Anheuser-Busch has been called “The King of Beers” and for decades Budweiser was America's top selling beer. Being one of America's biggest advertising companies has likely contributed to Anheuser-Busch InBev being named the #1 Most Admired Beverage Company for the second year in a row. This advertisement is for Budweiser, although the commercial advertises the journey and story of Adolphus Busch, the co-founder of Anheuser-Busch.

The purpose of the commercial is to sell beer, but the meaning behind it is to allude to the what good can come of immigration.

Prime time super commercial spots cost millions of dollars, but it is hard to imagine a better date to air a brand new commercial. Additionally, the large audience also provided an opportunity for Anheuser-Busch to release a pro-immigration message. If one is to look deeply at the 2017 Budweiser commercial, it is clear that the company values immigration and those who wish to better themselves like Adolphus Busch.
That is a monumental number considering there are so many soft drink and beverage choices to select from. Also it is proven that Coke’s market share is seventeen percent higher than the next two competitors.

This “must have” mentality ensures that the product is looked at as the prime candidate for consumption because they provide a great taste at a low cost. Coca-Cola also uses kairos to their advantage by airing their advertisement at a great time.
Most people probably think that allowing eighteen year olds to drink legally would create more car crashes and increase their medical bills, but 18 year olds are becoming more responsible. In 2010, the alcohol industries contributed over $400 billion towards the U.S. economy (“Economic Contributions of the Distilled Spirits Industry.”) This is due to the fact that the alcohol industry provided nearly 3.9 million people with jobs throughout the U.S. What this shows is that the alcohol industry produces an extreme amount of money for the economy. The obvious part of allowing eighteen year olds to drink is that it would create a new range of customers for bars, restaurants, and clubs. With eighteen year olds now allowed to consume alcohol, bars, restaurants, and clubs would see their profits increase tremendously with all of these new adults eager to get out and have a good time with their friends. People might think that this creates a new place for them to just get drunk and be reckless, but it actually gives them a safe place to drink responsibly so they are kept off the streets where they could be seriously harmed.
