Coca Cola Super Bowl 2014 Commercial 'America The Beautiful' + Comments

Some Americans lost their shit yesterday. Because this:



Did you see that?

Blatantly disturbing scenes!!!!

Jks.

That's what some comments on social media are saying. Here's a sample, from BuzzFeed:


@CocaCola because of that commercial I'm switching to Pepsi. In America we speak English !!!
@CocaCola You're done. Pepsi all the way. Go to the Middle East and sell your product.
@CocaCola go fuck yourself for the commercial last night. This is America.

Others insisted that Coke as a brand was now un-American, or even communist.

@CocaCola. How the fuck r u gonna have foreigners sing the our national anthem....lol
@CocaCola That commercial PISSED me off. We speak English in this Country! http://t.co/ffPfNrS7Dg
@CocaCola way to encourage the country to get further from our English language! #americaisbeautiful speak English or get out!

While many others were furious that an American brand would release a Super Bowl commercial in any language other than English.

@CocaCola I speak English. I understand that is wrong in your eyes. No thanks.
Epic fail, @CocaCola. My father, and over half my family, emigrated to America and learned to speak ENGLISH! #AmericaIsBeautiful...
Big mistake Coca-Cola, big mistake #speakamerican

Others took it even further, calling Coca-Cola terrorists.

@CocaCola Whats with the Superbowl commercial? Do you all support Terrorists or what, bad choice in taste. I love America personally.
@CocaCola fuck you guys. You're some goddamn terrorists. You're shit is rank.
I am no longer drinking Coke because they used terrorists in their commercials. #TeamPepsi
When did coke get bought out by terrorists?..

It also inspired a handful of hashtags, including #SpeakAmerican…

The commercial with America the Beautiful being sung in so many different languages??? #speakAmerican
Coca-Cola and Cheerios have been absolutely disgraceful tonight.#speakamerican #Benghazi

And the #boycottcoke.

You can't sing an American song in another language! #boycottcoke

Interestingly enough, very few people noticed the fact that the commercial also included a gay couple.

Coke loses my respect for putting a gay couple in the video. I couldn't give a fuck about the Spanish song
Coca-Cola and Cheerios have been absolutely disgraceful tonight.#speakamerican #Benghazi

Outside of predominantly conservative pockets of Twitter and on Coke’s Facebook page, most commenters are supportive of the commercial, with many of the top comments lauding it.
