Final Thoughts

I found this glass in a second hand store and was going to shoot it when my wife said it should be spared. Its a piece of history, I remember the “New Coke” fiasco…

 

 

Its amazing that great advertising like that didn’t convince people to drink the “New Taste…”
Cue the inevitable backpedal 5 years later!
