Budweiser unveils "rallying cry for relentless creators,

LEUVEN, Belgium, April 28,
2022 /CNW/ -- Budweiser, an AB InBev global brand,
today unveiled a new global platform and creative campaign with the
launch of Tomorrow is Yours to Take, a mantra meant to
inspire emerging creators, led by eight-time GRAMMY Award winner,
producer, songwriter, artist and director Anderson .Paak.
Tomorrow is Yours to Take reflects what it means to
hustle and chase success, and this global movement will inspire and
connect creators worldwide.
The Tomorrow is Yours to Take campaign launches today
with a music video entitled "Yours to Take" featuring an original
song produced and performed by .Paak. The video tells the
story of creators and aspiring talents overcoming naysayers and
skeptics worldwide, with Budweiser alongside each step of the
journey. The video is a collaboration on a global scale, featuring
French freestyler soccer player Sean
Garnier, Brazilian rapper Xamã, Swedish fashion designer
Julia Dang, Colombian graffiti
artist Wanda Pot, Argentinian singer Lara91K, Brazilian graphic
artist Gabriel Massan and British
drummer Louise Bartle.
"Budweiser is a rallying cry for relentless creators, dreamers,
and go-getters hell-bent on making their mark. While today marks
the launch of Tomorrow is Yours to Take, it's the creators,
the dreamers and the risk-takers who take center stage with this
new evolution," said Todd Allen,
Vice President of Global Marketing, Budweiser. "As someone who
defied the naysayers to follow his dreams, .Paak embodies the
spirit of Tomorrow is Yours to Take and its meaning."
Wieden+Kennedy led the creative concept of the campaign in
partnership with Budweiser, .Paak and a team of creators around the
globe. "Yours To Take" celebrates the power of an independent
generation that does what they believe in, no matter what others
say. With an original track by .Paak and real stories from real
creators to deliver the message, the campaign had to be more than
an ad. And that was when the music video was born: an entertainment
piece that helped become a part of the culture in an authentic way
with a cinematic feel.
By partnering with .Paak to produce the soundtrack to this
global campaign, Budweiser is laying the groundwork for future
efforts supporting up-and-coming creatives. This is just the
"My new music for the campaign isn't just a song, it's an
anthem! The way I see it, it's like a rallying cry to those who are
DONE listening to all the reasons why their dreams are impossible,"
says Anderson .Paak. "Trust me, I heard all those naysayers too,
but I kept myself motivated and did my best to ignore the haters
every step of the way. My hope is that Budweiser and I can reach
artists, designers, athletes and creatives – everyone! – all over
the world who are ready to take the first step on their own path to
