“We’re thrilled to be partnering with one of the greatest athletes of all time on one of the biggest stages in sports for a campaign that perfectly aligns with our brand’s point of view,” said Ricardo Marques, Vice President of Marketing, Michelob ULTRA. “We have an exciting plan to connect with our audience in the weeks leading up to and around Super Bowl Sunday, while also using this moment to set up what we believe will be an electrifying year for Michelob ULTRA.”


Superior Beach

Messi appears alongside Emmy award-winning actor, Jason Sudeikis, and Hall of Fame quarterback, Dan Marino, in a fun-filled spot that celebrates the joy and spontaneity that comes from embracing active living in social occasions – especially when it’s shared over a beer.


The spot follows the sports and entertainment legends enjoying an impromptu game of pick-up beach soccer to show that whether you’re a legend or an everyday athlete, you don’t have to choose between being active and being social.


Michelob ULTRA's Super Bowl commercial was directed by Adam Berg and created by Wieden + Kennedy New York.
