Budweiser honored a real soldier returning home with a surprise celebration in a new Super Bowl ad.
The ad shows Lt. Chuck Nadd returning to Winter Park, Florida and being surprised with a tickertape parade.
The Orlando Sentinel reported that the 24-year-old Army helicopter pilot and operations officer had been told he was on a public affairs assignment to give a speech.
But when he got downtown, hundreds of residents, relatives, teachers and friends greeted him with a surprise parade.
Nadd’s girlfriend had nominated him for a VFW contest to honor a soldier with a tickertape parade in the soldier’s hometown.
The ad was filmed last month and is set to air Super Bowl Sunday on FOX.
