Anheuser-Busch has a portfolio full of creative and hilarious Super Bowl commercials, but this the company that owns Budweiser, Stella Artois and several other brands will debut two ads focused on disaster relief.

"I'm glad you asked", she says.

In the 90 seconds ad, the word "Alexa" was used at least ten times, but there was not much chance of the Amazon Alexa devices at your home triggering by hearing this magical word in the ad.

An algorithm in Amazon's cloud detects matching audio from distinct services and stops additional devices from responding, stated Manoj Sindhwani, Amazon director for speech recognition.
