowl comercial to gain some undeserved credibility?

Fredrick Kunkle, a Post staff writer and co-chair of its union, also criticized the Super Bowl ad in a series of tweets.




Reporter Dan Zak responded with a list of less elevated concerns, writing: "Now unfreeze our pensions, pay an equal wage, and strengthen maternity benefits".

When Bezos posted the ad on Twitter with a message saying that he was "g$3 rateful for the journalists at the @washingtonpost and around the world who do the work, no matter the risk or dangers they face".

Moments earlier, Don Jr. tweeted: 'By far the worst Super Bowl commercials ever. "Please leave us out of the beer wars". Since his death by the Saudi government past year, we have learned that he was less a "journalist" and more of a propagandist for Qatar, who translated and shaped his columns.

Many aim for laughs, like Amazon's ad about celebrity product testers. A Spokeswoman for the Post wouldn't give Adweek a comment about the allegations in Page Six.
