I Can Buy the World a Coke

But not Jesus.

Coke is suing an Italian film company for having Jesus take a swig of Coke in the yet to be released film7 Km from Gerusalemme” (Seven Kilometers From Jerusalem). The film is set in modern day Jerusalem and Jesus is out for a stroll in the desert and wants to quench his thirst with a tasty Coke. That scene will never see the light of day if Coke has their way. Coke said the scene would probably give the soda a bad image. A spokeswoman said, "We are not interested in this kind of product placement."

Sorry Jesus maybe you can have a Pepsi.
