Remember the Bud Bowl?
Ron Kantowski of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, tongue in cheek, tracked down The Freezer, one of the beers that starred in those now-defunct Super Bowl spoof ads from 1989 to 1997.
“The biggest, baddest bottle on the planet — 40 ounces of mayhem and a twist top — lives mostly off royalties from ‘The Super Beer Shuffle’ and income from sports-memorabilia shows,” Kantowski reported. “The Freezer has gained weight. He looks to be at least 55 ounces. Bigger than a dorm-room pony keg.
“The Freezer says it could be worse. Much worse. Despite repeated hits to the bottle cap, he got out of the cooler with his carbonation intact.”
