Klingon, Dothraki cut from controversial Coke Super Bowl ad (funny video)

By now you’ve probably heard about the controversy surrounding Coca-Cola’s pro-diversity Super Bowl 2014 ad.

In the commercial, Coke has a variety of Americans sing “America the Beautiful” in a number of languages. And the conservatives flipped out, claiming the ad was meant to “divide” the nation by somehow promoting Democratic immigration reform proposals.  Or something.

Well, the good folks over at Garlic Jackson Comedy were able to turn up some outtakes of other languages Coke considered adding to the commercial, including Klingon, sign, and Dothraki.


The video is quite a hoot.
