The Bud Light king - famous for the "Dilly Dilly" commercials - says it must be Miller Lite's corn syrup since Miller Lite uses corn syrup in its beer. The company will introduce icons to its US Bud Light packaging to highlight that it uses no preservatives, no corn syrup and no artificial flavours.
"America's corn farmers are disappointed in you", it said. And in Bud Light's Game of Thrones commercial, you lose, get your skull cracked and then get burnt by a dragon. Reporter Sarah Kaplan suggested the "next $10 million could go toward better health benefits, parental leave, equal pay, and more jobs for reporters?"
Anheuser-Busch, the maker of Bud Light, responded that it "fully supports corn growers and will continue to invest in the corn industry".
The Bud Light Dilly Dilly characters had two appearances at this year's Super Bowl, although their second ad came with a twist. "This effort is to provide consumers transparency and elevate the beer category".
At the end of the ad, Bud Light is sure to remind viewers that "Bud Light is brewed with no corn syrup". This was reported by none other than The Washington Post, who claimed to have not known about Khashoggi's Qatar ties when it published him and turned him into a martyr upon his death - likely because journalists from another outlet started asking questions and the Post wanted to paint the information in the most positive light possible.

Some observers are wondering if the ad would be effective.
