Full of Hot Air
There's a giant beer bottle floating above Allen Parkway
Like something out of a movie or the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, if you turned the bend going east on Allen Parkway Friday morning, a looming figure obstructed the horizon.
It wasn't Snoopy, but rather a hot air balloon shaped like a gargantuan bottle of Bud Select 55 — a clever play on the advertising campaign, which is predicated on the idea that Select 55 is so light (on calories), it floats. With Freedom Over Texas taking place Monday night, it's a good time to get some floating publicity.
