Question of the day

May 11, 2016

Our last question asked: What "potentially ingenious, potentially absurd branding extremes" has Budweiser gone to, just in time for the 2016 election? Renaming its beer "America," beginning May 23 through the November election. Yes, that just happened.

Congratulations to Craig Pittman of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions go out to these equally fine folks for also getting it right: Amy B. WangMark Gibbs (who remarks "How odd. I don't think of the U.S. as weak and tasteless"), Kimmi C (who applauds it as "brewing up a hopping great competition for campaign branding"), Elaine IandoliM Edward/Ed Borasky (who jokes it will be "'Molson' if Trump wins"), Thomas FeyerAnnie M. Dance (who offers up the motto "vote & have a cold one"), Tyler Gatlin (who calls it "Appropriate in this election cycle, b/c Bud tastes like sadness") and Ron Casalotti (who quips "In a related story, TV actress is changing her name to Budweiser Ferrara"

As for today's question, here it is: On Thursday, a Washington Post reporter will follow through on a pledge to do what? And why?
