So many funny thoughts ran through my mind as I looked at these photos. Please, understand, that I mean absolutely NO disrespect to the photographers. Your photos are wonderful! Maybe it’s just MY mind, but I’m guessing most of you have an incredible sense of humor too.
#1: Ok, this guy looks like a young Bing Crosby, but I thought “who the heck thought this ad would sell product?” Why would this ad sell Cokes? Aussie cowboy hat, maybe, but why would this entice me to buy Coke? Perhaps I’ll hop like a kangaroo or something. I dunno. But, heck – it was 194-something and I wasn’t even born yet.
#2: This one just cracked me up. Funny photo title. (of course I WAS alive back before they made bottles that opened by hand.)
#3: Coca-Cola Coffin – Yes, that’s right! And, by reading the text below the photo it sounds like this one is FOR REAL! What a world we live in! Hey buddy – ever think that it might have been drinking too much Coke that killed ya?
#4: The Coke can with legs. The mosaic maker cut off the bottom of the legs and feet – so I hope you check out the original photo. When I first saw the picture, I thought that it was of some poor person that had a job walking around dressed as a Coke can. But, no, it’s actually a toy. Phew!
#5: Coca-Cola is the Answer. Now, look at the guy handing the woman the coke. Is he not wearing a white doctor’s coat? The only thing that would have made this ad better for me would be if he had a cigarette hanging out of his mouth.
#6: Coca-Cola curtains. I have one word for this one – why?
#7: hip-hop bailey coke – silly dog!
#8: The pope and coca cola – Yes, that’s right! One stop shopping! And this is located near St. Peter’s Basillica, too boot!
#9: Coca-cola-4 pc — This one made me go HUH??? What do cooking utensils have to do with Coke? I don’t get it, but evidently it’s a hot selling item. Hmmmm, maybe one of my kids would like this for Xmas.
#10: Coke massacre – Ok, I laughed AND I cried! (I’m a Diet Pepsi drinker)
#11: Coca Cola pinhole camera – Excuse me? Does this belong to Maxwell Smart?
#12: Open Sunset, Insert Coke Bottle – Ahhh, I do love my coke – “My sweet, darling coke. Let us go watch the setting sun together. I promise I’ll try to keep my lips to myself”
#13: remember way back when……yeah, I do! Why did we ever think this was so much fun? Certainly we didn’t have the numbers of toys that kids today have – but really!!! Oh well, it beats TP on the shoe.
#14: I’ve tried my best to let go of you…..I feel your pain (only with Diet Pepsi or Fresca)
#15: Coke Hat – It’s a beanie….it’s a crown…..hey, it’s not pretty!
#16: Coca Cola – Psssst…..your box is upside-down!. Maybe Engrish.com should make a T-shirt of this photo.
#17: Vintage Coca-Cola Sign – Rx Drugs and Coca Cola — Ahhh..those were the days!
#18: Coca-Cola Bear – Ok, this photo was of something nice – a Children’s Giving Parade. However, when I first saw the photo it looked like the Coke bear was marching on the Capitol building or a State House and I wondered, “what’s THAT protest about?”
#19: A true fan! — I’ve got to say that I didn’t think anyone ever really wore those in public!
#20: Broken Coca-Cola Bottle with top – Don’t know your own strength, huh? Cracked me up.The caption says: “I applied an Orton effect in the Gimp.” Now what ever does THAT mean?
#21: Coca-Cola Cool Recipies Coke Cookbook — Be Afraid! Be VERY Afraid!
#22: Sprite surrounded by Coca-Cola – Who ever does your decorating? Sweet dreams!
#23: The “Coca Cola Slim CAN” telephone — Ok. I’ve got my Coca Cola Slim Can telephone on my bedside table. I’m hanging out, chilling in my room, watching a movie and drinking a Coke. All of a sudden, the phone rings….it’s an intense moment of the movie and I’m only half paying attention as I reach over to pick up the p hone and…. Oh #*$(# I grabbed the soda can NOT the phone! ARGH!!!! (Yes, this all flashed in my mind in a moment as I looked at this photo.)
#24: Coca Cola Purse – The Ultimate Re-Use Green Award goes to this girl! Clearly it’s a well used bag (note the dings and dents).
#25: The dancing Coca-Cola! — too cool for words
#26: Out to Lunch – Yes, the dogs ARE lucky – they’re under the darn umbrella out of the sun!
#27: Coke Bottle with a hat – I really have no words – it just makes me laugh every time I look at it.
#28: Coca Cola – Feels like a close encounter of the coke kind to me!
#29: Coca Cola Wagon – For selling Coke to the frontier back in the day…..
#30: Giant Coca-Cola bottle — Uh, someone thought this was a good idea? It’s ugly and looks like a giant sand sculpture (which would be cool).
#31: Coca-Cola Love – Coca Cola — Love — England — HEY, why them? And what’s this sign REALLY about? Does Coke love England? Or does England love Coke? Maybe they love each other?
#32: The Coke decorator strikes again!!!
#33: Coca-cola Viennese – The driver gets a little coke bottle painted on the car with every delivery….Hmmmm….I don’t know if I’d consider it a perk to have this as a company car, though.
#34: Just in case one table and 2 coke chairs aren’t enough……the family size set.
#35: Coca-Cola Santa Ornament – Very cute. But, notice the little dog. How he sits and earnestly looks up at that bottle of coke. Can’t you just imagine that stubby little tail wagging?
#36: Kids are smiling at Coke younger and younger these days. Hey, maybe it’s the same guy holding the cup of Coke who trained the dog in # 34?
Thank you for all the smiles, chuckes, laughs and befuddled “what the hecks?” I had looking at these photos. It’s been a fun way to pass an evening while awaiting the time for me to pick my 3 kids up at the airport (flight delayed).
