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.

Posted on

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

@CocaCola because of that commercial I'm switching to Pepsi. In America we speak English !!!

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.

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

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
