Coke Trademark Application Points to Launch of Entertainment Destination
Right Here Now did a bit of digging through the trademark database (not exactly something we'd enjoy doing) and found a newly-filed trademark from Coke that involves the image of two leaves which form the shape of the Coke bottle and which will be used for what seems to be a public Coke branded entertainment, cultural and sporting destination featuring Coke memorabilia. Not that this is entirely surprising as brand are seeking new ways to associate their brands and create connections with consumers in a manner other than traditional advertising. The trademark application also makes mention of of use in a public aquarium indicating one possible site Coke may sponsor or create on its own.
UPDATE: Well call us stupid. A commenter tell us the trademark thing is old news, writing, "The new World of Coke Museum is being built next door to the Georgia Aquarium. The combined entertainment zone will be called Pemberton Place after the founder of Coca-Cola, John C. Pemberton. This logo, and the name Pemberton Place, are already in use around the construction site and the Aquarium."
