    ATLANTA, Feb. 16, 2012 -- The Board of Directors of The Coca-Cola Company today elected Robert "Bobby" Kotick as a Director of the Company, effective immediately.
    Kotick, 48, is President, Chief Executive Officer and a Director of Activision Blizzard, Inc., a global interactive entertainment software leader and the world's largest independent video game publisher. An entrepreneur in the interactive industry, Kotick purchased a stake in Activision in 1990, became CEO in 1991 and grew the company to its industry-leading position.

    As a resident of Atlanta, lol World of Coke will be full of scantily-dressed elves of WoW and there will be no tasting anymore in the end of the tour.

    Key word is 'A'. He's not in charge of Coca-Cola, but appointed to their board of directors.

    Maybe he should focus on putting out good games from his regular gig rather then trying to sell cans of Coke.

    So a bottle of pepsi is sold, and EXP points go into Modern Warfare or whatever.
    Or a bottle of coke is sold, and profits go straight to Kotick.

    Either way, Kotick wins.

    Fuck this Coca-Cola's stock has been dropping and this won't make it better.
    I don't want this douchebag runing Atlantas economy more right now.
    The only thing that could've gone worse would be to make him Director of Delta.

    News about Bobby Kotick? Uh oh. Mentioning his name on an online forum is like spilling a drop of blood in a shark tank.

    Makes me think twice about drinking Coke. And Pepsi, as mentioned is already in their pocket. So that leaves RC, and the off-brand delicious colas like Nichol Kola, Double Cola, and Pig Iron Cola. Honestly, if people tasted any of those last 3, they'd never touch Coke or Pepsi again, but I digress. My normal soda is Mountain Dew, regardless of Activision making a buck on it. I love it still.

    You realize that Mountain Dew is made by PepsiCo, right?

    As a coca-cola fan, I'm very disappointed by this.
    Now each time I drink coke, his face will be in my head...

    And to everyone else, seriously go try a Double Cola before you question why I don't need much of a reason to not drink Coke.

    Lol, I read that as if it was a joke.
    (i.e, Rick Astley is the new director of Honda)
    That's how it felt, anyway.
