Why eat half a grapefruit when you can fill up on a lively, crisp tasting Coke!
For that matter, why eat or drink anything else? Coke, like cigarettes in the 1950’s and 60’s, was practically nutrition in a bottle.
This waist trimming, natural beverage even comes in a bottle with a svelte, feminine figure that makes the soda-drinker ponder the decades-old conundrum: “What came first? The Coca-cola bottle, or the 60’s ideal female body?” These bottles have the figure that makes Sir Mix-a-lot proud, “little in the middle but she got much back”. I can’t say for sure, but I’ll bet it inspired him, so you can probably thank Coke for watching your mom twerk at every wedding reception for the rest of your Coke-drinking existence on this planet.
This commercial throws all the punches from “Pure fruit flavor!”, to “Not too sweet cola!”, and my personal favorite, “Hey now, don’t you get any thinner!”
She’s setting the stage for 30 to 40 years of super-sized-coke-binge-drinking that would make her proud and has clearly made the United States the lean, healthy country it is today. You can rarely find those classic “little in the middle” coke bottles in the United States, where the popularity of Coke has seen both American shelves and waists upgraded to “2 liter”.
Coke is shamelessly proud of their masterful marketing skills and you can read Coca Cola’s slogans from 1886’s “Drink Coca-Cola” to the 2009 catchy phrase of “Open Happiness”. My favorite is definitely from 1927, “Pure as sunshine”, because nothing makes me want a Coke more than the thought of chugging down a radioactive ball of fire. Yummy!
