UNDATED (WHDH) - The Super Bowl is known for its ads, and Coke is no stranger to the lineup.

However, the soda and soft drink company garnered some attention when their "America is Beautiful" ad showed the diverse individuals that make up the country, including a gay couple.

The family showed up a little more than half way through the ad and showed two fathers with their daughter roller-skating.

The hashtag #AmericaIsBeautiful went trending on Twitter shortly after the spot aired.

The commercial also featured the song "America the Beautiful" sung in multiple languages.
