Coca-Cola’s Multilingual Super Bowl Ad Inspired A Complete Meltdown Online

Some of these might be jokes, but it’s so hard to tell anymore. Most of the people upset about the advertisement didn’t even seem to notice the gay couple in it.

1. Last night during the Super Bowl, Coca-Cola debuted its “It’s Beautiful” commercial, which included a rendition of “America the Beautiful” in various languages.

2. It quickly set off a firestorm on Twitter with users who were live-tweeting the event. Many claimed they were switching over to Pepsi.

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

9. 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.

11. 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.

21. 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

22. 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.
