Coca-Cola 'America the Beautiful' Super Bowl Ad Celebrates Diversity, Twitter Explodes (VIDEO)

Coca-Cola generally draws on cuddly polar bears and other heartwarming imagery for its Super Bowl commercials and this year was no exception -- or was it?

Coke's stirring "It's Beautiful" spot featured Americans of all different backgrounds singing "America the Beautiful" in a variety of languages. Whether singing in English, Hindi, Arabic, or Tagalog, the ad's singers proved that America's diversity is one of its most important assets.

Of course, this resulted in a backlash of its own, as people across the Internet rallied to the commercial's defense.
