Corn growers across the country, including here in north Alabama, are scolding Bud Light.
And the chair of the Iowa Corn Growers Association released a statement Monday knocking Anheuser-Busch InBev, which brews Bud and Bud Lite, among others.
There, they are told the corn syrup must belong to Coors Light, which also uses corn syrup in its beer.
After a scene in which a "Game of Thrones" dragon - accompanied by the HBO series' familiar theme music - appears to fry Bud Light's entire royal court, the spot ends with a title screen plugging the April 14 premiere of "Thrones'" final season. "We're not standing with you".
As chance would have it, that's what happened.

Well, Bud Light teased a return to the "Dilly Dilly" world with its new 2019 Super Bowl ad - but there was a big twist that no one saw coming! But corn farmers weren't amused by the implication that corn syrup is unhealthy or undesirable. "They painted corn in a bad light", he explained. In fact, 12-ounce cans of Bud Light and Miller Lite list zero grams of sugar, while Coors Light lists 1 gram.
Anheuser-Busch said it "fully supports" corn growers and will continue to invest in the industry.
The differences between using rice and corn as a source of sugar are slim to none, according to Matt Simpson, an expert in the beer industry who runs the consultancy The Beer Sommelier.
"This attack especially hits home at a time when farmers are hurting due to challenging economic conditions. Bud Light felt like a natural fit, and they jumped at the opportunity". "Maybe I am getting used to my occupation and products being smeared for the sake of a marketing ploy".
Consumption of high fructose corn syrup in the United States began falling at the turn of the century when it was linked to soaring rates of obesity.
And Sam Adams tweeted "No corn syrup AND no rice".
