Transcript for Person of the Week: Budweiser Clydesdales Team
And finally tonight our "person of the week." The newest star of the super bowl. A girl, two weeks old, about to take herve first steps into b budweis budweiser's big ad on sunday and aaron rovell was there to bring us surprises about the horses and people who make up the clydesdale show business dynasty. Reporter: It's the commercial everyone is talking about. The latest clydesdale super bowl classic. Is it a surprise that they're tugging at our emotions for yet another year? And it's not just in the commercials. They do this in real life, too. Social -- excuse me! -- And intelligent. They are called gentle giants, and that's for a reason. They are super friendly. Towering over six feet tall and more than 2,000 pounds, they weigh as much as a volkswagen beetle. And they're so strong they can tow a 7,000 pound wagon. But what you get in strength, you lose in speed. They gallop at just 15 miles per hour, while a thoroughbred streaks by at double the pace, leaving the clydesdales in the dust. The ones that make it into those famous ads and parades are an elite group. Since I was born I dreamed of being a budweiser clydesdale. Only program, I was born a donk donkey. Reporter: Just 30 of them make the cut each year. The second you see the parade start and the band goes, the horses pick their head up and they really get flashy. Reporter: They know? Oh yeah. Especially the old timers. They know their job and they like showing off. Reporter: They are graceful, Reporter: A team of six people bathing brushing, and braiding them. Just to get them ready for the day. This is our newest baby. Reporter: It's tempting to think every little clydesdale wants to grow up to be on the stage. This little horse, just days out of the womb, is the star of the new ad. It tells the story of a clydesdale and a breeder, and a powerful relationship that stands the test of time. ♪ I build my life around you ♪ Reporter: People see the clydesdales, what does it mean to them? I think a lot of it is nostalgia. They remember seeing the clydesdale when they were a little kid. It is still the same feeling when you're 70. Reporter: The budweiser clydesdales are of course, not people, but how could we say, after all these years, they're not one of us? And so we choose the collide dales and budweiser want some help naming that little girl. So, send the names n let us know what you think on twitter.
