When was Episode I shot?
August 2005. BudDry.com went live about one year later. Yeah, we were lazy.
When was Episode II shot?
We finished the script for the second Bud Dry installment in November 2006 and shot it in February 2007. It went web-live days later.
Who drew/wrote the Agent Bud Dry comics?
Jacques Crabbe, naturally.
When was Episode III shot?
Photography and script were done in July 2007. It went live in January 2008.
When was Episode IV shot?
We shot Bud Dry IV in Las Vegas in May 2009. It went live in late July 2009.
What about Bud Dry Episode V?
Shot in February 2010 in the Caribbean country of St. Kitts and Nevis and released (amazingly) less than a month later, this is the first Bud Dry without a female part. But then again, we loved Lawrence of Arabia too.
Any news about Bud Dry Episode VI?
We've started on the
script. (The theme is "boobs.") And we'll probably start shooting it in summer 2010. We're also simultaneously working on Episode VII (also "boobs") and more Bud Dry comics.
What's this I heard about a secret Bud Dry episode?!
It's true. Even though Facebook sucks, we've released a terrible Bud Dry episode for Facebook fans only. It's the least we can do for people suffering Facebook's terrible anti-privacy practices. Become a fan and share the glory.
Why ask why? Try Bud Dry. What a silly name for a beer. Um, it's “dry”?! Whatever. It's an easy product name to parody. There's a guy named Bud who happens to have dry wit. And another guy named Bud who is a super secret agent with a sexy pal who keeps saying "dry" to him. Near-Reasonably clever.
Expect more plays on the bud dry name. We have a comic strip about an impotent fungus in the works... you know, an asexual spore? Get it? Bud Dry? Ugh... And we've also got a marijuana curing device called... you guessed it, Bud Dry, in the queue. (“You can dry your weed in it!”) We'll also have more unsavory barroom/hotel adventures with Bud and his dry wit. And probably some more cleavage too. Guys like soaked breasts after all.
Do they even still make Bud Dry?
Yes. It's readily available in some markets. In others, like ours, you have to ask your local distributor to stock it at a local store. On Anheuser-Busch's site, they say, "Bud Dry is brewed with balanced hop character offering full flavor but a very clean, less-sweet finish." You can see some real live Bud Dry beer in Episode II. Is that sort of a visual pun? Do those exist?
Is Bud Dry a good beer?
We like it. It's crisp and light. Very little aftertaste. Perfect by the pool or in the hot tub.
Won't you get sued by Budweiser?
No, not successfully at least. We know our rights under intellectual property laws and our legal advisors assure us our parody is protected as long as we're willing to pay them to fight. Worst case scenario, Budweiser would make us an offer we couldn't refuse for the domain and we'd reluctantly move the content elsewhere. But if Anheuser-Busch is smart, they'll purchase some advertising from us or otherwise partner with us!
Who are those hot chycks with the cleavage/legs/etc.? (most frequent question)
They want to remain partially anonymous... likely to avoid the sort of person who'd ask this question.
I want to write/draw/act/pose/etc. for you. Can I?
Maybe. Send us an email with your credentials.
Do you make any money from this?
Not enough to cover our expenses. And we're wearing rose tinted shades even though our financial future ain't so bright. Lifetime Google ad revenue of $29.33 through 5/2009 almost covers the production (beer) expenses for Episode I.
Why do it then if it costs you?
How do I advertise on buddry.com?
Email us (below) for details, or just do it through Google. It *might* be nice to worry about making a profit some day.
