Greatest Beer commercials ever

For years nothing has taken the stress out of a tense sporting event like a comic beer commercial, and the best ever of these "art forms" was the 80s Miller Lite ads that featured Dave Cowens, Red Auerbach, Tommy Heinsohn, Dick Butkus, Bubba Smith, Rodney Dangerfield, Bob Uecker, Mickey Spillane, John Madden, Billy Martin, Larry Csonka, Ed Too Tall Jones and others. Sure sure, since then Bud Light has come up with a few funny ones but nothing beat these guys in classic ads like these:

THE CASE OF THE MISSING CASE: UB remembers this as a promotion to sell more beer. The idea was clues would be given in each case or six pack or can of Miller Lite and a few months later the person who stole the Miller Lite would be revealed. From what UB recalls this was the ad that revealed the thief:

THE FIRST LITE BEER CAMPING TRIP: The boys fear the appearance of "The Beast"

BIRD DUNKS: Here's one more with Larry Bird. UB's pretty sure this one was from late 80s early 90s, about the end of Lite's dominance of Beer Commercial comedy.

Here's a fake Miller ad that was forwarded to UB by a reader. Though it is clearly a fake, it would be a funny ad that could put Lite back on top...

Recent Lite ads have been more Sexy than funny, not that there's anything wrong with that:
