The Fanta story in TFA comments is interesting (though I'd read it earlier in another Fark thread). Gonna have to see if my library has that book. I know Coca-Cola has a pretty shady past as a CIA front, so their history should be a good read.


Bottles would be wrapped in wet towels before being affixed to the underwings of their planes.

I guess that would be fine if you didn't mind the bottle exploding when you opened it. I can't imagine the wing of a 109 in flight is anything close to vibration-free, especially if you had to do any kind of maneuvering.

It's a common misconception. The Nazis loved Jews. Unfortunately, it was unrequited love. If the Nazis couldn't have the Jews, they thought no one should.

Fun fact: during wwII, fighter pilots in the hot south pacific would often take bottles (coke, beer, both, not sure) up in their planes while on patrol, as the cool high altitudes would cool them for a refreshing beverage when they returned.

The Repeated Meme: Watch fob?


Navajo-themed good luck charm from the 1920s.

Because Coke bottlers were regional, there's all sorts of goodies like that from the early 20th century.  By the 1940s, Coke had standardized all its advertising and promo stuff, and those things went away.

In the early 60s, Billy Wilder made a film about an American exec sent to Berlin to introduce a brand of soda east of the Berlin Wall.  It was supposed to be Coke, originally, but Coca-Cola refused to have anything to do with Communists, so they got Pepsi instead.

As the exec in the story gets accused of being a western spy, the whole thing becomes all the more amusing if you know about Coke's involvement with the CIA.

It's called One, Two, Three and I highly recommend it.

Actually, I'd imagine the wing of most WWII fighters WOULD be pretty vibration-free.  And the kind of maneuvers you pull in a dogfight aren't "shake the bottle until it blows"; they're more sustained, directional, 3 to 4 g kind of things.

Exhausting for the pilot (I was dripping sweat after a 30 minute simulated dogfight over Cape Cod bay in a SIAI Marchetti SF260)... but the co-pilot/instructor didn't even spill his soda.

If your wing starts vibrating, you're probably not making it back to the field...

The 109 was a remarkably stable aircraft, and the bottle was wrapped in a towel.  The worry would be from sudden air turbulence.

Mayor Bloomberg would have to ban those fuel tanks, though - clearly they're over 32 oz.

I don't know if I'd call it love. He was obsessed certainly as many people were after the war.

He spent the last years of his life trying to make a movie of Schlinder's Ark only to have the project taken away from him because Spielberg wanted to do it.

I have an empty  Scho-Ka-Kola tin lying around jere somewhere.  It's a dark chocolate candy bar (well, wedges) that has coffee and cola nuts in it.  It was issued to Luftwaffe pilots during WWII as a way to keep them alert, because it's got a high caffeine content.

You can still buy it.

It's actually pretty good, but you wouldn't want to eat the whole tin at once because it'll make you vibrate.

Coca Cola: The Lost Commercial

Adolf Hitler is seen stumbling out of a blown up bunker. Russians are cheering behind him. He walks by a small boy holding a Coke.

Boy: Heir Fuhrer?
Hitler: Vat?
Boy: Would you like mien Coca Cola, her Furhrer?
Hitler: Yah.

Hitler takes the coke and stumbles on past the boy. He takes a deep, refreshing drink of the cola, pauses and turns to the boy.

Hitler: Hey, kid. Here you go.
Hitler tosses the boy his swastika armband. Boy catches it.
Boy: (excited) Thanks Heir Fuhrer!
Hitler: You are the Fuhrer now!
Boy: Thanks. I think I can turn this Reich around.
Boy runs off
Hitler (pause) Hey, godless Russians! Their goes the Fuhrer! Get him!!
