    Modern American culture.

    Dude, you really gotta open your eyes. There is a lot more to this country than a few million WASPs.

If you tell someone "look out" because you dropped a hammer off of a high place, and the person couldn't understand you, that person would be hurt, and there are even much worse case scenarios too.
    It's no biggie, really. Canada has two official languages, Belgium has three, Switzerland has four. It doesn't get in the way- well, not seriously.

    But I thought the commercial was very nice. I enjoyed the visuals, good music and the message was delivered in very good taste.

    It reminds us that our bloodlines are from many different foreign shores, native Americans notwithstanding.

    In fact, anyone who objects to the message, that is not a native American, is a freakin' idiot and I really don't care what idiots think.

    America the beautiful. Indeed. I love America! From sea to shining sea.
    What a cornball post!

    I've heard otherwise from people who work on construction job sites.

    Yes but luckily for them they don't have an aversion towards education like so many Americans do.

    No, countries don't change their native language or get rid of their native language to appease illegal immigrants and their supporters.

    If you are moving to a country, it is YOUR responsibility to learn the native language so that you can communicate. Otherwise, you are an idiot to move to a country and be ignorant of the native language.

    Seriously? Damn.

    Well, it's their money. $4 million to say whatever they wanted to say. I say good on them. If you don't like the commercial, or if it bores you, go get a snack. Not everybody is going to like every single commercial. I hated the damn Budweiser frogs, and can probably guarantee you that I would not have found somebody shooting rainbows out of his butt very funny. Not a fan of Jim Carrey type humor.

    It was lovely! I enjoyed it very much.
