Rejected Languages For Coke’s ‘Un-American’ Super Bowl Ad’

cokesuperbowl

Last weekend, we were given yet another reason to lose faith in humanity, courtesy of the internet’s reaction to Coca-Cola’s should-not-have-been-controversial-but-sadly-somehow-became-so Super Bowl ad. The commercial, which overlaid a montage of American landscapes with a multilingual medley of “America the Beautiful”, spawned all sorts of outrage from angry viewers, who proceeded to call Coke “terrorist” and “communist.”

In case you didn’t get it the first time, YouTube comedy group Garlic Jackson Comedy has now created a parody version to really hit home just how absolutely ridiculous the whole fiasco really was. Their version features all the languages that didn’t make the commercial’s final cut, including dolphin, “Charlie Brown Adults,” and the fake sign language from Nelson Mandela’s funeral, as well as renames English into “Good Ol’ American.”

Check out the ad below:

America is about more than just speaking English. America is supposed to be about equality, uniting together regardless of race and freedom of speech.

Well, it used to be about that, anyway.
