Thanks Coca-Cola... I Guess.
Sending over a giant box filled with Coke bottles, the Coca-Cola giants' latest little project includes bringing together Eastern graphic designers from China (I can only assume Coke is going to be a huge sponsor for the ‘08 Olympics), and West-side-of-the hemisphere musicians— mostly DJs like Kaskade and Benny Benassi.
The point? “To interpret the ideas and passions that connect us— by sharing and expressing one of eight themes: Happiness, Active Optimism, Human Collaboration, Peace On Earth, Individual Perseverance, Healthy World, Uplifting Moments and Global Harmony.” Excuse me... barf.
The 8-track CD consists of saccharine-sweet world trance and dance. What else from a song inspired ny the concept of Global Harmony?
If only another thing to have to dust, the bottles are pretty to look at although... empty?! Great. Now what am I supposed to do with all this rum. So much for Active Optimism.
