In the 80's there was a party animal, and his name was Spuds MacKenzie. The Bull Terrier became a part of the marketing of Bud Light. Anheuser-Busch introduced the world to Spuds during the SuperBowl in 1987.

My wardrobe that year was composed of several Spuds MacKenzie tshirts too. My grandfather worked for AB and although retired from the company, still received a discount on merchandise. When a seasonal catalog was released, I'd take the opportunity to add a tee to my collection. I also had a variety of neon colored sun glasses, the AB swim suit and matching flip flops. Hard to believe I didn't have a girlfriend back then, right?

By the way, if you didn't know Spuds was portrayed as a male dog, but was in fact a female. She died a few years after her retirement from kidney failure at the age of 10 (70 in dog years). Thanks for the great memories Spuds.
