5 Super Bowl Ads You Should Be More Outraged About!

PhilHaney by PhilHaney on Feb. 03, 2014
There was a huge controversy during the Super Bowl this year and it wasn’t even because Flea exposed both of his man nipples during the halftime show.  Coca-Cola’s 2014 Super Bowl commercial, was to the untrained eye a pretty tame, generic Coke ad featuring varying shots of multiethnic people “having fun” and “living life to its fullest” all while the patriotic song America The Beautiful was sung in several different foreign languages. And that seems to have gotten everyone’s nachos bubbling….

Did this piss you off? I don’t get it. Maybe folks were upset because the people in the ad were having so much fun while they were sitting on their collective asses stuffing themselves with cheese while watching a boring game? The response on social media however was more ‘Merica The Beautiful as Tweets poured in outraged that the song would be sung in anything but English.

 

 

Some people even confused the song with the national anthem which is the Star Spangled Banner, not America The Beautiful:

It seems like stupid outrage to me, this is what everyone got upset about? (Are YOU upset about it? If so please explain it to the rest of us!) I actually found some of the other Super Bowl 2014 commercials a lot more outrageous! Here are five that you should be more outraged about!

M&M Man Murder… Possible Mass Genocide

Was anyone else totally creeped out by the fact that a “family” brand like M&M’s endorsed kidnapping, murder and ethnic cleansing? Their Super Bowl spot starts out with a presumed mafia don in the middle of an Eyes Wide Shut type party as his henchmen beckon him to come outside for a “special delivery.” Once at the car they reveal they have kidnapped an adorable M&M man and have him held hostage in the trunk. He then describes how he is going to chop him up and sprinkle him over his ice cream.. so cute right because after all he’s just an M&M man! This living, breathing, talking creature who has a soul, thoughts and feelings of his own is just an M&M, he’s not even human. Let’s chop him up and eat him! That line of thinking sounds familiar doesn’t it?! He has goals, dreams, a family, a little peanut M&M on the way.. but no we don’t consider his kind worthy, so feel free to bag them all up and chop them into bits! I noticed that the M&M was yellow.. is it just the yellow and brown M&M’s that we can treat this way? We don’t see too many white M&M’s do we? Also the mafia guy spoke in a foreign language! They could have at least shown some English speaking American gangsters!? Unpatriotic!

Chevy Cattle Orgy and Implied Bestiality

Like most real Americans I am constantly concerned with how I am going to transport my cattle via pickup truck. That’s why I was excited to see how awesome Chevy trucks can move cattle in this commercial as a rancher loads a happy looking bull for road trip. However this feeling turned to outrage once the song “You Sexy Thing” kicked in and I was terrified of the implied bestiality between rancher and his “sexy thing.”  

Luckily he was only driving the bull to a giant wholesome… cow orgy! No doubt the bull was there to partake in rampant, underage, unprotected sex with a variety of mates. Disgusting, you should all be outraged at the message this is sending our young people!   

Volkswagen German Engineer Angels and Small Dick Jokes

A lot of people watch the Super Bowl like it’s a religious experience but Volkswagen took it to an outrageous level in their commercial by implying that the people who make Volkswagens are angels. A father driving with his daughter teaches her that “Every time a Volkswagen hits one hundred thousand miles a German engineers gets his wings.” We then see a bunch of lab coat wearing German guys in a car factory sprouting wings.. are they saying that German engineers are the master angels? To top off this offense they use angels for a small penis joke; two of God’s heavenly creatures at urinals; one with a bigger set of wings than the other, wink, wink. And why were their no female engineer- angels? Is it because only people who have a penis can get wings? Outrageous! To top it off there is a reference to a rainbow coming out of the engineers butt when the Volkswagen hits two hundred thousand miles!  No female angles and rainbow butts… Hmm. What could they be saying there? Outrage!

Scarlett Johansson Soda Stream Commercial is Unbanned! WTF!

After all the hype surrounding the “banned” Scarlet Johansson commercial, I almost fell out of my chair as I saw Johansson hawking Soda Stream during the Super Bowl. I thought this commercial was BANNED. How am I supposed to get excited about making my own carbonated beverages at home if the they promote falsehoods about banning commercials on the Super Bowl!  I’m not sure what’s more outrageous: the fact that Soda Stream caved to pressure and censored the commercial for the Super Bowl airing so it did not mention Coke and Pepsi, or the fact that the spot was so lame to begin with.

Kia Matrix Commercial

I am outraged with this commercial because Kia took a huge post half time dump right on my childhood. You know the dump; you’ve been drinking beer and eating chili bean nacho dip for the past four hours, and boom, it’s go time. Morpheus from the Matrix used to be a freedom fighter, offering a blue or red pill to The One in a decision that will liberate humanity. Now we discover that Morpheus is less about kicking ass and more about selling luxury cars. This ad felt like someone accidentally made a commercial written as an example of what not to do in 1999. If these are the types of lame commercials that are going to air during the Super Bowl, I’d rather stay inside the Matrix.

Which Super Bowl commercials did you find the most outrageous and/ or offensive?

With all of the BS going on in the news about kids in California schools being forced to take off shirts with the american flag on it, so as not to offend the Latino community, which is ridiculous because they came here to be part of america! Also, a story just a week or two ago where kids tried to have an american patriot Monday and were told they couldn't because they would offend other ethnicities. I think everyone is channeling their anger about those issues through this commercial involving a song about america originally wrote in English. It may be passive aggressive behavior, but not totally misguided IMO, if this commercial came out 8 years ago I would love it, because that is what america is all about. "Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free!" I think the commercial is intended to go along with the fit one world government psychological agenda, but it's still a good point and a good article.

Hey idiots of course the USA is a melting pot...that term means many cultures assimilating into ONE.  Not everybody immigrate here ILLEGALLY and do your own thing.

What about the scientology commercial for fuck sakes people it was made by two idiots that bet one another that it couldnt be done

Why anybody is actually making anything about these commercials is beyond me. Shows pettyness, and that the advertisers actually did their job.....because you all have the brands on your minds and mouth. Example of America wasting time on useless issues and things....no wonder our country is in trouble.

You know which commercial offended me? None of them! That's the problem with America. We look for things to be offended by and then we go on a rampage until that "offensive" thing is shut out or banned. We are no longer the most free nation in the world because we are so easily offended and we cater to the minorities who aren't mature enough to control their own feelings and opinions

As an outsider, I gotta say this... 1. You have the right to your opinion... As do I... 2. You who think English is "American" obviously need a social life... By the way, let me introduce you to your first cousin. Maybe you should get married and have some kids. 3. If praising "America, the beautiful" is wrong in any language Except English is wrong, you guys are so f*cked up, it scares the shit outta me because it is only an indicator of the things to come...

Offensive only because you secretly want to be offended your "ego" is craving it... We are all from the same energy source ,we are all one. If anything be offended that soda and cigarettes are legal .

And that's why I don't watch the Superbowl. If the ad of America The Beautiful is offensive, what isn't? People are just waiting to be offended at anything.

I do not get the outrage on the coke commercial. This country was founded by immigrants. They all came here speaking different languages. This includes almost all of us (unless you are a Native American; they sure did not speak english either).The only people that spoke english were from England. A lot of people in this country are multilingual and speak another Language while home with family and friends. I look at this as a great thing and an honor that they would sing it in another language! Thus Honoring their own blood line and this country. You do not have to be Born here to love this country or for that matter speak english. We should always celebrate the diversity in this country it is what makes us strong. If this offends you sorry but I think you are being small minded.

Scarlett Johansson's original ad was banned. They made her remove the line "sorry Coke and Pepsi." That was the only thing they banned it for.

America IS IMMIGRANTS. We are all different races. We all came here. From ALL different places. The fact that you would even post this is fucking stupid and proves you are uneducated. I'm glad they did this multilingual.

Outraged? Seriously? It's the melting pot. We've got damn near every language on the planet spoken in this country. It's a great sentiment. People are always fucking looking for something to get outraged over now adays.

Yes it did. I did not like that coke has the audacity to put other people in other nations singing a song about the great country of America. Who would sing this over their own?

Sheik Gee

Ok! So Americans who go to other countries should first need to speak that country's national language before they can enter, if that's the case.

America is a land of immigrants. No one is really originally from here, even the white people.

I didn't know that "America the Beautiful" was our national anthem.... I thought it was the "Star Spangled Banner"? Also, I thought we spoke English and not "American". Teatards teach me something new every day...

I though each language was beautiful. I'm not racist or anything i support people wanting to live were they want but I am against illegal immigrants. If you want to move do it the right way and get your green cards. No matter what race you are.

I am mostly ignoring the content of your idiotic post, rather making a comment. The name Luecke, seems highly suspect if you ask me. You probably come from a long line of suspect north germans. So I would watch what you say about "our country." America is a country of immigrants. Live with it buddy.

If they're a melting pot they'd assimilate to the USA's culture which is in fact English.
