How dare Jesus drink Coke!

April 12, 2007

From Eye Witness News:

The company’s theme song used to be “I’d like to buy the world a Coke,” but apparently the offer doesn’t apply to Jesus.

Coca-Cola Co. is suing producers of an Italian film titled “7 Km da Gerusalemme” (Seven Kilometers From Jerusalem), that shows Jesus swigging Coke from a can in the desert. Coke said the scene would probably give the soda a bad image. A spokeswoman said, “We are not interested in this kind of product placement.”

So, they don’t want Jesus drinking Coke, cause he gives the product a bad name, but they want this guy promoting their product:

If you’re not sure who that is… that’s the main character of the video game, Grand Theft Auto. GTA is known as one of the most violent games of all time. The point of the game is to drive around a city stealing cars, shooting cops, stomping down women and getting bonus points for running over pedestrians. A cop-killing, women beating criminal for your spokesperson? Hell yes! Freakin’ Jesus drinks a Coke? Lawsuit!

Coke, you are funny.

  1. WOW….that’s just nonsense. I think they were trying to say they didn’t want to get into the religious/political message is was sending out. But all the same….its still NUTS!


  2. Yeah, I’m sure that’s what it is. But still, it’s pretty ridiculous.


  3. I have to agree with the both of you, it’s very ridiculous. That’s why I drink Pepsi.


  4. High five to another Pepsi drinker!
    Coke does not even compare =)


  5. well i drink coke, but this is just weird. maybe this gta guy and jesus could drink one together, it would be sort of redeeming.


  6. You are an idiot.
