You know the frogs were huge after the Super Bowl. People talked a lot about that ad or from what I remember. The frogs came back the following year and in 1999.
That's right. You can find the entire Frank and Louie campaign here if you search on Budweiser Frogs. Here is one from Super Bowl 1996 https://adland.tv/adnews/budweiser-frogs-winter-1996-030-usa
