Today is World Television Day, and I thought it would make a good subject for this week’s Friday Fun contest.
Coke and TV go perfectly together, though this 1950 painting seems to favor the Coca-Cola! The artwork was used to create a magazine ad that appeared in May-June of that year.
This is another piece from the Archives I’ve never quite understood. I really have no idea why the bottle of Coke is taller than the people and why it’s hovering above the living room floor!
The game: Write a clever or funny caption for this Coke & TV image. (If you’re too young to recognize it, the large brown box on the right side is actually the TV!)
The prize and an extra week to be creative: Submit your caption through the “comments” area below this post. Entries are due by 8 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 4 (Eastern time). I’ll pick the winner and announce it on Dec. 4. (You get extra time for this contest due to the Thanksgiving holiday next week.)
The winner will receive a Coca-Cola prize from our “goodie closet.”
I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
