Absurdly Driven looks at the world of business with a skeptical eye and a firmly rooted tongue in cheek.

May I admit I'm tired of it?

The two-year carnival that is the presidential campaign is about to roll onto our prime-time screens, just as many people, suspect, merely want to scream.

With truth in short supply and hissy invective more common than Starbucks, Monday night's debate is just as likely to be a poor sitcom as rich with enlightenment.

While I will attempt to avoid the whole thing, you are already perhaps limbering up for the show.

To help you along your way, here's a new ad from Mexican beer brand Tecate.

It involves a wall.

Yes, Tecate has decided to tweak, nay mock, Donald Trump's notion of a wall being built between the US and Mexico, with the latter apparently being delighted to pay for it.

The ad reveals that Tecate has already built its own wall.

Is it to keep Americans out? Not at all.

Instead, it's a tiny little wall upon which Mexicans and Americans can rest their beer and get to know each other.

It's an interesting conceit.

Brands getting involved in politics is a little like priests getting involved in your sex life.

It's a dangerous thing to do, as someone might think you don't know what you're talking about.

Tecate, however, insists it really isn't playing politics, despite the ad being scheduled to run during the debates.

"We are totally neutral. We don't have any political point-of-view or affiliation. We just want to tell a story where people from two bordering countries are united by beer," Tecate vice-president Felix Palau told Ad Age.

Some might fear his explanation is as believable as much of what you'll hear in the debate itself.

Some might also fear that Tecate has a very narrow idea of who drinks beer.

All it shows are men, which shows a slightly limited vision of interpersonal relations as well as human-beer relations.

Especially as one of the candidates is, well, a woman.

Still, you may need a beer or two before debate night is over.

Whatever your political proclivities, I trust that you'll find a way to get through it without building more walls between you and your fellow human.

We need each other, at least on occasion.

Company, as the great modern philosopher Billy Joel reminded us, is better than drinking alone.
