After airing on Monday Night Football back in 1999, Budweiser’s “Whassup” ad campaign exploded as a pop culture catchphrase. The phenomenon was parodied in Scary Movie. Ross tried bringing it back during an episode of Friends. In the first episode of The Office, Michael Scott resurrects the joke several years after it first aired.
… During the coronavirus pandemic, Budweiser has decided to bring back its famous Whassup ad, but with a twist. Starring former NBA legends Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, actress Gabrielle Union, two-time WNBA MVP Candace Parker, and DJ D-Nice, the group get together to say “whassup” in classic fashion. As the commercial wraps up, it becomes a message of positivity, unity and staying connected.
