The Coca-Cola Super Bowl Commercial 2014 has sparked uproar in the social media. The patriotic song "America the Beautiful" was sang in the ad in different languages. Apparently, the Americans were not so pleased at it and even suggested to boycott the soda product.
Have a look at the video below.

The song "America the Beautiful" was sang in Hindi, Keres, Filipino, Mandarin, Arabic, Spanish, Hebrew and Senegalese-French, aside from English. You can view the official YouTube channel of Coca-Cola to see all the children who loaned their voices for the big game commercial.
"Worst Super Bowl Ad ever, it's an American song and shouldn't be sang in different languages," one person wrote.
"Offensive, the American language is English, my great grandfather instilled that into my family as he arrived Ellis Island in the 20's, I wish more people respected America and our culture that expecting us to accept theirs in our country," another one commented.
American Radio and Television Host Glen Beck said Coca-Cola was trying to "divide the people politically. That's all this ad is," he said. "It's an in-your-face, if you don't like it, if you're offended by it, then you're a racist, if you do like it, well then you're for immigration," he added. "That's all this is to divide the people."
The 60-minute ad was Coca-Cola's attempt to exhibit America's "incredible diversity." It shows people from all walks of life singing the song in their own languages.
Diversity is a wide subject. It incorporates reverence and acceptance. It means being able to understand that each individual has a unique personality and recognize each individual's differences, which include race, origin, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, political beliefs and other principles.
Do you think the Coca-Cola Super Bowl Commercial 2014 was a disgrace and unpatriotic? Was it derogatory to American heritage?
