Jon Pardi Cuts ‘I Like Beer’ for Michelob Ultra Super Bowl Commercial [Watch]
Jon Pardi has re-recorded the classic Tom T. Hall hit "I Like Beer" for a Super Bowl commercial set to air on Sunday (Feb. 4).
The Michelob Ultra commercial stars actor Chris Pratt, Olympian long distance runner Shalane Flanagan, golfer Brooks Koepka and surfer Kelly Slater. While he doesn't appear on camera during the just-released 60-second television spot, Pardi's voice drives a song that becomes a massive singalong with each new scene.
"I Like Beer" is not on either of Pardi's album. He re-cut it for this advertisement, admitting he was more than excited when Michelob Ultra reached out to him. This is the second time in two weeks the "She Ain't in It" singer has been part of a high-profile television commercial. During the 2018 Grammys he was part of campaign to stop smoking called The Truth.
These are the Best, Worst and Most Awkward Country TV Commercials:
Hall's original version of "I Like Beer" was a Top 5 hit in 1975, released it on his I Wrote a Song About It album. It's a little slower than Pardi's recreation, but otherwise very similar. In 2002 Hall's song "I Love" was used in a commercial for Coors Light.
Pardi has had a busy week between television commercial appearances. The 2017 CMA New Artist of the Year was just announced as an opening act on Luke Bryan's stadium tour. Sam Hunt is also a part of the 2018 What Makes You Country XL Tour.
