Coke's Super Bowl "live ad" polar bears found dead.

(click, via)
Hours before they were supposed to star in "real-time" ads during the Super Bowl XLV NBC broadcast, the two "fan-bears" were found floating dead near their "snowfa" by Canadian helicopters. The cause of death has been determined to be global warming.
Asked for a statement, CEO Muhtar Kent said, "This was a tragic and untimely loss for the Coca-Cola company, America, and the world." Kent had no comment when asked to defend the ridiculousness of a company that significantly contributes to global warming being represented by polar bears.
Lots more Greenpeace ads here.

Grenpeace better call their lawyers. There could be considerable blowback from Greenpeace' lame stunt

No, what CEO Muhtar Kent said was this, "This was a tragic and UNTOWARD loss for the Coca-Cola company, America, and the world.". I bet you couldn't think of that fancy word, Copycrank!

What's lame about this?

The ad by itself is heartbreaking. If it was released in anticipation of Coca-Cola's ad, it's heartbreaking AND clever.

Coca-Cola should be embarrassed by the ads that did air during the game. Boring, lame, and a big waste of money.

Fortunately, it's still cold enough that it'll be a while before they all stink.

mogaImagine! Coke is donating $2 million over 5 years to assist the bears!! That's, why, $400K per annum! That's perhaps 50 TV spots!

And it's not like they had to spend extra on the new can painting. After all, they have to paint the fuckers anyway!

What innovation! What caring! What ass juice!

And those stupid Inuit who claim that there are more of the white fuckers than ever can't fucking count! Stupid natives .... Coke knows best.
