Dog in Budweiser commercial was Super Bowl's breakout star — he belongs to two of Hollywood's biggest actors

The Super Bowl is not only known for the thrilling game, but also for its remarkable commercials featuring major stars like Beyonce, Jeff Goldblum, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ben Affleck, and Jennifer Lopez. However, this year, there was an unexpected star who stole the spotlight – the dog of none other than Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell! Meet Roy Hawn Russell, the adorable lab who made his debut in this year’s Budweiser Super Bowl commercial alongside the iconic Budweiser Clydesdales.

Roy Hawn Russell and the Budweiser Clydesdales in "Old School Delivery"

In the minute-long commercial titled “Old School Delivery,” the Clydesdales embark on a Budweiser delivery during a treacherous snowstorm. As the drivers lose their way in the snow, Roy Hawn Russell, a friendly yellow lab, comes to their rescue and guides them to the bar. This heartwarming ad, with the perfect pairing of the Clydesdales and a dog, quickly became a favorite among viewers.

The commercial not only captivated the audience but also brought immense joy to the Russell-Hawn household. Goldie Hawn couldn’t contain her excitement and took to Instagram, sharing a video of the family cheering on Roy: “Don’t get me wrong, I love watching football, but tonight was all about watching our dog Roy Hawn Russell star in his first Super Bowl commercial.” Even Kate Hudson, Hawn’s daughter, captured a video of the watch party with guests enthusiastically rooting for Roy.

It’s no surprise that Roy received such adoration from his star-studded family. Hawn and Russell are proud owners of several dogs, and Roy has been part of their lives since January 2021. Hawn posted adorable photos of Roy as a puppy and at one year old, reminiscing about his pre-fame days.

While Roy’s acting career beyond the Super Bowl spot remains uncertain, he undeniably had his moment in the spotlight. This lovable dog proves that talent runs deep in his Hollywood lineage. The Budweiser commercial, directed by the acclaimed Henry-Alex Rubin, also featured Fred Dana, a real-life Budweiser wholesaler with over 34 years of dedication to the brand.

We were thrilled by this magnificent commercial during the Super Bowl and couldn’t believe that this talented dog belonged to none other than Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell! It’s a star-studded family indeed, and Roy’s rise to fame is just the beginning. Please share this heartwarming story and celebrate Roy Hawn Russell’s breakthrough!
