    I about crapped an apple. What is coke thinking? My suspicion is that they are beta testing this new kind of coke in Argentica for later unveiling during a Superbowl Commercial.

    Mark my words, this could be the end of civilization as we know it.

    So, if you share your soft drink with another person, you take on some physical characteristic of that person.

    Apparently cocaine has been re-introduced into the secret formula…

    Well I just shared a Coke with my dog and a rabbit, and BAM nothing. Disappointing.

    Maybe the secret is in an Argentine bottling plant.

    Apparently Bill likes to give me nightmares. Thanks.

    Still not as freaky as the Tango adverts they used to screen here in the 90s.

    Holy crap! That guy just turned into Xavier the Renegade Angel: http://www.adultswim.com/video/?episodeID=8a25c39215fa78a40115fc195eaf00ed

    So I guess this commercial is unveiling their return to the Coca-Cola formula from the early 1900’s that actually included cocaine?

    Does Diet Cola have the same effect? Because I’d like to do all my mutating without the extra carbs. Plus, I love the smooth metallic finish.

    If I share my Coke with a Hilton sister, do I get a an enormous sum of cash? Or just the syphilis? Or both? Because I could really do without the latter. I’ll have to think about it.

    See, that’s why I prefer Pepsi. The chances of mutation are greatly decreased. Besides, Pepsi apparently sponsors an Ancient Rome-esque arena where pop divas are forced to battle each other for the amusment of Emperor Enrique Iglesias, so at least I know my money is going to a good cause… http://youtube.com/watch?v=CfxwXneCtEM

    I thought it was beautiful, personally. A vision of unity and peace.

    (…If you look past the hideousness, that is.)

    Remember, every time you share a Coke, your sharing it with every other mutant it’s been shared with.

    Or something.

    Aaaaaagh! Acid trip commercials! What are they smoking down there?! Ewwww. That “Gladiator” ripoff Pepsi thing is annoying at best, btw. What an expensive bit of nonsense. Gah…just when I wonder why I don’t watch TV…

    Even with two straws, there’s still a trace hideous mutant-bird backwash sliding down that straw and into that bottle. Yummy!

    I loved that commercial! You should be able to appreciate since you used to play a horrible bird-robot hybrid.

    So, wait, the girl at the end managed to share a Coke with a fly?

  • 17 Strom Thetty & The Tartmakers on Jan 3, 2008 at 12:57 pm

    Yup. Sounds good. If I ever get a hankering to transmogrify into a hell beast from a Bosch painting, I’ll be sure and crack open a Coke. H.R. Giger would poop his pants watching this.
