Momentum’s Coca-Cola Parody Taken Down After an Hour

Soon after spotting this really decent parody ad from Momentum – riffing on Coca-Cola’s famous ‘Holiday’s are Coming’ Truck advert – Guido was informed by a lawyer that he didn’t think the ad would be allowed by Coke’s lawyers much longer. What else would you expect from the brand that is the greatest symbol of capitalism in the world?…

Before Guido even managed to publish, the ad was already taken down by lawyers. You’re either in front of Coca-Cola’s lawyers or behind…

Coca-Cola have now said:

“We have been made aware of a social post from Momentum which uses footage from the Coca-Cola Christmas advert. The film is in no way endorsed by The Coca-Cola Company…

Whether they end up suing Momentum, we will have to wait and pep-see…

Vazilicious: Keith’s Sweet Hypocrisy

DSC08280-1024x574

Portulent Labour MP Keith Vaz is very upset about a Coca-Cola Christmas truck visiting Leicester, warning that in “each can of Coke there are seven teaspoons of sugar”. Yet Vaz hasn’t always been able to hide his sweet tooth, even opening a sweet shop, Sweetalicious, in his constituency. Vaz had this to say at the opening:

“It will be a trip down memory lane with shelves filled with brightly coloured jars of sweets from all over the world.  The only problem will be wondering what to chose from the amazing range of sweets. I have a sweet tooth, so I will have to be very careful and not over indulge.”

Perhaps he’s on a health kick…
