Coca-Cola leaves the contour shape for awhile, and changes it for a soccer ball shape...

It's a limited edition 400 ml bottle for the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, probably this bottle will soon arrive in Mexico too...

Yeah, I don't quite think that "like" appropriately describes their soccer fanaticism.

It seems that this bottle was only released in Mexico City, cause the logos of the football teams from Mexico City appear on it: America, Cruz Azul and Pumas...

Would it be wild to see a Christmas tree decorated with just these bottles? LOL That would be real cool.

LMAO :D

Maybe somebody in Mexico will do that next holidays...

Or maybe somebody will play a mini-soccer game with the bottle...

how big are those? they look like 2-liters, but i'm now thinking that they may be small... like pint-size.

can you take a picture of one of them in your hand?

It's quite small actually... It's a 400 ml bottle (13.5 oz) ...

Unfortunately that bottle is not available in my town :( , I think that that bottle is only available in Mexico City because in that bottle appears the logos of the Mexico City soccer teams sponsored by Coca-Cola: America (Yuck!), Cruz Azul and Pumas...but probably during the world cup Coke will release it nationwide. If I have one in the future I will send you a picture...

Finally! The soccer ball shape bottle is available in my city! it's a set of 4 bottles and they're like this one:

but it's different on the other side of the bottle, one has the FIFA Cup in the other side, the other has the official mascot: a lion called "Goleo VI", the other has three players of the mexican soccer team, and the other has the logo of the 2006 Soccer world cup... I'll post a picture as soon as I connect my scanner and by request of popologist I will scan it with my hand on it.. :D I thought that it has the size of a baseball ball but actually it's a little more bigger...
