Coke Zero Commercial - Are the Lawyers the Real Thing?
We're sitting here watching the Butler-Florida game (go Bulldogs!) and just saw the Coke Zero commercial. It turns out that those "actual lawyers" really are in-house Coca-Cola lawyers being set up with hidden cameras. I love this exchange:
Marketing 1: "Do we have a case? I'd like to sue Coke
Zero for taste infringement."
Lawyer: "For what?"
Marketing 2: "We want to sue them back to the Stone Age to send a message that they can't mess with the flagship brand."
Lawyer: "It's the same company. It's like suing yourself."
Marketing 1: "Yeah, but they're on a different part of the floor."

I was torn between Butler/David and Goliath/SEC loyalty.
