How do you find such fun and cool stuff? I'm a big fan of the Olympics and yes I also love Coke. (I don't drink coffee so I have to get my caffeine somewhere, right?)
Coca-Cola didn't skimp on this little project. They never do. Leave it to them to create something so innovative. I can't resist designing one of my own.

Glad I could help you part with some money.

Mahan, what the heck are you talking about?

Jess said...

Elfin, thanks. I wondered if anybody would notice my super sneaky header replacement. Nope, it's not fabric in the works. Just something I was playing with.

When Coca-Cola first came to China in the 1920's, they were searching for Chinese characters that approximated the sounds of, amazingly enough, "Coca-Cola". However, Chinese being the language that it is, various symbols that have the same or very similar sounds do NOT translate as having the same meaning; when well-meaning Chinese shopkeepers (without company approval) put up signs with the syllables approximating "Coca-Cola", the symbols they chose translated as "Bite The Wax Tadpole" (among other things).

Needless to say, the company has chosen symbols that sound like "Coca-Cola" that mean "It Brings Refreshment".

Jess said...

Ah ha! Thank you.

Now there's a bit of obscure knowledge that will come up on Jeopardy no doubt! Love the images, and yes, I like Coca Cola and the Olympics!
