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:
