Most of the world (and to some extent South Africa) has become a security obsessed bundle of joy. I know that there are more than 250 in the Johannesburg CBD, and that brought down crime in the area considerably over the years. That is only a drop in the ocean compared to cities like London (which has more than 4 million surveillance cameras keeping an eye on things) though.
On a lighter note than that, Coca-Cola have released an absolutely stunning TV advert. This advert features security camera footage captured on cameras all over the world. The advert reminds that there’s still some good left in this world, if you ask me. I must admit that I don’t like being watched the whole time, but its good to know that security cameras capture more than just people committing crimes and idiots crashing cars or causing accidents.
This is the TV Advert that Coca-Cola Released:
For those of you who did not know, Coca-Cola has been around for 126 years. The company was founded in 1886 in Atlanta, Georgia in the USA. Coca-Cola is available in more than 200 countries globally. What do you think of this Coca-Cola advert? Drop me a comment and let me know. Feedback is appreciated and welcome on Running Wolf’s Rant.

Coca-Cola is the most popular soft drink in South Africa. It’s also one of the most popular soft drinks in the world. The Coca-Cola company turned 125 years old earlier this week. Coca-Cola was first invented by a pharmacist named John Pemberton (as a medicine to cure headaches) in 1886. To celebrate this 125th anniversary, Running Wolf’s Rant has decided to feature Coca-Cola as the 10 Facts post topic for today.
Here are some interesting facts about Coca-Cola:
Over 1 billion cans of Coca-Cola are consumed daily on Planet Earth.
Coca-Cola is sold in more than 200 countries around the world.
Coca-Cola can be used to help cure jellyfish stings.
Coca-Cola can also be used as a cleaning solution, cleaning anything from rusty pans to dirty toilets. It can also be used to remove odor.
Coca-Cola was first green.
Coca-Cola means “to make mouth happy” in Chinese.
If all the Coca-Cola bottles in the world were laid end to end they would reach the moon and back more than 1,677 times.
The bottling rights for Coca-Cola were sold for US$1.00 in the 1890s. The trademark Coca-Cola, used in the marketplace since 1886, was registered with the US Patent Office on the 31st of January 1893 and the trademark “Coke” was registered in 1945.
Coca-Cola and the Olympics began their association in Amsterdam (in the Netherlands) in the summer of 1928. That association has continued for all subsequent Games.
There are nearly 10,450 soft drinks from the Coca-Cola Company (who now makes 500 brands of soft drinks) consumed every second of every day.

The 2010 FIFA World Cup starts in less than 16 days in Johannesburg, South Africa at Soccer City stadium (which has a seating capacity of +/- 95,000). Coca-Cola is one of the sponsors of the 2010 FIFA World Cup and they have released this advert to build up hype for the tournament. The advert features the history of celebration in football (which was started by Cameroonian footballer Roger Milla at the FIFA World Cup in Italy in 1990 according to the advert). This is quite original in my opinion. This TV advert has been selected to be featured on Running Wolf’s Rant today in the Television category.
