|Warren Buffett on Cherry Coke|
Billionaire Warren Buffett helped Coca-Cola launch Cherry Coke into the China Market by adorning a cartoon character of him onto limited addition Cherry Coke cans and bottles.
Who better to pitch Cherry Coke in China then the highly regarded investment genius who says that he drinks at least five cans a day consuming regular Coke at the office and Cherry Coke at home. He claims it is his secret to staying young.
Buffet didn’t ask to get paid to help with the promotion well at least not directly after all Berkshire Hathaway is the largest single shareholder in Coca-Cola with an investment worth about $17 billion.
The Oracle of Omaha’s cult like status isn’t just limited to Americans, an estimated 3,000 Chinese investors flocked to Berkshire Hathaway's annual shareholders meeting last year.
That subliminal message might be if I drink one of these everyday maybe I will be as Rich as Warren Buffet.
While making my purchase of Cherry Coke at Family Mart in Shanghai, I asked some Chinese people if they knew who was the person on the can a few said they didn’t know some creative answers and asked if it was Colonel Sanders of KFC ha ha ha.
