In Other News: This Year, Budweiser’s Emotional Super Bowl Ad Is About Immigration

| February 1, 2017

Budweiser is known for going sentimental with their Super Bowl commercials . . . usually, they’re about cute animals being friends, and loving their owners . . . stuff like that.

But this year, the ad is about how immigration makes America great.  Sort of.

The ad tells the story of Anheuser-Busch co-founder Adolphus Busch, who came to the U.S. from Germany in the 1850s.  And he didn’t get a warm welcome at first.

The timing makes it SEEM like this is a comment on President Trump’s recent executive order on immigration, but it’s NOT.

At least not intentionally.

An Anheuser-Busch rep said, quote, “Even though it happened in the 1850s, it’s a story that is super relevant today . . . [but] there’s really no correlation with anything else that’s happening in the country.

“We believe this is a universal story that’s very relevant today because probably more than any other period in history . . . today the world pulls you in different directions, and it’s never been harder to stick to your guns.”
