The commercial is nice. I also could hear Spanish. However I think you've made mistake regarding Russian: there's no Russian there (and also no Ukrainian, Polish, Serbian - basically I didn't hear any Slavic language).

One of languages besides English and Spanish may be Hebrew. I have no idea regarding others.

Did you not get the English? ;)

Actually, I'm not getting the Russian. Or anything other than the Spanish, which is after the first line in English, right?

Maybe people can transcribe the translated lines?

O beautiful for spacious skies,

(For amber waves of grain,)

(For purple mountains' majesty)

(Above the fruited plain!)

America! America!

God shed His grace on thee,

(And crown thy good with brotherhood)

(From sea to shining sea!)

(And crown thy good with brotherhood)

From sea to shining sea!

Oh, here's the answer. No wonder I didn't recognize the languages...

In addition to English, the song is presented in Spanish, Tagalog, Hebrew, Hindi, Senegalese-French and Keres, a Puebloan dialect spoken in New Mexico. http://www.ajc.com/news/business/coca-cola-catches-heat-hurrahs-for-america-ad/ndBn4/

I actually did think there was French in it after the first time I heard it, but I listened again and decided it couldn't be!
