Budweiser 2017 Super Bowl Commercial About Immigration

Budweiser's Super Bowl Commercial About Immigration Is Just What We Need to See Right Now

What would Donald Trump think of this Super Bowl commercial?

A new one-minute ad from Anheuser-Busch titled "Born the Hard Way" follows the story of its cofounder Adolphus Busch as he travels from Germany to St. Louis in 1857. We see him face rough waters as he crosses the ocean and how he's treated once he gets here, being told, "You're not wanted here, go back home!"

"This commercial shows the start of Budweiser's journey, and while it is set in the 1800s, it's a story we believe will resonate with today's entrepreneurial generation — those who continue strive for their dreams," said Budweiser Vice President Ricardo Marques in a press release.

Although Marques also said there's no correlation between the ad and Trump's policies, it comes after the president signed two controversial immigration orders during his first week in office: one calling for a border wall between the US and Mexico, and the other that bans all refugees and citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
