I recently saw the new Coke ad, where an older man gets reinvigorated by drinking Coke. Naturally, he's drinking out of a glass contour bottle (and given the results, I wouldn't be surprised if it was a sucrose-sweetened variety! ;). What universe do they film these commercials in, anyway? (I want to join!)

Maybe the Coca-Cola Corporation has their own bottler that they go to just for the commercials?

On closer inspection, those bottles appear to have classic red crown tops (!), rather than the white screw-on tops of the "Grab it in Glass" experiment (see <http://www.bevnet.com/bevboard/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=3;t=001146>).

The same happened to me... when I saw the american Coke ads from 1994 where appears a Coca-Cola Classic Glass Bottle with red ACL Label on it, I thought I could find Coke glass bottles in U.S., and in my first visit to McAllen,TX, I searched like crazy that glass bottle... no success... later I found out that that bottle was a prop...
