Talking about advertising standards on decline, the corporate companies will now do anything to attract business. In spite of teh fact that Coca-cola is hugely popular among the children, it is disgusting that they have used such low means to attract children on Facebook.

Facebook promotion for Dr Pepper, a part of the Coca-Cola drinks range, posted a reference to an explicit pornographic film on the 'wall' of a minor girl. The users allowed the company to hijack their Facebook status box as part of the promotion, posting embarrassing messages under their names. More than 160,000 people had signed up for the hoax statuses that included, "Lost my special blankie. How will I go sleepies?" and "What's wrong with peeing in the shower?"

But the marketing drive went awry when a parent complained that her 14-year-old daughter's hijacked status claimed that she had watched a hardcore pornographic film that is notorious for the obscene practices it depicts.

How low can these companies get?? :angry: :angry: :angry:
