"I want to break free"

Have you seen these new coke commercial for the new Coke C2? The one with all sorts of people doing all sorts of odd or outrageous things. Acting like real individuals? Riding miniature motorbikes in the office, and dancing around.

And the music plays: "I want to break free, I want to break free, Oh how I want to break freeeeeeee!"

All of these idiots are dancing around and acting real cool and such.

It's about expressing their "individuality" by doing all of these weird and odd behaviors.

And of course, drinking coke C2 which is a mass produced corporate addictive caffeine drink. And one that is trying to capitalize on the latest craze: LOW CARBS.

How stupid they all look dancing around with coke cans attached to their faces and acting such "individuals". All the while being idiotic corporate puppets.

Seems that we live in such a ticky tacky politically correct country these days. Where most everyone is drone of some kind. All of the political correctness and regimentation has made peoples deepest desire to be individuals. And that is the last thing that most people are.

So the Coca Cola corporation has the answer. If you want to "break free" and be an individual, you can all (ALL?) drink coke C2.

Nothing makes you more of an individual than doing what everybody else is doing.


This commercial bugs me, it makes me want to smash all of their smug, stupid faces, does it bug you?

That commercial bugs me too. Every time I see it, I think that if THAT'S how C2 makes people act, I'll be avoiding it.

I think you're reading just a bit to much into this there pal.

Uh, are you sure about this......... Settle down.......I get it........sarcasm.

No, and you're scaring me.
It's just TV dude, take it for what it's worth. Better yet just put your TV to the curb next trash day......

C2 is better than Pepsi Zero or whatever. End of story.

Actually, Coke Classic is better than regular Pepsi too.

C2 sucks. It tastes horrible. How bout instead of cutting carbs you actually go out and do something? Diet drinks as a whole taste awful.

Come one man...you're a child of the 70's aren't you?

Remember Coke's old Gingle??

I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing


I'd like to build the world a home
and furnish it with love.
Grow apple trees and honey bees
and snow white turtle dove.

I'd like to teach the world to sing
in perfect harmony.
I'd like to hold it in my arms
and keep it company.

I'd like to see the world for once
all standing hand in hand.
And hear them echo through hills
for peace throughout the land.

That's the song that I hear.
Let the world sing today.
A song of peace that echos on
And never goes away.

C2 sucks Diet coke is better.

Most Coke ads make me not want to buy Coke.

I stopped buying sprite after those dumbass commericals they air now started, and emailed them about it too.

Yes this commercial really gets to me too. I don't know why. I guess it's just the whole "drink C2 and people won't judge you as you act like a fucking moron" message.

But that may just be me.

If I'm not mistaken, that was the title of a
song by Queen sung by Freddie Mercury
who was lamenting about trying to come out

Yea he was queer.

I drink Pepsi.

The best thing that cans of C2 are good for is shooting them unopened with hollow points (or nastier).

I don't like the commercial simply because I don't care for classic QUEEN tunes used to pimp soda.

(and no the song is not about coming out. How freaking OUT do you need to be wearing a feather boa in a band called QUEEN? It's just a good song.)
