Here's a pic of the Coca-Cola olympic packaging, cans and labels will carry the Coke logo from different countries (i.e.: U.S. with the american flag, Ethiopia, Russia, Thailand and coming soon China), and some american athletes appear in the 12 pack box (the only one who's familiar for me is LeBron James)...

Here's a link to the pic of the fridge pack:

Any idea if these have MCR? I don't see the logo anywhere on the box.

McDonalds had cups with foreign languages on them several years ago, I think for the 2004 Olympics, and some conservative (are there any other kind?) radio talk show host had a fit.

This is a excellent move for Coke because now they have a product that appeals to every body through there country this should make them good money.

If you want to see the entire set of cans and 20 oz. labels, go to mycokerewards.com, then go to the Rewards & Contests, then Featured Programs and then make click in the Olympics square, when the animation ends, click on the rainbow can...

also you can see it here:

I'm out in Santa Monica CA, and have seen in the olympic 2 Liter, 20oz, and Fridge packs.

The 20oz have the foregin scrpit in the lower right. under the dynamic ribbon. I was hopping for a much large script. But, none the less, it looks very good.

Bought the fridge pack with the multi-colored China can the other day. Not a really big thing, but anyone else disappointed that the actual cans aren't quite as colorful as the box pictured it? Picture on the box shows the yellow and gold lower colors to be really pronounced, and they really don't even exist on the can, just the blue and green stripes. I'm not quite sure that it is the China can, it doesn't have China printed on it as Russia, USA, etc. have theirs printed, but it is the can referenced as China in the earlier Coke links posted. Oh well ...
