    I fail to see how either would be annoying to a reasonable person.

    I suspect you may have a broad view what an unreasonable person might be.

    I believe the intent was to create a commercial that Coke could place the one scene with the obviously homosexual family into. I believe the "America the Beautiful" and multicultural theme was only there to be a vehicle for that one image that I mentioned.

    If you go back over several months Coca-Cola Company has been getting beaten up by GLAAD online due to Coke's sponsorship of the Olympics in Russia. There had been lots of online talk about boycotting Coca-Cola over their sponsorship because of Putin's comments about homosexuality. With these calls to boycott Coke were appeals to switch to Pepsi.

    I believe this is what was behind this commercial.

    Not sure. I only know your response seems quite unreasonable to me.

    Or it may be a last minute decision, either way it did get Coke attention didn't it?

    So according to you, just being annoyed at something that in some manner grates on ones nerves are unreasonable?

    Something like that, yeah. Unreasonable.

    I don't think anything is last minute, and yes it did get attention. But so did 'New Coke'.
