    Watch the rest of the controversial 84 Lumber Super Bowl immigration ad here: 84 Lumber Super Bowl 2017 Commercial (The Entire Journey) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O68UpBFaN9s “84 Lumber wrote on their website that the second part of the ad was banned from broadcast because it contained “content deemed too controversial” for television.
    The CEO of the agency behind the ad Michael Brunner told Business Insider last week:
    “Fox rejected our original commercial because they determined that some of the imagery, including ‘the wall’ would be too controversial. So we went back and revised the spot to make it acceptable to them. 84 Lumber challenged us to create a thought-provoking 90 second spot that would tell the world who 84 Lumber is and what they stand for – a company looking for people with grit, determination and heart, no matter who they are, where they come from, or what they look like. And while that full story will no longer be told on TV at the Super Bowl, we all believe too strongly in that message to leave it on the editing room floor. So we are going to launch it during the Super Bowl and make the full story available online.” http://www.sfgate.com/technology/businessinsider/article/A-construction-company-has-released-what-will-10905564.php Fox was reportedly charging advertisers just over $5 million for a 30-second advertising slot during the Super Bowl this year, suggesting 84 Lumber paid in the region of $15 million for this ad.
