Two Bud Light #UpForWhatever Comercials Filmed in Tampa Bay Area

The first of two Bud Light "Up For Whatever" commercials that were filmed in the Tampa Bay area features a surprised Bucs fan that comes home to find out his house has been decked out in Bucs gear. To his further surprise, Warren Sapp pops out in full pirate regalia to reveal that his back yard has also been commandeered and now contains a pirate ship (equipped with canons). From what I hear, the pirate ship had to be removed after the commercial was shot. I would be very disappointed if that were me! I thought this commercial might be only shown locally, but it turns out that it was shown nationwide.

The second commercial features a lucky fan that gets to play electric football against Jimmy Johnson. It is nothing special, but it was filmed at Hat Tricks in downtown Tampa.
