Default Seasonal Change -- It just ain't natural

Here in So. Calif. Mother Nature doesn't provide us with much in terms of color change, falling leaves, etc. So, we have to depend on our corporate-driven commercialism to tell us when the seasons change. Thanks to the folks at Coca-Cola we know that the Holiday season is upon us. Sad, ain't it?

Well at least after you drink the pop you can hang the bottle off of your palm tree.

Nice one, Walter. Did you hear about Costco dropping Coke products because they can't come to terms on cost and pricing. Costco really holds their ground when it comes to product cost.

For those not familiar with Costco, it is a membership warehouse that sells everything in quantities that take a year to use but the prices are pretty good. Similar to Sams club and several others.

Hmmm. I'll bet Costco wins this one and that Coca-Cola captulates. BTW, those round bottles are somewhat hard to grasp for those with smaller hands. Give me those Marilyn Monroe shaped bottles anytime. :-)

walter,
Superbly done! I really thought on first blush that it was a christmas ornament.
Imagine they're pushing their Christmas wares before Thanksgiving is here.

Aloha

isn't our current iteration of santa clause a product of coca-cola marketing?

Money hungry so the poor stay hungry imagine that one when you see Christmas coming out in Aug and September... Sure some of them are even poor that work in the stores but yet Corps are so uping it for their own wants of a life style they forget about every one else seems ya have to be a Game player now days to make it and hold the Ball shapes to throw the weight of one.

I went back to the store thinking I would buy a few more of these special edition Coca-Cola bottles, but they were all gone. A Coke rep said they only had a single shipment per store and once gone they were gone for good. I purchased 3 originally, so maybe they'll be worth something in 50 years.

Ive gotta agree with Hards80 on this. You continuously go off the topic of the picture and rave on about aches and pains or some political agenda. You continually baffle me as to your state of mind. I dont like saying this, but Ive asked you about this in a private message and got no satisfactory explanation for your odd wordings that are posted.
