Share This Amazing Fake Coca-Cola Ad Reminding The Company About Its Support Of Slave Labor In Qatar

For some reason, FIFA still has not corrected the mistake they made when they awarded the 2022 World Cup to Qatar. In the meantime, unspeakable human rights abuses have occurred in the Arab nation, including the continued use of slave labor to build stadiums. All told, this World Cup will cost thousands of actual human lives. We've called on FIFA to strip Qatar of the World Cup before it's too late, so far to no avail.
The best way for a change to actually occur is for the event's sponsors to drop out. Without money, there is no tournament. Coca-Cola, which has enjoyed an awful lot of nice free press recently thanks to the final season of "Mad Men," is one of those sponsors. Why haven't they dropped out yet? We're not sure. They've "expressed concern" over Qatar's abuse of their migrant workers, and done little else. But one reddit user wants us to remember what we're supporting every time we buy a Coke, and what Coke is supporting every single moment they continue to publicly back FIFA. Check this out:
It's an excellent take off on Coke's classic logo. Simple, yet powerful. We love it.
Curiously, the user who created this ad has since deleted their account so we can't give credit where it's due. Conspiracy much? Regardless, share this ad. Tweet it, Facebook it, MySpace it. Doing so could literally save lives, with the added bonus of potentially removing Sepp Blatter from his position as president of FIFA. That guy really, really sucks.
