Super Bowl Sunday is almost upon us. Whether you're an Atlanta Falcons fan or a New England Patriots fan is irrelevant (as far as commercials go). The Super Bowl has long been a huge attraction for viewers interested in seeing half-time show performers and those wonderfully zany commercials. The folks on Madison Avenue have always designed ads to coerce consumers into spending money. But no one could have imagined how President Trump's executive orders would come into play in commercials planned and shot long before he entered into office.

So, if you want to take a break from politics, and are hoping to escape by watching some football and highly-anticipated commercials, guess again.

No doubt the ads will still be enjoyable as fans feast on chicken wings and guzzle down cans of beer, but try to keep the debates down to a minimum and have some fun.

And speaking of beer

Budweiser's upcoming minute-long spot will recreate German immigrant Adolphus Busch's 1857 journey to New Orleans, where two men hissed at him, telling the future company founder to go back home, he was not wanted there. After moving to St. Louis, Busch would soon meet his future partner, Eberhard Anheuser.

Other water cooler topics come Monday morning

A Persil laundry detergent ad will feature TV host "Bill Nye the Science Guy," which will probably combat Donald Trump's climate change hoax ideology. Pepsi's Super Bowl ad for Lifewtr, a premium brand of bottled water, aims to help everyone become #MoreInspired by the beauty of art and culture.

The Trump administration recently vowed to wipe out the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities. Audi, the German luxury car maker, will boast a feminist-dad ad, pledging a commitment to bridging the gender wage gap.

So, fans can expect to be tuning in to an exciting game of football with a side dish awareness-filled commercials.

Also, there's no telling what the innovative Lady Gaga might throw in for good measure during the half-time show.
