Have A Coke And A Comment

Phil Mooney has been in charge of The Coca-Cola Company’s archives since 1977. In his role as archivist, he has conducted numerous interviews for radio and television including three segments on the Today Show and appearances on The History Channel, the Food Network and CNN. He also writes “Collectors Columns” as a means to keep in touch with collectors and other interested parties.
Now (that it’s 2008) he has a company blog.

This is our first Company blog – but definitely not our last. We’re starting with the Company’s heritage – not just the history, but the love people have for Coke. We’ll talk about people who collect Coke memorabilia, the items they collect and the stories they tell. We’ll talk about recipes made using Coca-Cola and our other drinks. We’ll talk about what’s happening today with Coke – and how it relates to things from our past. And we’ll talk about the new World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta, which just opened last summer.

The most recent post on Coca-Cola Conversations offers behind-the-scenes information on the the making of one of this season’s Super Bowl ads.



About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
