84 Lumber’s 2017 Super Bowl 51 teaser
In a 90-second ad, a immature Latina lady and her mom transport opposite a country, clearly perplexing to enter a United States. The ad depicts a hardships and a problems a mom and daughter face in their travels, and ends ambiguously, with viewers being urged to “see a end during Journey84.com.”
However, immediately after a ad aired Sunday, Journey84.com was inaccessible. The association seemed to acknowledge a problem on Twitter, though claimed a problem was resolved during 8:23 p.m. However, amicable media reports prove a website was still taken for some time.
It is misleading either a swell in web trade caused a website to pile-up or there are other factors during play. However, a website went behind adult during around 8:45 p.m.

After a impulse of despair, a dual find a door, by that they travel into an capricious future.
The initial announcement was published online Thursday and has been noticed some-more than a million times. Reaction, however, has been mixed, with some-more than 2,500 people fondness a video and some-more than 1,700 disliking it. But 84 Lumber has embraced a argumentative aspect of a advertisement, fixation a warning on a website before users watch a video: “Contains calm deemed to argumentative for TV.”
“I consider we’re all prepared for clever opinions from both sides of a aisle,” a arch officer of a artistic group obliged for a ad told Ad Week. “And that’s OK. Those differences are what make us and this nation great. And if we wish to make certain everyone’s meditative about a housing attention and articulate about your company, what improved approach to do that than during a Super Bowl?”
