Anheuser-Busch has unveiled a nation-wide US TV ad campaign for its new hard cider brand, Johnny Appleseed.

The 30-second spot, which debuts today (6 May), will focus on cable and late-night shows, the US unit of Anheuser-Busch InBev said. Set to dance track 'Jealous' by Chromeo, the ad features a voiceover describing the drink as a “refreshingly sweet and intense hard cider, with a crisp apple bite... best served on the rocks”.

The 5.5% abv brand launched in the US off-trade last month and is due on draught in the Summer.

A-B InBev's rival, MillerCoors, also launched a new product into the US's fast-growing cider category last month, Smith & Forge

Meanwhile, A-B InBev began rolling out its Stella Artois Cidre brand to all 50 US states in January.
