Anyone recognize the guy in this commercial? No? That’s Leon of Budweiser fame. You may remember Leon from a series of fantastic Budweiser commercials in the early 2000’s highlighting the arrogance of professional athletes. I have talked about some bad commercials and some disgusting ones on MWTVG, let’s talk about some funny ones now. Here are some of Leon’s best:
You might not know this about Leon, but he is played by actor Nigel Thatch who, for a short time, played baseball for a minor league team here in Chicago, The Schaumburg Flyers. Funny thing about his career? He was traded to Fullerton for 60 cases of Budweiser beer. I’m not kidding.
