If you wept like a baby while watching Sunday's Budweiser commercial featuring a squeezable Clydesdale horse, you weren't alone – several stars needed a tissue too.
The spot – which told the sentimental tale of a farm boy who raises a fuzzy-wuzzy foal – was one of this year's most memorable Super Bowl ads, and stars fessed up to being verklempt as they watched.
"And yes, as we've already established, the #Clydesdale commercial was the best ever! I cried. So what?" actress Sophia Bush shared Monday on Twitter.

The Super Bowl adstravaganza disappointed me this year. The spots, which sold for a reported $4 million per 30 seconds of airtime, were so lavish, so tricked up by CGI, so weighed down by stars, so tightly loaded to spring into a joke, they suffered from bloat.

Skechers, which featured the reality star in a sexy ad for Shape-Ups during last year's Super Bowl, will instead air a spot that features a French bulldog wearing Skechers' GOrun shoes, according to USA Today. The new kicks are part of Skechers' new high-tech line.
"Kim got us more attention than we ever dreamed," Skechers Fitness president Leonard Armato says. "We have to establish Skechers as more than a lifestyle company."

CAST: Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria and ex-supermodel Cindy Crawford will appear in a 30-second commercial for Diet Pepsi scheduled to debut during the Feb. 6 Super Bowl broadcast, the New York Post reports. The soft-drink company and a rep for Combs would not confirm the scoop, though the ad reportedly shows Diddy en route to an awards show when his car breaks down and he is rescued by a Pepsi truck.
