If only Harry Caray could have seen it. Born March 1, 1914, Caray spent his career being the sportscaster for major league baseball and the last sixteen as the announcer for the Chicago Cubs. Caray was also known for his infamous seventh-inning stretch “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” and was nicknamed “The Mayor of Rush Street,” a reference to Chicago’s famous tavern-dominated neighborhood and his known for his love of Budweiser beer.
As an ode to Caray, Budweiser in partnership with their ad agency VaynerMedia worked with Caray’s “family estate to obtain recordings of Mr. Caray’s voice and then layed it over footage of last night’s win and ruckus celebrations in Chicago,” according to AdAge.
“Sure as God made green apples the Chicago Cubs will be in a World Series” Harry Caray loved to say.
