Budweiser has gone to the sentimental side with Super Bowl commercials in the past. You probably remember dogs and horses being friends. This year, the ad is about how immigration makes America great. I think.

The ad tells the story of Anheuser-Busch co-founder Adolphus Busch, who came to the U.S. from Germany in the 1850s.  And he didn't get a warm welcome at first.

The timing makes it seem like this is a comment on President Trump's recent executive order on immigration but apparently, it's not.  At least not intentionally.

An Anheuser-Busch rep said,

"Even though it happened in the 1850s, it's a story that is super relevant today, 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, give it a watch!
