Will Ferrell's Latest Old Milwaukee Ad Aired During Super Bowl... Only In North Platte, Nebraska

Last December, we shared a few Old Milwaukee commercials, which featured Will Ferrell as the star. While it’s not unusual for a movie star to loan their image and voice to an advertisement, the funny thing about these ads (besides the ads themselves) was that they were only set to air in Davenport, Iowa. What’s more, Ferrell did them for no charge.

A new Old Milwaukee ad starring Ferrell aired during last night’s game, and if you didn’t see it, it might be because you don’t live in North Platte, Nebraska. Per Enterainment Weekly, that’s the only place the 30-second commercial below aired.

I’m pretty sure the cut-off at the end is intentional. Or maybe that’s just my interpretation of Ferrell’s goofy style of humor, especially when factoring in how long he takes to get to the screen and catch the beer. It’s dramatic and a whole lot of build up to get to the punchline, which takes place past the 30-second mark.

Is his trip to Nebraska an indication that Ferrell’s going to be popping up in other random towns and cities to promote Old Milwaukee?
