This has absolutely nothing to do with virtualization, but it does relate to product marketing, so I thought I’d write about it.
I just had a Coke Blak. For those of you who don’t know what it is, its a new coffee-flavored Coke. Perhaps just reading about such an abomination makes you say “Dear God! Why would they DO such a thing? That sounds HORRIBLE!” My answer to you would be “I have no idea”, and “Man, is horrible an understatement.”
If you want to experience it for yourself, here’s my suggestion: save the 75 cents by simply taking a day old cup of coffee and pouring it into a bottle of Coke. Shake vigorously. Try not to gag when you take a swig.
As a marketing guy, the decsion to constantly create new Coke products baffles me. There’s a lot of wisdom in the old saying “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, and the Coke guys don’t seem to understand that. Coca-cola classic is the best selling food product in the world…why mess with it? Dare I bring up the fiasco that was Coke II?
I’m going to brush my teeth and try not to have nightmares about Coke Blak. I’ll see you all in the morning.
