HOUSTON, TX – The Super Bowl is more than just watching two teams face-off. It’s also time for some super commercials.

Last year, Budweiser made a tear-jerker called “Brotherhood,” which told the story of a bond between a cowboy and his Clydesdale horse. Well, Budweiser did it again this year with “Puppy Love,” showing just how strong a friendship can be between a horse and a puppy. Add some soft music and a good looking cowboy, and you’ve got the same recipe for another hit. And get this, the viral commercial has ties back to Houston.

The cowboy in the commercial is Don Jeanes, a fellow Houstonian and he stopped by NewsFix. Don grew up in Humble, but eventually moved to New York City and Los Angeles to pursue his career in acting. He’s gotten numerous roles on the small screen and even played Neil Armstrong in the movie “Transformers 3.” But it’s the commercials that Don is especially proud of.

“It’s this commercial. If you count the number of eyes on it, that’s the biggest job I’ve done,” he said.

With the success of the commercials, there’s no doubt Don’s got a lot to look forward to this year.

“I miss my family. I miss my family and the people, but you can’t beat the people from Houston, Texas. C’mon!”

Don says he’s extremely thankful for all the support he’s gotten.

And though we don’t know who’s going to win Sunday’s game, Budweiser definitely has a winning commercial.
