Budweiser’s Leon – Still Funny

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.
