Controversial Super Bowl Coke Commercial Adds Klingon; No Response Yet From Space Racists
Great Moments in Advertising
If you somehow managed to miss the latest instance of Racists Being Racist About Things, A) congratulations, I envy you, and B) this video will require a bit of explanation. It’s a spoof of Coke’s Super Bowl ad, which featured “America the Beautiful” being sung in different languages. Racists objected to it, because America is a country founded on the principles of equality, freedom, and that people who don’t speak English are worth less than people who do. Stephen Colbert did an excellent takedown of the “controversy.” And now GarlicJacksonComedy has given the video a geeky twist. No word yet from Morse Code-phobics, a group just as ridiculous as people who think Spanish shouldn’t be spoken in a Coke ad.
