WATCH: We know why Jeff Bridges was teasing the return of The Dude. And it’s a bit of a let-down.

Well, this is a bit of a letdown.

A few days ago Jeff Bridges shared a clip of himself back in The Dude’d signature cardigan and PJ bottoms from The Big Lebowski and, obviously, everyone freaked out because we’ve waited years for the return of The Dude.

We pondered what it might be… after all, the clip teased ‘02.03.2019’ so we all assumed it was related to the Superbowl this weekend and what delights might be coming.

Then, today, Stella Artois revealed its new ad campaign featuring Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw and… Bridges as The Dude.


Did we all get this excited for a beer ad?

We hope not… but it looks like we did. Ugh.

Watch what happens when Carrie Bradshaw and The Dude change up the usual. If every pour of Stella Artois can help provide access to clean water for someone in need, why choose anything else? Join Carrie and The Dude as they choose to change up the usual and do good.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
