With the 15th anniversary of 9/11 just a few days away, I think it's appropriate that we check out this awesome soda memorial to remind us of that sad day 15 years ago. Click read more to see the sculpture I'm talking about.
I'm speechless. What a great use of soda. I'm left with so many questions to ask this guy. For starters, does he work at the Walmart? Or did this dude just randomly stumble upon the soda aisle and just start moving boxes left and right? Did he have help doing this? Because if he didn't, it seems kind of weird to me that he'd do all of this on his own at a Walmart in bum fuck Florida.
More importantly, I love the entire sculpture but I'm not loving the decision to go with coke zero for the towers. Kind of a slap in the face to all the 9/11 victims, am I right? I mean come on, coke zero is absolutely terrible. There's nothing worse than someone trying to convince me that diet soda tastes the same as regular soda. It's a load of bullshit. Coke Zero, "All the coke taste, but none of the calories!" Coke Zero tastes like dirt and chemicals. So I'm insulted that this artist chose coke zero for the actual buildings. If it was up to me, I'd go with either Sprite, Grape Fanta, or if you want to go with the real factor, then the obvious choice is diet coke because of the silver box.
I'm willing to look past this whole coke zero crisis for now, and just say it's the little things like this that make our country great. I bet everyone that saw those shitty coke zero towers were smiling from ear to ear.
