Fred & Barney Peddle Busch Beer

The Flintstones' original run ended in 1966 and their popularity with prime-time audiences caught the eye of executives of Anheuser-Busch.Hanna-Barbera was contacted to produced a complete 23 minute episode of The Flintstones entitled "Busch Advertising 1967".

The film was not intended for public broadcast but for Busch beer distributors to inform them about Anheuser-Busch's advertising campaign for 1967.The Flintstones had already advertised Winston cigarettes so Busch beer was no surprise. Times sure have changed.

Busch->Budweiser->AmBev/InBev

We cannot forget that Budweiser (AmBev/InBev) is one of the sponsors from the 2010 FIFA World Cup, which's being held in South Africa.

Are you paying more than $5 / pack of cigarettes? I'm buying my cigarettes over at Duty Free Depot and this saves me over 60% on cigarettes.
