Unless they are Native Americans, these nudniks have nothing to complain about - just a bunch of bigoted dumb butts who can't see past the end of their noses....

Seriously? These people don't deserve a response from Coke. Twitter away, idiots....hopefully these are the last dying breaths of racist numbskulls.

I read some of the tweeter feeds and a few of the crazy articles on Facebook. Got a News Flash, this is the United States and we are all from immigrants, to be very technical even our own Native Americans we once immigrants from other lands. The commercial was stunningly beautiful, and was nothing but respectful of this country. If someone needs to get their panties in wad they will find something to irritate them. I'm not going to start drinking COKE because of that commercial nor will I have a craving for Budweiser because their super terrific commercial, but folks need to a reality check.

The half time was fantastic - I like Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers and it was very good show.

The commercial was portraying people of different languages enjoying different activities in America, and to me was showing how happy different ethnic groups are happy being American.
Thanks Carrie.

Absolutely disgraceful!! This world has become a nasty place. Or perhaps it always was and social media has given it a louder voice. Thanks for sharing Carrie.

Thanks Carrie, I think a large part of the problem with these people that criticize everyone and everything is that they are in desperate need of a good laxative because judging them by their thoughts, words and actions they really seem to be full of you know what.

How dare them furriners sing OUR song in that gibberish o' theirs! From the looks of some of the tweets, it looks as though a fair number of these moronic-jingoistic-jackass-knuckle-draggers (Go fetch me a brew, Nancy!) have a pretty tenuous relationship with English themselves. Maybe if they had gone to class instead of spending high school behind the gym smoking their daddys' "seegars," they might have (1) learned how to speak their native language and (2) found out just how the heck their own ancestors got to be 'Muricans.

Signed and noted.

My comment is this:

This ad is EXACTLY what the US is all about. If they don't like it THEY can leave (if they can fdin a place that will take them).
