HOUSTON – Beyonce was one Houstonian that took over the Super Bowl halftime show. But there was another Houstonian that took over another Super Bowl hit, the commercials.
Lots of people are still talking about this tearjerker by Budweiser called ‘Brotherhood.’ It tells the story of a baby Clydesdale horse and the long-lasting bond between a man and his horse.
The cowboy is former Houstonian, actor Don Jeanes. He sat down and talked to NewsFix.
Jeanes tells us he spent most of his life in Humble. He started acting when he was kid, volunteering to be the lead in a school play and the rest is history.
So far Don’s resume is looking pretty impressive. He’s appeared in numerous television shows, including ‘CSI: NI.’ He’s even made his way to the big screen, appearing in numerous movies. He even played astronaut Neil Armstrong in ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon.’
But strapping on the cowboy boots for the commercial that’s got everyone talking wasn’t that much of an acting stretch.
“I did bull ride for a little bit there. I’ve been around horses all my life and working cows,” Don said.
Even though the commercial has been watched by millions and continues to blow up, Don remains humble.
“It feels great. I gotta tell ya, I feel very, very lucky. I’d like to thank everybody in Houston for all the support.”
