A new ad from Aeromexico hopes to take down borders instead of building them up. The narrated spot clearly is taking aim at Donald Trump and shows the clashes that physical walls and barriers create, but also idealogical separations—included differing opinions on LGBT issues. Instead of separating us, Aeromexico shows us just how connected we all are thanks to travel. “On land, borders can maintain distances, but in the sky, we show you it’s different. Excuse me: I have a job to do.”
The ad was released in May 2016, after Trump made his initial campaign promise of building a wall, but since this weekend’s refugee/immigrant/visitor ban on select countries, we thought it was fitting to share again.
