    rob: basically someone is happy they believe that the company deluded them to think that their country is beautiful.

    They`re responding to the Conservative Republican talking heads that tried to rile up outrage because the commercial showed Americans that speak languages other than English. The United States does not have an official language. See this very recent IAB post for an explanation.

    Ignorami criticized the commercial because the song was sung in foreign languages and featured the first gay couple in any super bowl commercial. People proving their lack of education, basically.

    PS - interesting that the first two people to comment are Canadians, who see multi-lingual national requirements every day (all products sold in Canada must have information in both English and French, as we get lots of those products here, too) yet we have no such requirement in the U.S. with no official language. Then you get people like my wife, who thought it strange when I was watching Spanish language television that "all the commercials are for United States businesses and use dollars rather than Pesos" and I told her, "well, this is a United States TV station" - she absent-mindedly assumed Spanish language meant it was broadcast from Mexico. We live in San Diego and get lots of Mexican Radio (Whoa-oh, Radio)

    I see a smooth talking sales man using flattery to sell their product to the masses.

    inb4 "Canada is Everyone", "Britain is Everyone", and every other multiculturalism touting piss pot on the planet "is Everyone", etc, etc.

    @LandoGriffin Our bilingualism is just a technicality/formality. We`re not truly a French speaking country, it`s just Quebec.

    The Official Languages Act is a Canadian law that came into force on September 9, 1969, which gives English and French equal status in the government of Canada.

    If you have a problem with the Coke ad, go back to wherever your forefathers and mothers hated so much they had to leave...and learn the language.

    This whole exceedingly odd fracas over a commercial reminds me of something I`ve read lately.

    A woman answers her phone in a grocery line and starts speaking a language some pushy moron behind her can`t understand. Said moron waits until she`s finished with the call to abruptly inform her that, "you live in America now, speak English, not Spanish, or go back to where you came from." To which she replies, "I was speaking Navajo, but can I interest you in going back to England?"

    Priceless.

    I assume the cowboys are there as a homage to America`s "wild west" past, even though romanticizing that part of our history is romanticizing genocide of American Indians, racism against anyone non-white, rampant xenophobia, destruction of our environment, and the deluded white argument of "manifest destiny".

    @QueenZira
    I`ve heard that story before too on Navajo language boards, it never fails to make me laugh!

    "Gay"

    Really. What`s the point in young men saying this when they don`t like something? I really don`t understand it. So childish.

    I`m not American, so I thought the commercial was alright.
    What I find amusing is that the commercial was meant to show that America is awesome, and the reaction to it shows one of the many reasons why it isn`t.
