    You do realize that the song played in the Coke ad was 'America the Beautiful', which is NOT our National Anthem.

    The video you linked is, however, our National Anthem.

    I see no problem with America the Beautiful in multiple languages. The song is about how beautiful America is, both as a land and an ideal, and harkens to that beauty as seen by those immigrating here, even mentioning pilgrims in the second verse.

    But I knew instantly when I saw the commercial that Coke would be lambasted for it, mostly out of ignorance.

    Oh yeah, and, uh, it is NOT the National Anthem.

    I guess the OPs head will explode when he finds out the lyrics were penned by a lesbian.

    Personally I don't do jingoism.

    I enjoyed the commercial thought it was lovely.

    America was built by many people of many races. Those that have a problem recognizing that can always feel free to go back to their original country.
    I think the young ladies have beautiful voices.

    Registering gun owners to prevent crime, is like registering Jews to prevent a HOLOCAUST.
