Bud Light Giving All of California Free Beers if Mexico Beats Brazil

The company said if Mexico breaks the "curse of the fifth" and advances to the World Cup quarterfinals, it would provide the celebratory beer

Bud Light has promised to give away free beer to everyone in the state of California if Mexico beats Brazil Monday.

The company announce earlier this month that if Mexico broke the "curse of the fifth" and advanced to the World Cup quarterfinals, it would help soccer fans celebrate with free beer.

Since the 1994 World Cup, Mexico has not been able to advance past the Round of 16 in the tournament — a defeat Mexican soccer fans have called the "curse of the fifth game."

But after Mexico moved on from the Group stage despite a 3-0 loss to Sweden but thanks to South Korea's surprise 2-0 triumph over Germany, Bud Light reiterated the promise on Twitter:

"South Koreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeea, this is for you, carnales! #MEXSWE," Bud Light tweeted.

In a statement, Bud Light on Thursday said it will release full details of the deal "should El Tri prevail, but for now we do not want to jinx them."
