Poorly executed April Fools jokes were all the rage among American corporations this year, which is why I had to double check the date when I read this truly upsetting news: Budweiser is renaming itself “America” this summer. What the actual fuck.
I guess it sort of makes sense, because what’s more American than getting totally wasted off of cheaply made, mass produced beer? But at the same time, it’s hard to envision ordering an ice-cold can of “America.” The good news is the rebranding will only run until the election, meaning we’ll have at least one thing to look forward to come November.
Sounds like the sort of beverage that would taste like broken dreams and Donald Trump’s urine.
