Coca-Cola sparks a Super Bowl controversy with its unpatriotic ad featuring immigrants singing "America the Beautiful" while drinking Coca-Cola. (5:17)

WELCOME BACK!

EVEN LONG AFTER THE SEATTLE SEAHAWKS CELEBRATED SUNDAY'S

BRING THE BRONCOS TO WORK DAY, ONE SUPER BOWL CONTROVERSY RAGES

ON.

>> COCA-COLA, THEY'RE GETTING A LOT OF CRITICISM.

>> COKE COMMERCIAL ALSO SPARKED CONTROVERSY.

>> POSSIBLY THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL SUPER BOWL AD.

THERE WAS A BOYCOTT COKE HASH TAG TRENDING LAST NIGHT ON

TWITTER.

>> ON THE INTERNET, THERE'S A LOT OF BACKLASH.

>> WHAT HAPPENED? DID JANET JACKSON OPEN A COKE

CAN WITH HER TEET? IF SHE COULD, I WOULD LIKE TO

SEE THAT. WHAT TOXIC SMUT DID COCA-COLA

AIR TO SO BUNCH AMERICA'S UNDERGARMENTS?

♪ FOR SPACIOUS SKIES ♪

♪♪♪

♪THAT UPSET PEOPLE?

WERE THEY BOTHERED BY THE DANGEROUS LEVELS OF SHMALTZ?

I WILL GRANT YOU IF THERE WERE APRECIOUS MOMENTS FIGURINE WHERE

AN ORPHAN HANDED A PUPPY TO A KINDLY SOLDIER TITLED I WUV

AMERICA, IT WOULD BE LESS SAPPY THAN THAT AD.

BUT I'M GUESSING THAT WASN'T THEISSUE.

>> THE AD FEATURED PEOPLE FROM MANY ETHNICITIES, ONE TWEETED

I'LL NEVER BUY COKE AGAIN.

>> COCA-COLA LOST ITS MIND, OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM IN OTHER

LANGUAGES, THAT IS UN-AMERICAN AS POSSIBLE.

>> YOU KNOW, THE ONLY THING MOREDELICIOUS THAN A TALL COOL GLASSOF

COCA-COLA IS THE IRONY THAT THE SELF APPOINTED PATRIOTIC

AMERICAN WATCH DOGS SEEM UNAWARETHAT OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM IS IN

FACT NOT AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL. REALLY, PEOPLE?

THIS IS THE SUPER BOWL AD YOU'REGOING TO GET UPSET ABOUT WHEN

YOU HAD SOME SORT OF GREEK YOGURT SEX GAME GOING ON OR A

SPOT CELEBRATING THE UNNATURAL LOVE BETWEEN A DOG AND A HORSE?

THERE WAS AN AD WHERE A MAN'S HEAD WAS CRACKED OPEN.

OH, MY GOD! OH, MY GOD!

IT REVEALED HIS SMALLER OTHER GREEN HEAD APPARENTLY TO THE

PURPOSE OF SELLING SOME KIND OF NUT.

I CAN'T RECALL THE SPECIFIC TYPEOF NUT.

I RECALL ENJOYING THE AD THINKING IT WAS VERY AMUSING.

I CAN'T RECALL THE TYPE OF NUTHE WAS SELLING.

OF COURSE, THE NOW INFAMOUS HALFTIME AD FOR TURBOTAX.

WHAT IS THAT? WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH

TAX RETURNS? I DON'T THINK EITHER OF THOSE

PEOPLE ARE EVEN ACCOUNTANTS. SO CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN

WHAT EXACTLY IS THE PROBLEM WITHA GROUP OF ATTRACTIVE IMMIGRANTS

SINGING A BELOVED AMERICAN SONG IN THEIR NATIVE LANGUAGES?

>> I THINK BIGGEST ISSUE HERE IS, THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE

UNFORTUNATELY ARE COMING TO AMERICA NOW, NOT ASSIMILATING.

>> ASSIMILATING? THEY'RE SINGING AMERICA THE

BEAUTIFUL WHILE DRINKING COCA-COLA.

HOW MUCH MORE AMERICAN ASSIMILATION CAN THEY HAVE?

MAYBE IF THEY WERE OPEN CARRYINGA GUN SHAPED LIKE JESUS WHILE

LOSING A BALD EAGLE STRAPPED ON [BLEEP] APPLE PIE.

BUT FOR GOD'S SAKE, WHAT ELSE? YOU KNOW, ALL THESE SELF

APPOINTED PATRIOTS WHO ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT THE DIFFERENT

NATIONALITIES IN THAT AD HAD ANCESTORS WHO CAMEFROM DIFFERENTNATIONS THEMSELVES,

EUROPE MOSTLY, MOST EARLY EUROPEAN IMMIGRANTS CLUNG TO

NATIVE TONGUES LONGER THAN WASCOMFORTABLE FOR THE XENOPHOBESOF

THEIR TIME. THIS WILL REFRESH YOUR MEMORY

♪-OH BEAUTIFUL FOR SPACIOUSSKIES ♪ FOREIGN LANGUAGE

♪AMERICA

♪ AMERICA ♪ AND CROWN THY GOOD

♪ WITH BROTHERHOOD ♪

♪WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
