One year after 9/11, Budweiser released and ad during the Super Bowl that left every person in tears across America. Watching it gave me chills and I felt so somber right after.
This tribute to the heores that saved so many lives included the iconic Clydesdale Horse that represents freedom, courage and power. This commercial was only aired once, during Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002.
The ad shows the famous Clydesdales running across New York. The horses pass the Statue of Liberty, and cross the Brooklyn Bridge.
They finally stop to take a bow in a park overlooking the New York City skyline. The twin World Trade Center Towers are not to be seen in this moment as they were tragically destroyed on September 11, 2001.
After 9/11 the entire Nation put aside our differences and we were united as one more than ever before. Let this be a reminder that we can make America great, all we have to do is come together and help one another.
We will never forget.
Watch the ad that brought us together and put us in tears.
