Leave it to the culture to breathe new life into a 90’s Budweiser catchphrase while addressing the situation we’re all currently facing at the moment.
Reminding everyone to check in on friends and loved ones during this hectic quarantine, Budweiser has partnered with the Salvation Army and called on Gabrielle Union, Dwyane Wade, Insecure stars Issa Rae, Yvonne Orji, and Broadway stars Emmy Raver-Lampman and Daveed Diggs to give everyone a public service announcement: WHASSSSUP!!!! The joint was hilarious.
Luckily for everyone, they’ll get a chance to participate in the iconic catchphrase for the next few days.
Every day at 6:00 PM EST, Budweiser will be offering its community the chance to say “whassup” through a host of interactive activations on its social platforms. This is headlined by “whassup” live chats every Thursday via Instagram Live on @BudweiserUSA where different celebrities will check in while having a Bud and answering questions submitted by fans.
