Budweiser, America’s most iconic beer, has somehow come under fire for being “pro-immigrant”. The statements being made are in response to Donald Trump’s immigration ban.
The advertisement set for Super Bowl LI (51) depicts an Adolphus Busch arriving in a new world.
When he arrives, he is met with stares, statements saying “You’re not wanted here!”, which are reflective of a time when immigration was more of an issue than it is today.
The one-minute ad adheres to the struggle and adversity of new members arriving in America to search for a prosperous life.
The foundation of America was built on the hard work and dreams of immigrants looking for a future. Budweiser created a beer that is just as iconic as America itself.
The ad ends with the tagline:
“When nothing stops your dream, this is the beer we’ll raise.”
