For the football-challenged readers, there was this fairly important game this past Sunday called the Super Bowl. It's the final championship game of the year, so it garners a lot of attention. Because there are so many people watching it, commercial ad time is at a very high premium, so companies pull out all the stops to make their ad spots memorable. In recent years, there is as much anticipation and post-game discussion about the commercials as there is about the game, which I can only describe using a phrase of a previous occupant of the White House: "uniquely American".
This year was no different. For the purposes of this blog, however, there is only one commercial that has really set tongues wagging, and not in a good way. I am referring, of course, to the Coca Cola commercial, in which the song "America the Beautiful" was song by people of a variety of colors, nationalities, and sexual orientation. Oh yeah, parts of it were sung in languages other than English.
