After winning his first playoff game in five years on Sunday, Peyton Manning didn't want to talk about the San Diego Chargers or the upcoming AFC Championship game against New England or what's in store for him in the future. There was only one thing on Manning's mind and it's not what you think it is, unless you think it's beer.  

"What's weighing on my mind is how soon I can get a Bud Light in my mouth after this win," Manning said. 

The brain trust at Bud Light heard about the quote and as you can imagine, they acted on it quickly. Bud Light's Twitter account sent out a tweet just after midnight with a vine of Manning's quote included in it. 

Manning seems to be trying to inadvertently pitch as many products as possible this week. Almost every other word Manning yelled on Sunday was 'Omaha,' something Omaha Steaks and the city of Omaha, Nebraska seemed to take great joy in. 

Bud Light probably needed the good press the most though, especially after they made a blunder on Twitter involving the NFL's final four playoff teams. As you can see below, Bud Light only got half of them right in a tweet on Monday that has since been deleted.
