I don't want Anna's bottle. It makes me feel a bit uncomfortable drinking from a bottle with some else's name on it.

I haven't seen one with Mardy on it yet.

I suppose Mandy would be close, if I could find one.

I had a bottle of coke called Simon yesterday.

MardyBra Thu 04-Jul-13 19:40:22

Although actually I'm not called Mardy in RL.

I love looking through the bottles, but I prefer my come in a can so the whole promotion doesn't work for me!

MardyBra Thu 04-Jul-13 19:40:47

Yes, I particularly don't want a bloke's coke auntiebrenda

I had one called Pepsi. wink

MardyBra Thu 04-Jul-13 19:42:04

Is that Shirley's mate Puppy?

PuppyMonkey Thu 04-Jul-13 19:43:50

That's the one.

I think I will stick to irn bru till the promotion is finished. I don't want anyone elses name on my coke.

I randonly saw 2 of the DCs' names on bottles, so was morally obliged to buy them. Now of course the other 2 don't have their very own coke bottle, and to be honest they're struggling to get through the day as a result. These evil capitalist multinationals really don't think things through, do they?

YANBU by the way.

MardyBra Thu 04-Jul-13 19:45:06

grin and shock at Ifonly : "but I prefer my come in a can"

freddiefrog Thu 04-Jul-13 19:46:48

YANBU!

I've never found my name so I hunt out the generic 'friends' bottles

I found a bottle of coke with my name on the other day and I was on a high all day. It doesn't take much. xxx

there is a machine in our tesco to print your own, imo though life is too short - just buy a pepsi instead

YANBU. And I feel like I'm being a twat when I stand there in the petrol station checking through all the bottles to see if I can find my DHs or dcs names. I checked the website, they don't do my name so close family is as good as its going to get.

MardyBra Thu 04-Jul-13 19:48:11

I don't really like pepsi. I have a diet coke addiction (which I have managed down to one fix a day).

I bought 2 for £2 last wk, one with my name and grabbed another without looking. Then as I was leaving the petrol station I bumped into a guy I had an awkward date with the wkend before. We had a brief chat when we both glanced down and noticed at the same time my named bottle plus the other bottle with his name on.
He probably wouldn't have thought anything of it had I not gone beetroot red (why do I do that?!). I havn't heard from him since. Not buying coke anymore till they stop putting damn names on the bottles!

"I prefer my come in a can" - I actually snorted Pepsi out of my nose reading that filthy mind

I avoid the ones with names of people I don't like. Takes a while to find a decent one ; )

I used to buy coke/diet coke fairly often but have only bought one bottle since they launched this new campaign.

From my perspective it's a shit marketing ploy. If I want to buy a bottle of coke, I'll just buy one. I don't want a bottle with 'someone else's' name on it - that makes me feel excluded as a consumer.

However, I do understand that they're getting some nice exposure on social media out of it.

I saw an abandoned Dean on a pedestrian crossing light in Trafalger square today. Poor Dean bottle , left half drunk.

[shocked] grin

I had one with Jade on the other day. (Not my name.) It was either that or Emmanuel. I decided I'd rather be a Jade.
There isn't one with my name on. Waaah sad
