wow. just wow.
 
2013-05-21 08:23:25 PM
That's actually pretty cool.
 
2013-05-21 08:50:36 PM
that was a pretty awesome idea. it got a smile out of me.
 
2013-05-21 09:13:17 PM
That is pretty cool. Didn't Google do something like that?
 
2013-05-21 09:44:28 PM
That's nice, but I think the India-Pakistan cricket matches are more effective.
 
2013-05-21 10:03:31 PM
Very nice.  Vote this one up, y'all - it deserves a sot on the mainpage, if only for the idea it represents.

They're selling nutrition-less corn syrup water.
Let's all buy Coca-Cola and solve the issues of the world, many of which are linked to companies like Coca-Cola exploiting countries like India and Pakistan!

Poor bastards at least get sugar, unless our corn subsidizing selves

Shouldn't have added the 'dance' part.  You'll see.

They actually use real sugar in the Middle East and Mexico. Corn syrup is an American thing driven by strange corn subsidies.

They should add a module that arranges marriages.
Add a module for disintegrations too.....

That was excellent.  I actually got weepy.  :D

I liked this a lot.
 
2013-05-22 02:17:37 AM
it's really neat, but how do they get all those poor people in and out of the cells
 
2013-05-22 02:28:50 AM
Cool idea. Now gimme a call when they put an end to all the gang-raping.
 
2013-05-22 02:30:30 AM
If only Israel and Iran had Coke machines...

Which end up both harming the US in some form or fashion.

FTFY and so farking what?  And so what if it's marketing?  And so what if they make a bazillion bucks off it?  This is pretty damn cool, and if I see such a machine near here, I'll buy a Coke and make a single serving friend.

Maybe the guys with each country's launch codes could give each other a pressed fruit bowl.
 
2013-05-22 04:37:31 AM
Cool idea but I want to see the vids where raving nutcases in their respective countries get to rant at each other remotely.
 
2013-05-22 05:01:17 AM
If things like this would actually bring about more peace, I might be willing to accept some form of corporate overlords.

Granted, then the Cola Wars might escalate from blind taste tests to armed confrontations...
 
2013-05-22 05:41:45 AM
How long until they start mooning each other and throwing shoes at the camera?

I sure don't miss being college age and thinking I was magically so much smarter than everyone else on the planet.

The whole idea of this machine seems like something that has to be heavily moderated.  I mean, What if no one in Pakistan wants a cola the same time you do?  Why did everyone arrange themselves in a camera-pleasing circle around the machine instead of a more natural line?  What if the person in India is a Hindu fanatic and merely wants to use the machine to verbally abuse some Pakistanis for the death of his grandfather during partition or something.  What if, you know, what you guys said.

Fun idea, but I doubt it lasted much longer than the filming of the commercial.  But, hopefully, maybe I'm wrong.

Both machines were communicating via the english language.  Does this seem strange to anyone else?

Actually in several other countries corn syrup is illegal for use in soda. I have friends in Finland, Japan, and Mexico who  bring me soda from the regions when they come over. SUGAR!  :-)

I was a little taken aback when I saw the part where they're told to take ten paces away from the machine, turn, draw, and fire.
 
2013-05-22 08:52:21 AM
i'm sure if they took the stupid people out of power in both of those countries the average people wouldn't mind the other people so much.

that said i have no idea why they hate each other anyway.

Two simultaneous revolutions in India and Pakistan would be pants-crappingly scary, and not in a good way.
 
2013-05-22 09:06:09 AM
Over under on how long before some Indian guy exposes his junk to the Pakistani side, and Pakistan answers with bombs? I give it 2 weeks.

Well just for fun and to make things even more exciting, in addition to having same day revolutions in two nuclear powers, we could also throw in North Korea deciding to shell Seoul and see what happens.
 
2013-05-22 09:52:03 AM
Yeah, this begs to answer a lot of censorship and legality questions.  Does coke own the rights of anyone that uses that machine? How do they choose which video appears on other side? What if the videos escalate in death threats, can we sue coke?

Great idea, but I suspect this can't last over time. 1 A-hole rule to F it up for everyone.
 
2013-05-22 10:03:36 AM
So nobody else found it the least bit patronizing that they were forcing the people to draw happy smiley faces and peace signs, and then rewarded them with a can of sugar water, like some sort of screwed-up Pavlovian experiment?  No?  Just me then.

It's just you, but don't feel bad. Here, have a nice refreshing Coke™.
