Budweiser brought back the late Harry Caray to announce the Cubs' World Series win

Legendary sportscaster Harry Caray died in 1998, but he still got to announce the Chicago Cubs winning the 2016 World Series on Wednesday night. Budweiser handed the mic back over to Caray for its commercial that ran right after the Cubs won the World Series for the first time in 108 years.

The ad pieces together old audio clips from Caray's 16 years as a Cubs broadcaster with videos of present-day fans watching the suspenseful Game 7 and later celebrating their team's sweet, sweet victory. Turns out, Caray was absolutely right when he predicted "sure as God made green apples, someday, the Chicago Cubs are going to be in the World Series — and maybe sooner than we think."
