Patriot rockstar Kid Rock reacted to the recent news that Budweiser had made Dylan Mulvaney one of its spokespersons by propping up a few cases of Bud Lights and lighting them up for target practice in a now-viral video circulating social media.
Rock has made it clear he despises the woke movement, and for this particular video, he simply turns around and says “Grandpa is feeling a little frisky today. Let me say something to all of you and be as clear and concise as possible.”
He then proceeds to open fire on the several cases, sending cardboard, aluminum, and beer flying – or outright disappearing in a barrage of lead.
Take a look at this hilarious response to one of the most outlandish woke campaigns yet.

Rock’s video represents one of the few good uses for Bud Light, and if he made any mistakes at all, it’s that he actually purchased the items and put money in the St Louis-based company’s pockets.
A firing range is funny, but not buying any Budweiser products is still a better idea. Conservatives who value freedom, truth, and sanity should simply not be drinking these products anymore.
Seriously, how much do you need a buzz? If you drink Budweiser, you are not only condoning – but celebrating – Dylan Mulvney and everything represented by this person.
Here is how Mulvaney presented the new Bud Light ads, producing a cringy video replete with the usual over-the-top flamboyancy and exaggerated mannerisms.
Dylan Mulvaney has become the new brand ambassador for Bud Light. 🍺
The beer brand even made a special edition Dylan Mulvaney Can 🥤celebrating his 365 days of girlhood.

“This month I celebrated my day 365 of womanhood and Bud Light sent me possibly the best gift ever — A can with my face on it!’ Dylan Mulvaney said while endorsing Budweiser Light beer.
“Check out my Instagram story to see how you can enjoy March Madness with Bud Light and maybe win some money too.
Love ya. Cheers! Go Team! Whatever team you love, I love too!”
Again, if you drink Bud Light or Budweiser products, you are supporting this. It’s the same when it comes to watching the NBA, NFL, or MLB. If they go woke, and you don’t turn it off, you are part of the problem.
When reached for comment after a frenzy of righteous backlash, Budweiser’s parent company Anheuser-Busch replied with the rote bureaucratese of nothingness, saying:
“Anheuser-Busch works with hundreds of influencers across our brands as one of many ways to authentically connect with audiences across various demographics and passion points. From time to time we produce unique commemorative cans for fans and for brand influencers, like Dylan Mulvaney. This commemorative can was a gift to celebrate a personal milestone and is not for sale to the general public.”
Like Rock, whose actions clearly demonstrate he isn’t having it, other Twitter users did their own form of protest by videotaping themselves dumping out a can in the sink. The point is well taken, but if hurting sales is your goal, then something is sorely wrong with this method.
Here was one internet tough guy showing Anheuser-Busch what’s up, by giving them money and in return not even drinking beer.

As commenters pointed out, the company could care less what you do with beer you’ve already purchased.
So, good on Rock and good on this guy for starting a conversation, but unless people stop buying their awful beer then none of this changes.
