    Coca-Cola and Pepsi are like religions to some people.  I remember when they created “New Coke”  and people began to hord “old” Coke.  It most taste tests,  most Coke drinkers could not tell the difference between old and new Coke.

    • music

      Look at this commercial and wonder why Coke is like a religion to some people.

  • Bigal

    Any pre gmo coke is ok with me. This commercial was the pinnacle of advertising back in the day.

    This was always the Coca Cola advertisement that would creep me out.

    This is like Jim Jones cult if switched to Coke instead of Kool-Aid

  • Mamagriff50

    Very cultish!………………..creepy.

  • Phantom

    Man, I remember they played this commercial like a broken record.  I was surprised I still remember some of the lyrics (that was disturbing, LOL).  

    • Lakota

      That’s why they call the chorus the HOOK! it will getcha. I can’t tell you how many lame songs are stuck in my head from commercials…

  • Lakota

    ” I’d like to buy the world some coke, and Type 2 diabeteeeeees” 

  • MadHierophant

    The Coca-Cola Hive Mind loves you. Coca-Cola is your product. You love Coca-Cola. Choose loyalty to Coca-Cola over loyalty to others.

  • Ghostlore777

    Disturbing? Hardly. In fact, if you were around at the time, this commercial was ground breaking. Bear in mind these were the days of unspoken/untethered racism, sexism, and homophobia. Show me a commercial from that era that brings together so many ethnicities. Also remember that corporate greed back then was but a twinkle in the pigs eye when compared to todays modern businesses. Not saying modern day corporate Coca Cola hasn’t devolved like the rest of them, but it wasn’t all horrible back then.How about we just accept this for what it is? A commercial selling a product using a creative (and at the time, unique) form of marketing, wrapped in a catchy jingle.
    Now lets all take a deep breath and get back to more important topics…like ufo sightings and mcfuckingnuggets that allegedly look like a former president.
    P.S. Lakota: Blaming coke for causing Type 2 diabetes is like blaming the fork he/she shovels into his/her face hourly for making him/her fat. At some point, personal responsibility has to be held to account.

      All united for Coca-Cola? lol, I actually find it a lot more racist the suggestion that we ‘brown’ people rejoice in the absurdity of the white man’s consumerism and shallowness.

      • Monkey See Monkey Do

        I agree with your sentiment. But have you seen the mainstream Hip-hop and R&B videos lately?

        Consumerism and shallowness infects everybody.

        • Aungsan

          No, I don’t, I don’t even know what exactly qualifies as R&B, sorry, not all people are like that, but I do have some nice Inuit guttural music.

          • Monkey See Monkey Do

            Hmm.. Inuit music sounds interesting. I like African drumming. You should take a glance at the mainstream every now and then, its good for a scare.

          • Aungsan

            I might get infected ;) better safe than sorry.

      Actually, the media marketing/mass manipulation machine was in full effect in the 60s and 70s. Corporations have never simply created a commercial to simply sell a product. Those in PR and Marketing are taught to infect the mind of the consumer like a virus – After seeing that commercial everyone was singing it. So, whether they were big Coca-Cola drinkers was not the main issue. The fact that Coca-Cola was a lingering infection within their psyche was.

      Check out this really awesome doc on Google Video – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rDNt7hsBeA - you’ll get a great perspective on just how governments and corporations have been able to mass manipulate for over a century.

    Gah! Curse my lack of html knowledge.

  • theflyingduchman

    What does it say on the bottle at 0:42?

    • Mamagriff50

      I would like to know what it saya too. Subliminal message maybe?

    • Ghostlore777

      I believe the bottles being held have “Coca Cola” in different languages.

    “Coca Cola gave how much to who? Words subvert subdue, let ‘em sell it to you
    You, you, nothing’s better than aiming at nothing and hitting your mark.

  • davakins

    Coke makes Soylent Green taste better!

  • Ethyl

    I loved this commercial, even though I didn’t like coke at all; I loved Pepsi!   But back in the day, when they were made with real sugar (instead of HFCS) and were in glass bottles, the taste was totally different.   I don’t drink the new ones now they are GROSS!  Oh and by the by!   Back then, cokes were still a treat to have once in a while!   Not for every meal like they are nowadays.   And don’t even get me started on all the horrid crap they put in the diet ones that people actually give to their CHILDREN!  

  • Simiantongue

    We’re supposed to internalize Coca Cola’s worldwide struggle for corporate supremacy. How quaint, and disturbing, you’re right. Ever get that sticky pawn like feeling?

    Back in the early 60’s when I was in high school, I went over a friend’s house one night to work on our Biology term papers.  He drank 5-6 Pepsi’s during the course of the evening.  There were 4 kids in the family.  There were about 6 cases stacked one on top of the other in their pantry.  His mother said that she bought eight to nine 24-bottle cases of Pepsi a week.  Just to let you know that this kind of over-consumption of cola has been going on for quite some time.  I wonder if any of them are still alive.

    I’m with the ones that say this site is not what I’m into.    Hollowinfo is what you should call it.

    It’s a disturbing commercial….Why?

    TJ Lane should kill himself, Why?

    Nothing, just belligerent statements with nothing to back it up.   My buddy Al says youre’ a good guy, but this site does not reflect that.

    You lost me d00d

    One of the only worthwhile things I learned in my benighted Christian college, was that you can sing the lyrics of “Amazing Grace” to that tune. Try it – it’s fun. You can also sing both “Amazing Grace” and “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing” lyrics to the tune of “Gilligan’s Island.”

      i tried, it was hard at first, i kept wanting to switch melodies,

  • Vi0let_femme

    did they play this commercial in the 80s?  i wasn’t even born when it was made yet i knew exactly how the song went before i even played the video..

    i don’t ever remember seeing it on tv but i must have.
    how could i know something i never experienced?

  • Kamere

    Oh for heavens sake, that’s a nice commercial, like Coke causes diabetes.

  • Micah Dylan

    mexican coke still uses real sugar you can taste the difference HFCS tastes like the asshole of a dog … also if you dissolve a little actual coke in it you can experience the original original coca-cola

  • http://twitter.com/DJ_Tw1zzel KLYMAXX

    I think this commercial was made when Coca cola had actual cocaine in it.
