Ahead of this weekend's highly-anticipated Super Bowl football extravaganza, here's one of the just-released ads that will be part of it. Beer-maker Budweiser is one of the traditional advertisers in a sporting event that also features the top pop singers of the day - Michael Jackson's performance drew more viewers than the actual game in 1993. An estimated 100 million viewers at any given moment are watching the match just in the USA. See what you think of this year's Bud effort. Inevitably it's stirring comment in the current climate because of its immigration story line - shortly after taking office less than a fortnight ago, President Trump signed a 90-day moratorium on immigrants from seven mainly Muslim countries entering the USA, and a 120-day ban on entry for refugees.
