I missed the gay couple, too...isn't that as it should be? I'll bet the beginning of the ad...with the cowboy...got the haters all excited...seeing a "real" American. Don't they know about the vaqueros?

You know what? The first time I saw the add, I missed the gay couple also! I think my brain does not see it as a relevant issue... LOL

What I find funny is that the wingnuts were so busy freaking out about the different languages in the Coke commercial, they almost forgot to freak out about the gay couple featured in the ad.

I love watching their collective heads explode like that!

I do not watch the super bowl either, but I do watch the adds next day on youtube. I just love it!

But this one I saw almost at the same time it aired because of the comments… And yes, It is appalling how many Americans thing America the Beautiful (A gorgeous song) is the national anthem…. It is funny.
Thank you. I am an immigrant. And no, I am not illegal….. thanks.
Bridie, I did not know that, but of course, now I do.
Penny, I just loved the puppy love add. Budweiser always nails it!
John Stamos? Oh yes. Any time!

And by the way Pops I live in Texas. The only thing liberal about the teachers in these schools is their love for the benefits the Unions fight for on behalf of them. Otherwise they are cons to their marrow!

I don't get the liberal reference Pops.....or what that has to do being bigoted.

Don't know why that youtube link reverted to private, it was a Dannon commercial for Greek yogurt. Here it is again. It's suggestive, but funny.

If everyone is a product of "liberal teacher dominated schools" why are there still conservative and intolerant people in America?

Stupid, ignorant and bigoted. All the products of liberal teacher dominated schools. Shameful.


CoachPenney, the first link took me to a cute Budweiser commercial. The second link took me to a YouTube screen that said, "This is Private - Sorry about that. Could you check the link, please? I watched all of the commercials on-line because I was working on something personal at the time.

Volkswagen spent millions of Euro's on their co-themed string of ads. It had to have lowered the National Debt by at least half a trillion dollars.

Almost all of the adds were droll, some were funny while others were punny.. It ended by showing that the engineers that got their wings were the hardworking ones. There's also quite a bit of schtick. "The Gameday - Wings" was the best of them. I flashed on my 17 year old granddaughters attitude when the girl made the comment about rainbows.

Do they have nothing better to be outraged about? I'll add my voice to the chorus...

O όμορφη για ευρύχωρ
α ουρανού
ς, για πορτοκα
λί κύματα του σιταριο
ύ. Για Μεγαλει
ότητές μωβ βουνό πάνω από την πεδιάδα της φρουτώδ
ες! Αμερική
! Αμερική
! Ο Θεός ρίξει χάριτος του για σένα. Και το στέμμα σου καλό με την αδελφότ
ητα, από τη θάλασσα να λάμπει θάλασσα
!

O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain. For purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain! America! America! God shed his grace on thee. And crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea!

Do they not understand the meaning of brotherhood?

We had a Super bowl Party but I was so busy I didn't pay any attention. But I didn't hear anyone here comment one way or the other.

There will always be people just waiting to get their "panties in a twist" about some slight to "the American way!"

People need to just get over themselves.

Wonder if the bigots know that the America the Beautiful lyricist was both gay and a feminist? Gorgeous song, gifted woman, go Coca Cola!

I didn't watch the Super Bowl. First of all, even though I live in the Denver area, I've never cared about football. Secondly, I don't actually have a working TV at the moment.

So, I was kind of blown away when my Facebook exploded with comments about a Coke ad.

The xenophobes are out in force against this one. How dare a company show people singing about America in multiple languages!

The top 3 complaints:
"Do other countries sing their national anthems in English? No. It's AMERICA, dammit!"
-- Um, "America The Beautiful isn't our national anthem, morons. That's "The Star Spangled Banner." You know, the one they sang before the game?

Coke is an American company. I'm not buying they're products ever again.
-- It's "Their" - not "They're." If you're going to complaing about others not using English, you should at least make an effort to use it correctly in your complaint.
-- Also Coca-Cola may have started in America, but it is the very model of a global company. There is not a corner of the world where the Coca Cola logo isn't recognized.

All those illegals should just go home!
-- *Sigh* Not all immigrants are illegal. In fact, most aren't. Anyone who automatically associates immigration with "illegals" is a racist. Period. so, you GFTO - the rest of us don't want you here any more.
