The Coca- Cola Super Bowl Ad

The Coca- Cola Super Bowl Ad

It’s been a while since my last blog post; I should really get more active on here. Any who, so anyone that watched the super bowl or with a social media account has seen or heard of the Coca Cola ad.  This commercial… I just want to go up to the director or who ever came up with the idea and shake their hand. There is just so much ignorance, hate and racism in this country. WHY? I still, to this day, do not understand why. We are a nation of immigrants. Even if they are 10th generation

American their ancestors were immigrant and Coca Cola has done nothing wrong. Their commercial was truly beautiful. You want to know why? Because it depicted this nation as it is, diverse. It’s time that people to start to accept this country as a melting pot. These actors in the commercial represent the different people that live in this country. Muslims, Hispanics, Indian, Jewish, Chinese and the hundreds of more that are citizens of this nation. What upsets me the most is that people hated the song being sung in different languages. To me that was the most touching and beautiful part of the commercial. It, to me at least, showed that though we are from different backgrounds we are one. Did anyone else not see that? It shouldn’t matter the language we speak, the clothes we wear, the color of our skin, or the religion we practice.  America was built as a land of opportunity and diversity, so this commercial has nothing wrong with it. It’s people’s ignorance that stops progression and acceptance. 

Enjoy the video if you have not already! =)

Thanks for reading!

  1. I was so excited when I saw that commercial. For once mainstream America is showing a Hijab-wearing girl in a positive light!

    Seriously though, it was really moving. I applaud Coca Cola. I’ve seen the things the critics of this commercial have been saying, and every argument is just ridiculous. America is beautiful, and the commercial showed just how beautiful it is.

    1. That’s exactly my reaction! It’s just so sad that many people cannot see beyond that. The commercial shows depict people that you could live next to, and it is truly sad to see that people aren’t willing to accept what is already present.
