The Budweiser SuperBowl Ad This Year is About Immigration
You may have heard Sean and Bethany talking about the new Superbowl ad for Budweiser. You know how they usually do sweet, sentimental ad at some point during the game? Well this year it's about immigration.
The ad tells the story of Anheuser-Busch co-founder Adolphus Busch, who came to the U.S. from Germany in the 1850s.
Adolphus didn't have an easy go of it at first.
The timing of the ad is a little suspicious considering Trump's recent executive order on immigration, but Anheuser-Busch says it has nothing to do with that.
A rep from the company says,
"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."
Here's the ad, decide for yourself -
