SUPER BOWL: 84 Lumber Ad Too Controversial

posted by Scott Stevens -

84 Lumber Ad 

It tackles the topic of immigration from Mexico and a border wall head on.

A lot of people are talking about the Budweiser pro-immigration ad during the Super Bowl, but one ad took that message even further -- and was banned from the game.

84 Lumber created an ad depicting a Mexican woman and her small daughter traveling from their home to try to get to the United States. FOX declined to air the whole thing, calling it too controversial.

The full spot depicts the mother and daughter's journey through dusty country until they encounter a large wall. They seem to be thwarted until they walk along the wall a while and find a set of large doors to walk through. The tag line:  “The will to succeed is always welcome here.”
