This Sunday is the 15th anniversary of 9/11. And a Walmart in Panama City Beach, Florida decided to pay tribute by building a replica of the Twin Towers . . . using 12-packs of COKE. Which a lot of people think was in bad taste.
They used black Coke Zero boxes for the towers, and 12-packs of Coke and Diet Coke for an American flag. So the Internet went nuts when someone posted a photo of it.
Coca-Cola released a statement yesterday that said THEY came up with the idea, and Walmart approved it. But they took it down yesterday after people complained.
Also, a mattress place in San Antonio posted a 9/11-themed ad, where two employees knock over two stacks of mattresses. Then the owner says, “Never forget.” She admitted it was a “stupid” idea though, and they pulled it down.
