Budweiser presents: Real American Heroes. –♪ Real American Heroes ♫ –Today we salute you, Mr. Renaissance Fair Performer. –♪ Mr. Renaissance Fair Performer ♫ –You've taken the barbaric warfare of the 12th century and made it a great outing for the entire family. –♪ Quality time, yeah ♫ –Every night you stand in green tights and pointy shoes and proudly display your manhood. –♪ Standin' tall! ♫ –Armed with swords, battleaxes, and big hammers, you knock each other senseless while we devour giant turkey legs and five-gallon sodas. –♪ Simply delicious ♫ –Sure, we know it's fake, but don't tell us getting clobbered in the face with a spiked ball doesn't hurt a little. –♪ Oh! ♫ –So this Bud's for you, Renaissance Guy, because you'll always be our knight in shining armor. –♪ Someone get a stretcher ♫
I've listened backstage to people applaud. It's like... like waves of love coming over the footlights and wrapping you up. Imagine, to know every night that different hundreds of people love you. They smile. Their eyes shine. You've pleased them. They want you. You belong. Just that alone is worth anything.
