Budweiser Claims Super Bowl Immigration Ad Not Anti-Trump

| Infowars,

Commercial not directed toward President Trump’s immigration policies, company claims.

Macro-brew beer conglomerate Anheuser-Busch has produced a pro-immigration commercial intended to be aired during Super Bowl Sunday.

The multi-million dollar, minute-long ad follows the journey of German immigrant Aldophus Busch, who arrives during a chaotic 19th century America.

The Busch character is shoved and berated by old-timey Americans, who tell him, “You’re not wanted here,” and, “Go back home.”

Even though the ad addresses a timely, hot-button national issue, Budweiser bosses claim they didn’t intend it as political commentary.

“It’s true, Adolphus Busch made an incredible journey to this country, and that’s really what this is about,” Budweiser VP Ricardo Marques told AdWeek.

“It’s about his vision, his dream, everything that he doest to achieve that.”

“Even though it happened in the 1850s, it’s a story that is super relevant today. That’s what we’re honing in on; it’s the pursuit, the effort, the passion, the drive, the hard work, the ambition, that’s really what this is about more than anything else.”

Asked if the commercial was a political statement against President Donald Trump’s hardline stance on immigration and border control, the vp alleged that was not their intent.

“There’s really no correlation with anything else that’s happening in the country,” Marques says. “We believe this is a universal story that is 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.”

AdWeek reports the AB InBev subsidiary is spending about $15 million producing and promoting the ad, which they hope will re-crown them the “King of Beers.”

On a side note Budweiser, Anheuser-Busch’s flagship lager beer, receives an “awful” rating of 58 out of 100 on the online beer review site BeerAdvocate.com.

    This Bud VP lies just like Obama and the rest of the leftist. Like I need another reason not to drink bud products.

  • Chas No

    Jihadi terrorists aren’t coming here to make beer.

  • Billygoat

    Adolphus didn’t practice Islam, a political system that teaches believers to kill non-believers.

  • Dang

    Nice ad. But at this time it’s clearly a political statement to be “cool.”
    I kinda wish I drank their crappy beer just so I could stop.

  • Hanzo

    ” …. super relevant today”. This is the VP of Budweiser? Really? Budweiser is very transparent in their message. Who do they think they are fooling?

  • Brutus974

    So I guess today, upon arriving, Adolphus Busch would be given welfare?

    That’s how we do things today, right?

  • TSgt Ciz

    I don’t think these refugee/immigrants are likely to be big beer drinkers.
    But the people the odd terrorist who sneaks in to kill or maim… yeah that would be your clientele Budwiser. Those Americans just might remember that when they make their next purchase.

  • Lokki

    Just two questions:
    1. Did Adophus Busch immigrate legally?
    2. Is there any documentation of the “Go home; you’re not wanted here” remarks or are they an invented narrative?

    Dear NFL, you do realize that for many years people have watched the Superbowl for the ads. Keep up with this crap with the ads and the halftime show and your ratings will soon rival the NHL.

  • Lee Enfield

    Rotten pi$$ water beer. Haven’t had a drink of that crap since high school and developed a sense of taste.

    That’s because beeradvocate.com, is for snotty beer snobs, who think every ‘hand crafted’ beer is the beer to end all beer. And it must be IPA! Not defending the commercial, but the last paragraph, means absolutely nothing.
