“Dilly Dilly” — Bud Lights new catchphrase — has taken the world by storm.
Bud Lights vice president of marketing Andy Goeler talked to The Washington Post about the slogan in an article published Thursday.
Goeler told WaPo that the slogan Dilly Dilly means, “a cheers, a Bud Light cheers.”
He also explained how the ad campaign started, saying, “With a brand the size of Bud Light, theres a continuing need to put out creative ad content, so we on a regular basis are reviewing creative ideas. It was about June, and we were having one of those creative sessions with our creative agency, Wieden+Kennedy, and they were reading scripts talking about different ideas.” (RELATED: The Masters Ban Saying Dilly Dilly, Its A Sad Day For Freedom)
