The Budweiser maker says it's spent a ton of money on responsible drinking promotions, and it doesn't want Budweiser portrayed as part of a drunken man's problems. William Grant & Sons, which distributes Stolichnaya vodka, also wants its brand out of the film, reports Huffington Post.
Washington's character frequently drinks vodka through the film, and is shown once drinking Budweiser while behind the wheel. Most companies beg to have their products placed in movies, especially one as big as Flight, which earned $25 million in its debut weekend and is getting some Oscar buzz.'
"We would never condone the misuse of our products, and have a long history of promoting responsible drinking and preventing drunk driving. We have asked the studio to obscure the Budweiser trademark in current digital copies of the movie and on all subsequent adaptations of the film, including DVD, On Demand, streaming and additional prints not yet distributed to theaters."
