Bud Radio Jingles


I'm not a drinker, but I love those Bud Light ads/songs about the "Real American Heroes" and "Real Men of Genius"that play on the radio.

My favorites include `Mr. Wrecking Ball Operator` , `Mr. Hawaiian Shirt Pattern Designer`, and `Mr. Giant Taco Salad Inventor `.

I guess some guy took the time to post an archive all the songs/ads on his site. If you want a good laugh, go and listen to a few. If you are a media hord as I tend to be and want to quickly copy all of the songs to your machine then here is a little perl script I wrote to help ya out...

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use strict;
use LWP::Simple;
use HTML::TokeParser;
use HTML::Entities;

use constant BASE => 'http://www.ksilebo.com/realamerican/';

my $html = get( BASE );
my $p = HTML::TokeParser->new(\$html);
while ( my $token = $p->get_tag("a") )
my $url = $token->[1]{href} || "-";
my $text = $p->get_trimmed_text("/a");
chomp $url;
getstore( BASE . $url, $text ) if $url =~ /mp3$/;
