Coke just released a video in their Coke Chase Super Bowl campaign titled Coke Chase - The Last Laugh. It stars the arab with camels seen in the beginning of the Coke Super Bowl 2013 Ad. An Arab-American group called the ad racist last week and raised a big controversy.
Coca-Cola Responses to Coke Super Bowl 2013 Ad Being Called Racist with Funny Video
Coca-Cola has just released a funny video response to the whole racist controversy we reported about that got a lot of attention last week. An Arab-American group says that depicting an Arab walking through the desert with a camel is racist. Additionally the Arabs are not in the race between the Badlanders, Show Girls and Cowboys. Now Coke put the Arab in the race. His name is Vincent de Fairweather, the 1920s silent film star of "The Kalaharian." It turns out he had a cooler of Coke from craft service all along.
Coke even set up a Tumbler page for Vincent de Fairweather.
This is a very funny move from Coca-Cola. Watch the Coke Chase - The Last Laugh video below. The voting for the ending of the Coke Chase Super Bowl 2013 Ad is still open.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home.

The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
