Rykker Nyberg – RE: Coke commercial

Posted: February 9, 2014 in Uncategorized

In class I made a comment about the woman who wrote “America the Beautiful” and the irony involved in the American Backlash towards expressing diversity. Linked here is a sample of the ridiculous anger directed towards the Coke ad, and then some clever satire from the Colbert Report.


Naturally this doesn’t reflect the entirety of the American populace. To say so would be in itself bigoted as it is a grand generalization of 300 million + people. Nevertheless, the social media and news media response is a bit sickening. Its quite strange how powerful the messages of advertisers and corporations can be, isn’t it?
