  • Conservative knuckledraggers offended that anyone would sing about America in a different language

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Governm...-Was-Offensive

    Surprise surprise.

    Nothing here about them still singing ABOUT America. And GOD, for crying out loud.

    Nothing here about how a corporation has the right to free speech.

    Nothing here about how a corporation made a great marketing decision that will likely net them more money.

    Conservativism, folks.

    I remember seeing the ad and thinking WFT was that? I then realized the SB is being watched in every country in the world but I doubt if we will see much of the ad in local markets.

    The ad did make me wish I had a coke bottle to shove up Joe Namath's ass for jinxing us on the coin toss.

      I'm really surprised you did say anything about the ad including what are said to be the first gay parents depicted in a Super Bowl ad.

      The ad, titled ‘It’s Beautiful’, showed classic scenes of American life while ‘America The Beautiful’ played in the background.

      But with a twist, the song was sung in different languages and included a gay couple with their daughter.

      While some appreciated the drinks giant’s love letter to the patriotic spirit of immigrants, others accused Coke of committing ‘corporate suicide’.

      'Hope this F*got chokes on his coke and dies,' one said on Twitter, while others said they would boycott the drink......

        If you cannot tell, it would be a waste of time trying to explain it to you.
        May I suggest though that you first go to the bible and read about the tower of babble, and the lessons it teaches.
        Also take a lesson from John Wayne


        Welcome to the 17th century!!

          I honestly didn't even notice. I was too busy paying attention to the lyrics and laughing about how conservatives were probably tripping over themselves to bitch about it on twitter.

          Just out of curiosity, what's with the about a guy wishing death upon a gay person? You think that's funny?

          Why does that not surprise me?

            IKR. Side note: talking snake, burning bush, animals two by two...they're all pretty ****ing stupid fables, but as a linguist, the Tower of Babel fable is by far the most maddening to me.

            Get a BRAIN. MORANS.

              Have you ever noticed that you ask questions and then answer them?

              I don't wish death on anyone but I do find it kind of funny that the guy on twitter would think a sword swallower could choke to death on anything ......

                I asked three questions, actually. Do you happen to know what a rhetorical question is?

                And your answer here is so much of a stretch that no one could have possibly surmised that was why you were laughing. Perhaps if you were a little more clear in your bigotry...
