    I’ m not even American and that’s a offensive ad, because America has allowed some many people from different cultures to come to the country their has to be a common bong that makes them American … and that language would be it … America isn’t the UN .. Would Coke do a ad honouring any other country by highlighting other languages as some how equal to the one spoke in the country they are supposedly honouring..

    America is great because it is a melting pot of nationalities and cultures.
    America is a wonderful hodgepodge of cultures from around the world. We celebrate St Patricks day and Cinco de Mayo. We party in the streets for Chinese New Year and Bastille day. People are free to hold sacred the sabbath, be it on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Or no sabbath at all.
    People come to this country to live in freedom and democracy. Our soldiers have given their lives to keep other countries free. And many of those soldiers are first generation Americans, who want to do their part to protect the adopted country that they love.
    Americans may not all speak English. But neither did most of our ancestors who emigrated to this great country. Immigrants helped to build this country. We are proud Irish/Russian/German/Japanese/Korean/Italian/etc-Americans. No other country in the world is as culturally diverse as America. Why not embrace that fact?

    Our whole country is made from people who came from someplace else. They didn’t all come here speaking English. Anyone who is offended by this commercial needs their head examined. I thought it was fine. My grandparents came here from Europe after World War 2, and they couldn’t speak English. My mother learned to talk English at school. She said there were lots of other kids at her school who had to learn to speak it too. Even today, there are different languages spoken in my own house and none of us saw anything wrong with that commercial. All the commercial was saying is: Americans come from all over the place, but the one thing they all shared in the commercial was Coca Cola. Get over it.

    @Ava: I completely agree with you. I came from South America and the only thing that made me feel like I finally became part of the US was learning english! LANGUAGE is the only thing that unites all our different cultures and makes us all part of the “american” culture. Singing in different languages is almost a subliminal message trying to separate us as a country, that message is saying we are all our own culture instead of ONE. I could’ve thought of so many ways of making this commercial better.

    Dave Says:

    I hate this commercial. Per the immigration law you should learn to speak and fluently understand AMERICAN English before you are allowed to live here. Also I despise that this ad is being done by a company that Bows to the whims of a mad man president in Russia, whos Nazi like regime is persecuting people based on their sexual orientation. For Coca-cola to sponsor the Olympics that are being held in such a Stalin like dictator ship and turn a blind eye and then play this crap commercial is not only dishonorable, but is laughable. It just shows the Corporate greediness will not stop at any point to gain more money and will do what every they need to to suck the world dry. F coca-cola, and their greedy money hungry corporation.

    I thought it was a beautiful commercial. It celebrates what makes America the rich and majestic land that it is… the diversity of cultures that has come together to create OUR COUNTRY.

    This country is not made up of 40-something white men… it is in point of fact comprised of multitudes of rich and colorful cultures which I personally find to be a blessing.

    Bigots may now begin slamming :)

    John Says:

    You’re not even American and you’re offended? How does that work? This commercial is not offensive unless you’re racist or something. The “common BOND” is that they are singing a song that describes America’s beauty. You don’t have to be born in America to love it. You’re ancestors don’t have to be born in America for you to be American.

    And last time I checked, there is no “American” language. The English language comes from England. So for people to say, “This is Amurica, we speak English here.” is pretty dumb. I find it funny. Anyway, this was a great commercial. I give it 6 out of 5 stars lol. :)

    #MURICA!!! :D

    @John: Somebody is still mad at the English for that bit of trouble back in 1776, so “English English” is off the table, I guess.

    Listen, the United States officially has NO official language.
    Yes, the majority of people speak English. That doesn’t make it an
    OFFICIAL language. Look it up. The US was built on people of varied
    Nationalities and cultures who happen to speak different
    Languages. Live with it ya racist boneheads.

    Before America was America, there were varied languages here, varied cultures here. Native Americans didn’t all speak, live or dress the same way. The Vikings found there way to this continent before Columbus found it. The commercial isn’t offensive at all to me, and I’m a proud American. My dad was in the military and I grew up around soldiers. That commercial may be in multiple languages, but why does America have to be about language? Our country is one where people want to immigrate to join it, and our country welcomes them in and gives them opportunities they might not have had before. We’re a melting pot of language and culture, if our founding fathers didn’t have a problem with that, then why should we? They never said that everyone had to speak the same language when they fought for the creation of our country. There were people from other countries who spoke other languages, and there were Native Americans as well who didn’t speak English, who fought to create this country of ours. Why should it matter if a song sung to commemorate our country is sung in different languages? The only thing that should matter is that our country is a melting pot where we enjoy freedom, including the freedom to speak whatever language we are able to speak.

    Andrea Says:

    There is nothing wrong with this commercial. America is a melting pot. And for those who say language is what makes you American please rethink your statement. Just because you learn Spanish and French doesn’t make you a Colombian(Or any other Spanish) or a French. Yes, if you come here we would like for you to learn English but that doesn’t mean people need to get rid or their first language, there for this commercial is fitting for everyone who has ever moved to America.

    In the great cultural cauldron of 20th century America there was one basic ingredient to being an American Caucasian. Well apparently that old fashioned recipe for prejudice is still being used by some when it comes to the racist reaction to the celebration of diversity America, celebrated in recent rendition of America the Beautiful sung in the recent Coca Cola ads.
    Xenophobia was and is as American as Coke and Apple Pie. Only the nationalities change with time. Once upon a time, Irish or Italian was too exotic to be considered an all American beauty. Take a look at some vintage ideas of American beauty http://wp.me/p2qifI-1FT

    I wouldn’t mind it if it was sung in English, but singing in all those different languages make it sound like they don’t want to become Americans, that they want to stay separate.

    @Dave: Our government has no problem letting all the hispanics over here, on our tax dollars, and they DON’T have to speak our language! Is that a problem for you too?

    Mike Bushman Says:

    Coca Cola could easily have sent a powerful message of unity by having all of the singers come together at the end of the commercial and sing the last few phrases together in English. Such a commercial would have sent a powerful message that America celebrates diversity, honors multilingual citizens and welcomes immigrants from all over the world to join in becoming part of a nation that shares important common bonds.

    I suspect that most but not all of today’s trauma could have been avoided had the producers not worried about offending people who believe it’s good to create new communities segregated by race, religion and language. Suggesting that people who move to the United States should learn English over time is racist to some academic elites and particularly to self-interested politicians who see personal gain in dividing America along language lines. It’s possible that the ad’s producers worried that having everyone sing in English at the end would have been taken as a slap against those in the United States illegally, because legal immigrants are required to learn English as a condition of citizenship. Whatever the reason, Coca Cola missed an opportunity to create a point of unity. If their intent was to generate controversy, they have succeeded.

    My first two novels — Melting Point 2040 and Secession 2041 — tell stories of what awaits if we allow ourselves to be re-segregated by race, religion, class or language. We should welcome voices in every language to America. But we should also want to welcome immigrants into a nation where we can speak together and develop a united direction.

    Calculated Move Says:

    This was a well calculated move on the part of Coca-Cola. I would guess that they ran this ad for interest groups and received similar reactions to those being expressed nationwide. This is a succesful ad for that very reason…it is getting mass publicity and recognition in a wave of expensive and flashy Super Bowl commercials. They knew that their product would still be served at every McDonalds and Burger King come Monday morning and as much as people are protesting the ad, I don’t see anyone suggesting a boycott…do you? All this typing is getting me thirsty, I think I’ll have a Coca-Cola.
