One of the most commented-on commercials at the USA's Super Bowl 2017 football showdown turned out to be from a hitherto little-known company that deals in building supplies. 84 Lumber chose to tell the story of a Mexican mother and daughter making their way up to the USA. It has inevitably stirred debate, coming as it does shortly after President Trump signed an executive order to build a wall separating the USA from its southern neighbour, Mexico, to reinforce measures already in place along their 2,000-mile border.
