Bud Light’s latest attempt to win back culturally conservative consumers with their “Backyard Grunts with Travis Kelce” commercial seems to have missed the mark. After facing backlash for aligning with a transgender influencer, Bud Light’s hopes of repairing their strained relationship were dashed as viewers criticized the ad for failing to mend the divide. The commercial features Travis Kelce opening a Bud Light, followed by other men in a laid-back scene. However, YouTube comment sections were flooded with scornful remarks, predicting brand failure and mocking the brand’s marketing tactics. The declining sales further highlight the challenges Bud Light faces, with rival Modelo taking the top spot and Bud Light experiencing a 27.9% sales dip. It appears that Bud Light’s attempt to regain lost demographics has only deepened the divide and alienated their consumer base.
