Coca-Cola Makes Up For Dumb Marketers
Beverage monster Coca-Cola has put some clever viral clips on the web in a cunning ploy to target early beverage adopters with its new apple flavour Fanta, aside from lacking a human LD50 serving of caffiene its bright process green colour an artificial taste could make it an ideal rival to Mountain Dew for a late-night coding marathon or LAN party. Makes up for the dumb marketing tactics used to promote their signature drinks brand recently in the US; though the Doom3 clip ending could be viewed in bad taste when one considers the recent controversy of life imitating the Rockstar North's Manhunt console game with the murder of a school boy in England.
