The Magic of Coca -Cola, as Seen by Andy Warhol

This is one of my favorite quotes from anyone; it's from Warhol's 1975 book, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol.

What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.

I love this. I think a few years back there used to be a Starbucks blog which was just photos of celebs with their Starbucks drink. It is reminiscent of the same idea - Everyone loves Coca Cola. Andy Warhol was ahead of his time. :)
