Budweiser has released it's new Super Bowl ad and it's getting a lot of attention at this time when immigration is a hot topic.
The 60-second spot relives Adolphus Busch's hardships as an immigrant from Germany. He eventually lands in St. Louis where he meets fellow German immigrant Eberhard Anheuser, with whom he eventually forms the Anheuser-Busch Company. The commercial was produced long before President Trump's controversial order to ban immigrants and visitors from seven countries, and the company is avoiding making any political comparisons.
The company said in a statement, "We created the Budweiser commercial to highlight the ambition of our founder, Adolphus Busch, and his unrelenting pursuit of the American dream," adding that it hopes it will "resonate with today’s entrepreneurial generation — those who continue to strive for their dreams."
