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:

The Football Drinking Game You Shouldn’t Play This Sunday

Sick of pansy drinking games that require you to take a baby sip every time you look through the 10-page rulebook? Real drinking games should be easy and have you plastered and grasping the earth for dear life by halftime.

Taco Bell’s new Super Bowl ad plays up their “Live Más” slogan, featuring 87 year-old Bernie Goldblatt letting loose on a football field in a suped-up motorized scooter. Note: The sheer joy on his face as he throws his hands into the air, breathing in the sheer exhilaration of life is priceless.

The commercial takes “viewers on an unforgettable night depicting that anyone at any age can LIVE MÁS,” explains Taco Bell PR. The 60-second teaser includes shots of “Grandpa” careening around posts, knocking over water coolers and escaping security while stunting wheelies — check 0:42.

The full commercial will follow Goldblatt and his friends gallivanting in the night while the band fun.’s song “We are Young” plays in the background. In Spanish, of course.

Oh, Taco Bell.
