Get ready for politically-charged Super Bowl commercials

We all know the ads are the best part of the Super Bowl (#kiddingnotkidding). But seriously, all the hype surrounding these commercials is usually worth it. The last couple of years have been disappointing, with very few memorable ads. Here’s hoping 2017 is better.
As President Donald Trump settles into office, several companies are debuting politically-charged ads. Like Budweiser’s on immigration…
…Audi’s equal pay for women…
…and Kia’s on environmental protection.
You could even argue this bizarre Avocados from Mexico is timely, considering Trump’s threats toward imports from Mexico.
Hulu’s first spot for an original series could be seen as politically suggestive. It advertises “A Handmaid’s Tale,” a series that takes place in a dystopian future where women have no right — similar to Trump’s vows to cut Planned Parenthood and contraceptive benefits and repeal Roe v. Wade.
