I'll link an atricle that has a large collection of negative comments, which include a slew of remarks calling certain languages "terrorist
languages", people simply aggravated that the song isn't sung in English, and people upset that there is any race other than white being displayed at
all. Some of the language is rather vulgar; fair warning:
America a place full of different races creeds and languages, It was founded to be a place for all but many have forgotten this and have turned into
the people their forefathers fought against.
I see no problem with the ad at all and I also am sickened by the small minded idiots who make such uneducated comments.
Shame on them.
The answer? better education of the young and hope they don't carry on their parents views.
The only thing I don't like is the implication that "Hey we love your country so much we came here, but ... yeah, not that much. We demand that you
do everything in our language ..."
It's great that immigrants come here, but if we cannot put ourselves into one dominant overall culture and speak one dominant language, then we are
further divided and weakened as a people.
I'm not sure how that applies to a corporation fronting an advertisement that includes multiple languages. It's not exactly an implication of the
destruction of America. And really, saying "they come to our country"... whose country? America is for everyone, not just the English-speaking white
folk who were, by mere chance, born in America.
Did none of you learn the story of the Tower of Babel?
Fiction is not an adequate citing as evidence of anything.
I didn't like the commercial, but it's more because the internet and society have fueled a touch of the ADD in me; any commercial longer than 30
seconds feels like a Half-hour infomercial without all the hilarious black and white film hapless idiots spilling a glass of wine onto 23 square feet
of carpet or trying to slice bread with door stops.
Without something of an amusing premise, minute long commercials are torture.

My brother and I just watched the ads on Hulu, and we saw that one broke out laughing because and Ill quote him.
"how long before the retard outrage?"
And sure enough, America is a melting pot, anyone upset by this should remember this,
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
And understand one thing, and keep this in mind, Maserati is an Italian company bringing a product to the american market, AND LISTEN TO THE WORDS OF
THE COMERCIAL, From the perspective of an Italian Company telling it to an american audience.

what about music? can't we appreciate other types of music and respect it for being music?
"America the Beautiful" was written in English. If listen to banda, norteno or tejano, I am not expecting them to be translated into English for me
because they are not primarily English musical styles, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy it all the same. The same with Wagner or an Italian
opera. Do you expect them to be translated into English for you?
