Rodney Carrington, Owen Benjamin and our own Brad Hinderliter were asked to be part of a Bud Light commercial during the Wild West Comedy Festival in 2015. Brad was doing a bar show in a honkytonk as part of WWCF and they interrupted him, asking if he was “up for anything.” They handcuffed a briefcase to his wrist and told him he needed to bring it to Rodney Carrington. Then Hinderliter was dragged around town doing beer commercial type stuff: being in a parade, riding in a monster truck, etc. He then found out that he would be opening for Rodney Carrington at TPAC that night.
“It was a lot of fun,” says Brad, “and they wouldn’t let me drink beer.”
Rodney Carrington posted the clip on his Youtube channel, saying, “The commercial never aired… so we are airing it.” Here it is:

For more from Brad Hinderliter:
Nashville’s own Landon Lyon will host the Maxim / Bud Light Real Men of Comedy show with Charlie Murphy, Joe Rogan and John Heffron on Friday, September 29th at TPAC’s Andrew Jackson Hall.
Lyon submitted a promo dvd of his stand-up to the show’s producers and was selected to compete in a finals competition held earlier this month. He won out over fellow Nashville-based comics Dan Whitehurst, Troy Blackwood, Chad Riden, and Lance Martin from Cleveland, now living in Atlanta. Tim Northern made a special appearance as the evening’s headliner before the winner was announced.
Landon said he was really excited about working with Murphy, Roagan and Heffron and was looking forward to performing at TPAC.
