Share a Coke® and a…. snarky, immature giggle. But come on- this new marketing idea could turn out to be the most fun name game EVER! Oh, advertising! You coy little harlot, you!
Don’t get me wrong- I truly love Coca Cola products. Right now I’m really into CokeZero®– so much so that I gotta be careful with it. I swore off soda for years because I used to drink so much Diet Coke® that I had to get off of it cold turkey when I quit cigarettes. Kept a 20 oz bottle in my purse at all times. I was hooked. Not kidding- I would not smoke a cigarette without a Diet Coke, and I would not have a Diet Coke without a cigarette. I was like the people who’d only light up when they drank booze. But since I didn’t drink booze, I chose to light up only when I had a Diet Coke. And I ALWAYS had a diet coke. And now, after a lonnnnnng hiatus from the evil DC, I have been dallying in CokeZero. Seems harmless enough, right? I mean…. it’s not like I’m having a Diet Coke. But I find myself craving these “Zeros” more and more.
Coke Zero could have me flowing down that slippery-soda-slope to my ultimate, carbonated doom.
p.s. I just had an awful thought. If I buy a Coke Zero with my name on it (Mary), and I drink it all up with great satisfaction, does that make me a narcissist?
