The one-minute commercial is set up in a medieval world, with a royal couple watching a jousting contest - needless to say, sipping Bud Light in royal fashion.

Stuart Sanderson, a corn farmer in Limestone County, told us he won't be drinking Bud Light anymore because of the commercial.

"Wind power's record-setting 2018 proves you really can have it all", Tom Kiernan, CEO of American Wind Energy Association, said in the release.
