Wow, Coca-Cola… we’re going to guess you did not see this mess coming, huh? In what is already to proving to be one of the most controversial Super Bowl spots in years, Coke created an ad in which the song “America the Beautiful” is sung in various languages over lots of beautiful footage of people of all types.
Apparently singing a song about America in any language other than English is totally unacceptable to a whole lot of TV viewers out there, though!
No sooner had the ad run than the internet lit up with the enraged comments of people saying the ad was a disgrace (we’re of course paraphrasing the language used…).
Take a look for yourself – offensive or lovely? And for the record, people… this is not the National Anthem, so stop calling it that….
