Watchdog rules on Coca-Cola's rotten lies

Coca-Cola has been ordered to publish corrective advertisements over its controversial "Motherhood & Myth-Busting" advertising campaign featuring actor Kerry Armstrong which came under widespread attack last year.

Using the wholesome motherly image of Armstrong to convince parents the soft drink was "kiddy-safe", the advertisements claimed that Coca-Cola did not make children fat, did not rot their teeth and was not packed with large amounts of caffeine.

Such claims were myths, Armstrong vowed in full-page print advertisements which ran nationally on October 11 last year.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
