The Seattle Seahawks put on a dominant display last weekend at the Super Bowl, beating the Denver Broncos 43-8. But that wasn't really what got people talking.

Coca-Cola aired a commercial titled "It's Beautiful," with a simple premise: scenes from American life with "America the Beautiful" playing in the background. The twist? The patriotic tune was sung in different languages.

And apparently that did not sit well with some people on Twitter. #SpeakAmerican instantly started trending and people expressed their frustration over the tweets bashing the Coke commercial.

Take a look at our other big stories from the past week!

The "real-time facial recognition" software "can detect a face using the Google Glass camera, send it wirelessly to a server, compare it to millions of records, and in seconds return a match complete with a name, additional photos and social media profiles."

Kelly Ripa, No Makeup ABC

Kelly Ripa Goes Makeup Free: Kelly Ripa lost a Super Bowl bet with her cohost Michael Strahan and as the loser, she went makeup free during Live With Kelly and Michael on Thursday.

"Calm down, we'll all get through this together," the blond beauty joked to the audience while starting the show. "Don't adjust your dials. There's nothing wrong with your TV. One of us is wearing makeup today, and one of us isn't. Not even anti-shine. I labored under the delusion that I looked OK without makeup until I came out here and I went, 'Oh my God!'"

"You look great," Strahan said. "And really fresh."
