Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Coca-Cola Polar Bears Are Terrible At Drinking Coke

Coca-Cola has purchased a full 60-second block for its Super Bowl commercial, which, as in previous years, features polar bears attempting to drink Coke and being very bad at it. Here's video of the spot:

I'm sorry. Yes, I know these polar bears are terribly cute and all that, but I think this commercial begs to be deconstructed. Why are the majority of the bears hanging out on the plot of snow in the middle of the ice, even the cave clearly has a television and ample seating area? Is this one of those lame Super Bowl parties in which almost no one is actually watching the Super Bowl? And there are bears? God, I hate those parties. I always get so bored and mauled.
