- Friends Coke…..aaarghhhh
Really I’m not, I sort of know this girl, she’s cute, it’s loaded, think about a girl you fancy, what are you saying with the coke?
The name doesn’t matter just make sure you shake it really well before you give it to her, Coke goes all over her top, you help her off with her top – BOOM.Posted 4 years agoandytherocketeerSubscriber
Whoever came up with friends coke is a marketing genius.
Really? I thought it was crap. Certainly haven’t bought any more (or less) Coke because of it.
Saw those with names on in Ireland. Declared it a stupid idea (but not as stupid as using your name in $tarbuck$) and bought a Sprite or Fanta instead.
Only fridge rearranging I’d do is to try to make sure I’m gonna get a chilled bottle, and not one that’s just been put in the fridge.Posted 4 years agotomhowardSubscriber

Quite the opposite. As users of facebook/twitter will know, as soon as these youngsters find a bottle with thier name on it, they take a picture of the bottle and post it up, thus millions of pics with cokes logo/product on, with the poster saying how ace it is. For free.
The person who thought of that is really bloody clever….Posted 4 years agoEdukatorMember
A 4% increase initially then a decline as many don’t want to be seen drinking coke with “Willian”, “Angela”, “Jeremy”, “Harry”, “Penelope” “Tom”, “Bono”, “Charles”, “Diana”, “Richard”, “Elizabeth”… on and they sit on the shelves. Unless of course Coke are clever enough not use names that encourage drinking Pepsi instead.Posted 4 years agoandytherocketeerSubscriber

Which are both owned by….
I was already going to the cabinet to buy a drink. So my contribution to their sales statistics (even if it is infinitesimal) is for something without a silly name on rather than one with.
edit: although next time, I’ll pick something from the cabinet next door, and check that it’s not produced/bottled under licence by Cadbury-Schweppes (or whoever it is these days).Posted 4 years agoBiscuit PoweredMember
I really don’t get this promotion.
I was off up the shop the other day and my missus asked me to get her a coke, look for one with her name on it. I agreed to do as she asked.
I went up and picked up the first one on the shelf. I think it had Dave on it.
I took it home and gave it to my missus. “Sorry, I looked, but they just didn’t have one with your name on”Posted 4 years agoirelanstMember
I was in a shop with my daughter and her friend and they were sorting through the bottles looking for their names;
“You won’t find your names, they’re only Dutch names”
“Oh, OK we’ll look for Koen then”, Koen is a Dutch friend, it’s pronounced koon.
“Come on you two, we have to go”
“We can’t find any Koen’s”
“Let’s go” we left and carried on walking down the street with the friends mum.
“Dad, can we go and look for Koen’s in that shop?”
It took some explaining to the mother I can tell you.Posted 4 years agojonah tontoMember

Next time I pick up a pig for the freezer I’ll ask what it’s name is. Was.
when i had the farm, we named one of the pigs ‘lovely’ so when we had people over for dinner and they commented “this pork is lovely” we got to giggle – you make your own fun in the countrysidePosted 4 years agoscotroutesSubscriber

I think theres possibly a subtext to the ‘share’ campaign apart from the voguish ‘sharing’ is like ‘liking’ social networky thing.
A few years back some of the big confectionary companies got called before parliament over the selling of super-sized chocolate bars – Mars Kingsize and the like. In that hearing cadburys managed to wriggle off the hook because their bars break into chunks and were therefore, they said, something to be shared amongst several people, not one big portion of diabetes for one person. Following that Mars re-packaged their monster sized bars as ‘Duos’ – two small bars in a pack the same size as the previous king size ones. So a pack therefore contained two small portions for two people to share rather than one big one.
The coke share campaign is on the 500ml bottles which are pretty much the default choice in most outlets now, its getting quite difficult to find a 330ml can in many shops except maybe in multipacks. But on the back of these bottles is nutritional info, RDAs etc relating to a 250ml portion, not the the 500ml thats in the bottle.Posted 4 years ago
