Will Ferrell Brings His Love Of Old Milwaukee To Nebraska In Regional Super Bowl Ad

Will Ferrell is spreading his enthusiasm for Old Milwaukee through the heartland, taking on Nebraska in a Super Bowl ad shown only in that state last night. Regional ads for the beer aired in Davenport, Iowa and Terra Haute, Ind. in the last few months, after Ferrell asked the company if he could make commercials for them free of charge, an offer they clearly couldn’t refuse.

Funny Or Die’s Tumblr (via NYMag.com) says: “No list of best Super Bowl commercials would be complete without this big-budget gem that only aired in Nebraska.”

Striding through a golden field, hoisting a fresh Old Milwaukee and cracking it open, Ferrell opens his mouth to impart his beery wisdom — only to be cut off by the local news promo in perhaps North Platte, Neb. Oh, you rascal, Will Ferrell!
