I came up with this idea about 20 yrs ago. Thought it would be a nice idea for an advertisement. The idea was to have "TIME FOR A COKE" at the bottom & top but one to be inverted. Never could decide whether the top or bottom should be inverted! I would like to hear opinions on that point. This prototype was made from real bottles, real wood & glass blasting beads for sand (drove U.S. customs nuts when I brought it up).
Thinking that I have what I can sell to Coke, make my fortune and move up to the sunny tropical beaches of Hudson Bay that Al Gore keeps promising, I made my move. I contacted Coca Cola & they told me that they have 4 advertising agencies that I would have to work thru. Each told me in turn that they didn't take "outside ideas".
I finally just mailed my prototype to the Coke musee' in Atlanta & resigned myself to living in the climate of St. Maarten instead of tropical Hudson bay. Guess we were meant to suffer!
