Full color 10" x 13" ad has a photo of two men in business suits sitting at the bar in, what the ad refers to as, the tavern. It is further identified as "a friendly spot" and we see that the bartender is pouring beer from a bottle of Budweiser into a tall glass as he listens to the two men talk earnestly. The text indicates that the conversation is limited to "bowling, baseball or city hall" but those subjects are usually covered by the time the first few beers are gone.

Full color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad that shows another situation for which it can be said, "this calls for Budweiser". We see a picture of a contented man sitting alone in a red boat on a still lake. He has a fishing net over each side, a fishing rod in his left hand resting on the side of the boat and a cold can of Budweiser in his right and he is looking back at the camera with a look that seems to be asking "Jealous?". The text reminds us that "out fishing...across the water and over the hills there's a busy world. It's good to get away for a day. Enjoy yourself" and gives us words to live by when it adds "Where there's life...there's Bud".
