BTW, Coke has been attacking traditional family for at least a decade now. That people are just now waking up to their anti-family crusade is more an indictment on US!
I’ve been “hittin’ COKE” upside their heads for 55 years. I drink no form of soda. Booze, yes. Soda, no.
No, I don’t.
Why the hell not? *WHACK!!*
what did Coke do? I must have missed it
Does anyone have a list of COKE Products(and PEPSI Too(THEY SUCK TOO)).
My drink is the Arnold Palmer - no issues boycotting Coke - except I love Atlanta.
don’t drink soda...cept holidays.
their America the Beautiful pooper bowl ad was disgusting...
it is not meant to be sung in a foreign language and it is not suppose to highlight muzzys in burqas......
Ordered one on Saturday. Had everything to do with Israel and nothing to do with Coke.
I’m not a big soft drink consumer but when I do drink on I usually buy a Coke product...but never again. I’ll never spend a dime on their branded horse piss again.
Nothing as long as you’re ok with America the beautiful being song in Spanish, and Arabic and other languages other than English. I’m not ok with it.
Were there “muzzies in burqas” in the ad?
America the Beautiful isn’t the national anthem.
I’d rather wrestle a pig in the mud. Probably be just as effective...
We had chance to try this at friends recently. It’s pretty neat. We ‘RE buying one for home and one for a gift.
Pepsi as a corporation is very liberal and anti-second amendment.
America The Beautiful being sung...
The Coke board has some serious explaining to their stockholders. Corporate advertising is supposed to make an emotional connection with its customer base, enhance its product’s appeal and increase sales. Coke executives are trying to blaze some sort of politically correct marketing plan. In the short term sales will decrease since they clearly alienated some of their most loyal customers. It is yet to be seen if the meal of the new America will be a burger, fries and a coke.
Sounds good. Supporting the Israelis seems like a better use of my time.
I just watched the youtube. Get a grip and join the real world. If yoy boycot everything you don’t like you will be very lonely, hungry and have nothing to ware,watch, or listen to.
I personally don’t like the ragheads or the fags but what are you going to do. Rather than give up coke products? You might want to find out everything coke has an intrest in before you give up all coke products. Just sayin.
My reaction was strongly WTF?!
With ‘Kumbaya’ or ‘If I Had a Hammer’, OK. But that song?
Did their MBA adult children actually believe it was a good thing to do? Educated idiots. More New Coke.
They were using fetal cells to test their products, they are anti-second amendment, plus, I think they donated money to Obama, IIRC.
Like your post.
For a while I kept a running list of all the retail stores that various FReepers demanded we boycott.
Eventually the only one left was the St Vincent de Paul Thrift store.
Then somebody posted an anti-Catholic screed.
I believe most big businesses in the US realize the inevitability of progressive control and are attempting to buy insurance against it. Look at the list of Podesta’s supporters:
Good Lord. The Democrats should have waited on their Conservative twitter rant about Cheerios because they only had to wait a week and change Cheerios to Coke. I didn’t like the Commercial, but as I ponder it while drinking my Diet Coke, all I say it was that I didn’t particularly like the commercial. There were other commercials I didn’t like but still going to purchase their product.
Nope not at all. And I find it pathetic how many people have an issue with it. Really it’s just dumb, America is NOT and has NEVER BEEN an exclusively English speaking country, get over it\, get over yourselves.
But of course we all know this is blowhard BS and by the end of the week everybody claiming they’ll never touch Coke again will be back to normal (assuming they don’t have a Minute Maid in their hand right now). They just want their non-righteous indignation noted.
I finally watched the “Offensive” ad and it seems to me they are promoting America.
When I tell people how to fix the world my solution always comes down to flooding them with:
and Mom’s apple pie.
What could be more American? Don’t bag on my Mom either.
It seems to me, in my travels around the globe, the world very much wants to be like us.
In fact, they come here by the droves looking for the American Dream.
“Flame suit on”
Pepsi just tastes terrible. I refuse to purchase it. The reason Coke is bashed is because they are the largest soda company and get trashed all the time....liberals do it to Walmart all the time. When you are number 1, jealousy is EVERYWHERE!
So, no problem with that whole shoving homosexuality down our throats?
Was thinking about buying a Sodastream to support Israel of course..but are the drinks that you can make with it any good..never even tasted it before so have no idea how it even tastes
Coke had to get on the good side of the congresscritters. One wouldn’t want a Bloomdork banning all Cokes, would one?
Maroons, all of ‘em.
The “Great Spirit of America” can be shared by all in whatever language they choose to sing it in. I’m just happy they are singing it.
Just like the spiritual hymn, “Amazing Grace” being sung in the Cherokee language. To my ears it will always remain beautiful.
Well, I suggest 'the American dream' wasn't built upon Balkanization. But it will die from it.
It was ok when a bunch of hippies wanted to “teach the world to sing...” or “buy the world a coke...”
Nothing more than a good company expanding markets....
But the souper bowl add making nice with all those foreign languages singing America the Beautiful...it was nothing more than coca cola folks calling for amnesty for ileagles.
Any day now.....
Coke has been making my behind hurt since the whole sappy, “teach the world to sing” drivel a million years ago. But we’ve been drinking about an 8 pack every week or so. I believe it might be time to cut them loose altogether. We’ve certainly survived just fine without Frito Lay. (switched to Utz)
I agree, wholeheartedly. The ad was clearly meant to celebrate America. They may not have done so in the way I would have chosen to do so -- if I were to design the ad, I probably would have had them sing in English, with whatever accents they have. But, just because I would have gone with a different approach, doesn't make the ad "offensive" or "anti-American."
Foreign languages or not, I just find it hard to call a commercial proudly featuring "America the Beautiful," and ending with a tagline of "America is Beautiful," anti-American.
And I hope all the folks declaiming the horrors of multiculturalism don’t eat ethnic food. I thought it was basically a redo of the old “buy the world a coke” add, lots of ethnic mixing in there too.
Haven’t bought Coke in many years... I don’t miss it or its commercials. I actually found that one last night rather repulsive... singing “America the Beautiful” doesn’t support the “melting pot” ideal, but rather multiculturalism.
The only coke products I buy are the mexican cokes from Costco. I stay away from any sodas that have HFCS in them. I’ve had a sodastream for over a year now and love it. If you buy the sodastream cola syrup made with cane sugar you will find it very close to the mexican cokes.
America the Beautiful doesnt support the melting pot ideal, but rather multiculturalism.
America the Beautiful in multiple languages doesnt support the melting pot ideal, but rather multiculturalism.
Taste is different for everyone. I don’t drink soda, but in my opinion Pepsi is WAY better than Coke.
Have had one of these for over a year and it’s great. A lot cheaper and saves me from having to lug all those two liter bottles from the store. And saves on fridge and cabinet space too.
I missed that one. When id it air?
