Who didnt say whassssupppp every time their phone rang during the period this advertisement was aired? Budweiser absolutely knocked product placement out of the park when they created this short film and advert. This advertisement was a pop culture phenomenon, with people around the world showing it to their friends and quoting the phrase and lines from the advert every time they picked up their phone or even drank a Budweiser. Of course, the advertisement was parodied in the hit spoof, Scary Movie. This subtracted the actual Budweiser from the equation and created the association between the phrase and unfortunately something that is far less enjoyable than a bud, the Scream mask.
