Has anyone seen the new coca cola advert?
I think coca cola should re-edit the text in their latest promotional advert. There is a very insensitive line there:
'WHILE THE REST OF THE WORLD WORRIES ABOUT THE FUTURE, ONE BILLION AFRICANS ARE SHARING COKE'.
Am i the only one who thinks this is a put down?

lol @OP, its a blatant insult right there. I dont drink coca-cola, but if I did this would be the last day.
btw, did the ad say 'coke'? or 'coca-cola'? I'm sure they'd never use 'coke', unless they want serious trouble.

i found It very insulting as well. Almost paints Africans as a continent pre-occupied with merry making than planning bout the future

rather, I don't see the point! How, is this advert related to coke!?

Just saw the bolded text, while it doesn't make sense it is insultive I believe also! But they have an army of people specially employed to weed out things like this, how did they miss this? Probably, they did not find anything wrong with it!

implication: Africa is less concerned about the future. they are more bothered about getting bottles of coca-cola to possibly drink themselves to stupor. what other continent could possibly be more concerned and apprehensive about the economy of the future than Africans.

these people have insulted our intelligence far too much o!enough is enough

we have more pressing issues to attend to than gulping down 7 cubes of sugar in coloured water.

NOT AN INSULT!!!! IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE WAY YOU READ IT
EXAMPLE : ITS AN INSULT IF YOU THINK THEY ARE TRYING TO SAY WE DON'T WORRY ABOUT FUTURE BUT IF YOU RE-READ IT CAREFULLY THE WORD worry in that sentence clears it all Just to say that we are a very happy people that doesn't place too much on our mind .,ENGLISH NOR EASY LOLS

it's funny how some people suffer from selective hearing/ selecting reading. the advert talked about Western countries are getting financial bailout, how 1 in 5 European players is African. How come you didn't see any of these but all you saw was the last sentence which talks about Africans enjoying Coke?
