A story about our worlds most influencial company that has changed the face of advertising and thinking and even christmas.

The world will never be the same again

The story I am about to tell you is the story about the most influencial products company in the world, whose products have helped change the world and have become a living icon for all to see...and it all started with some words scribbled on a peace of paper...

Over a century ago an old doctor rode into town on his horse and cart and slowly got off the card and headed into a pharmacy and for over an hour talked to a pharmasist regarding a product.
After an hour an agreement was met upon and the old doctor went back out to his card and collected $500 he had brought, his entire lives savings for many arduous years was now summed up in this bag to which he handed over to the pharmasist without hesitation.
After counting the money in a store room the pharmasist smiled with glee and then collected the products to which he was to give in return for the money. He collected three items.
A three legged kettle, a sturring stick and a recepie scribbled on a peace of paper. The old doctor took the three items and smiled. He then nodded in respect and thanked the man and left.
The pharmasist was glad to be rid of the recepe because the money could now pay off some depts and place him in better standing while the old doctors life savings, many decades of earnings and hard work had now been sold for three simple items.
A three legged kettle, a sturring stick and most important of all...words scribbled on a peace of paper, for you see any of the other things could have been thrown away at this point, and in the history of things we do not know their current location, they could be made into scrap metal by now or sitting in some dark corner of a pawn brokers shop or simply discarded and crushed into the side of a road.
But these two have no real importance when compared to the words scribbled on a peace of paper. For you see the words written on that paper would go on to create a product that would change the world.
Songs and music would be compused for this product. Great artworks and pictures of celebrities and kings would be drawn and photographed with this product in their hands. This product has single handedly traversed the world and had its name on banners in almost every major sporting event for the last half century.
In fact saving animal campains have been made in its name. It has single handedly changed the colour of christmas for many generations and the product itself and memerabelia of all kinds has been made creating the owner of the recepe billions of dollars.
And to think it all started with a doctor who gave up his lifes savings for wrighting on a peace of paper.
And...the products name you might ask?
Well...it is called Coka Cola
