In July, Bud Light pledged free beer for all aliens who escaped and promised to create a limited-edition alien pack if this tweet received 51K retweets -- the tweet fell short, but Bud Light aims to please and is producing the alien-themed Bud Light Can to share with any alien that leaves the sanctuary of Area 51 on Sept. 20.
Starting today, fans in Nevada, Arizona, and California will be able to purchase the Bud Light alien cans to celebrate the potential release of our otherworldly friends. The special-edition aluminum cans feature a green alien and black background as well as a new crest welcoming all extraterrestrials from near and far to crack a cold one.
For any aliens that escape or decide to visit Earth, Bud Light produced an alien-friendly fridge stocked with Bud Light alien cans. The fridge is locked with an alien finger scan, to ensure the beer supply is available only to our extraterrestrial friends. The fridge will be located at the Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, roped off and reserved exclusively for aliens to live it up from Sept. 13 through Sept. 20.
To bring the raid to fans everywhere, Bud Light is also producing a line of limited-edition Alien Raid merch to match the alien-themed Bud Light Cans. Starting today, legal drinking aged fans can purchase items online from the www.abgiftshop.com. Merch includes koozies, shirts, hat and bomber jackets and prices range from $100 or less.
