Pro golfer Brooks Koepka, pro surfer Kelly Slater and 2017 NYC Marathon winner Shalane Flanagan join actor Chris Pratt in this 2018 Super Bowl commercial for Michelob ULTRA — joining a group singalong to the song I Like Beer.

The ad sees the sports stars taking part in their various activities while singing Tom T. Hall’s song, in a version by singer-songwriter Jon Pardi.

Michelob says that Michelob ULTRA is “a low carb & low calorie light beer that won’t undo the work you put into working out”. A caption at the end of the advert reads: “Live fit. Live fun. Live ultra.”

Who are the sports stars in the Michelob ULTRA Super Bowl commercial?

Koepka, 27, is currently ranked eighth in the Official World Golf Ranking, and claimed his first major championship last year when he shot to fame by winning the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills, Wisconsin.

Slater, 45, is a pro surfer who was crowned World Surf League Champion a record 11 times — and is both the title’s youngest and oldest ever winner.

Flanagan holds the American record for the indoor 3,000m and 5,000m races, as well as the 15k road race. She became the first American woman since 1977 to win the Women’s New York City Marathon when she claimed victory in last year’s race.

I Like Beer lyrics

In some of my songs I have casually mentioned
The fact that I like to drink beer
This little song is more to the point
Roll out the barrel and lend me your ears

I like beer, it makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer, it helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow (Makes him feel mellow)
Whiskey’s too rough, Champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear
This little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact I like beer
(He likes beer)

My wife often frowns when we’re out on the town
And I’m wearing a suit and a tie
She’s sipping vermouth and she thinks I’m uncouth
When I yell as the waiter goes by

I like beer, it makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer, it helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow (Makes him feel mellow)
Whiskey’s too rough, Champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear
This little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact I like beer
(He likes beer)

Last night I dreamed that I passed from the scene
And I went to a place so sublime
Aw, the water was clear and tasted like beer
Then they turned it all into wine (Awww)

I like beer, it makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer, it helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow (Makes him feel mellow)
Whiskey’s too rough, Champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear
This little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact I like beer
(He likes beer)
