Hear Harry Caray call the final out of the World Series

He loved the Chicago Cubs. He loved Budweiser. To the point he proclaimed himself "Cubs Fan Bud Man".  And he dreamed one day the Chicago Cubs would win the World Series. The city of Chicago has had that dream since 1908!

Last night that dream came true with a dramatic Game 7 victory. The only thing missing from last night's win was Harry Caray calling the final out...until now.

Budweiser, the official beer of Major League Baseball, has created a custom TV spot that allows fans to hear the late, great Harry Caray call the final out of the 2016 World Series by utilizing Caray's iconic voice over clips depicting the emotion of today's fans.

To make this a reality, Budweiser custom-created a spot featuring audio from Caray's days as a Cubs broadcaster overlaid with real-time fan reactions to the game and Chicago Cubs fans celebrating the historic victory. In partnership with the Harry Caray estate, this custom spot was released following Game Seven of the 2016 World Series, giving baseball fans everywhere a chance to hear the final out the way it was meant to be called.

"While Bud and baseball pair well together, nothing and no one is more synonymous with the Chicago Cubs than Harry Caray," said Ricardo Marques, vice president, Budweiser. "To help Cubs fans celebrate this historic win, we wanted to bring back the real 'Cubs Fan Bud Man' to deliver the winning announcement he longed to give. We are honored to be part of this special moment."

Additionally, Budweiser reprised and aired its iconic 1984 "Cubs Fan Bud Man" ad last night immediately following the last out of the Fall Classic, showcasing Caray enjoying a baseball game with his fellow bleacher bums with his favorite beverage at his favorite stadium – Wrigley Field.

The brand's partnership with Caray dates back to the 1980's when he first held the role of "Cubs Fan Bud Man", resulting in a series of Budweiser commercial cameos. The relationship continues to be a strong one, with the brand working closely with the Harry Caray estate to continue to honor Caray and his commitment to baseball.

Budweiser will also be in on the ground in Chicago, with various activations, including:

  • Clydesdale appearances at local Chicago favorites and the upcoming World Series Championship Parade for the Cubs
  • Special Cubs celebratory cans for the entire Cubs organization
  • Local social and digital activations highlighting the road to the World Series for Cubs fans over the last 108 years

Anheuser-Busch and MLB have a longstanding relationship with Budweiser serving as the "Official Beer Sponsor of Major League Baseball" for more than thirty years.

  • Nothing gears me up for the holiday season like seeing preparations for the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. It comes but once a year! The runway show won't air until December 5th, but they'll be filming it very soon. All of our favorite supermodel chanel replica handbag collectors were in NYC for their Victoria's Secret fashion show fittings last week, and they brought some of their fave new designer bags along for the journey. Adriana Lima is not usually as visible as an Alessandra Ambrosio or even a Lily Aldridge, so it's a rare treat to see what bags she's favoring these days. She's brought a flashy Balenciaga Metal Edge City Bag to her fitting. Speaking of Alessandra Ambrosio, here she is heading out to dinner with a beautiful celine handbags outlet. Alessandra is undoubtedly the most prolific handbag collector of the Angels clique.Elsa Hosk was spotted grabbing coffee on her way to a fitting with an embossed leather (or maybe real croc?) mystery bag. We're not sure who makes this little black bucket bag, but I suspect those drawstring pulls are a big clue.Jasmine Tookes was spotted carrying this sophisticated burgundy leather Louis Vuitton Louise Bag to her fitting. Jasmine looks so warm and cozy here I just wanna wrap myself in infinity scarves and hibernate until spring.Danish model Josephine Skriver has only been with VS since 2011, but she must also have some friends at Fendi (maybe a guy named Karl?) because this bag is fresh off the runway from the replica handbags sale brand's Spring Summer 2017 collection. It isn't available to people who aren't Victoria Secret Angels just yet, and we haven't even been told what to call it.Finally, here's Lily Aldridge, heading in for her fitting with an eye-catching Louis Vuitton Pallas Chain Shoulder Bag. This LV style seems to be gradually gaining steam with celebs this season. Look at the Quattro (reviewed here) for one of the thinnest, most elegant and technically impressive long power reserve movements, the new Time Traveler (hands-on) for some (finally!) 21st-century-looking luxury world time swiss replica watches, or the XPS 1860 (hands-on here) for a high-end dress watch with an in-house micro-rotor movement for under $10k. This trend of engineered sensibility is now broken by one insane minute repeater.
