Coca-Cola's Probably Regretting Sponsoring Argentina's Women's Soccer Team

Pictured above are members of Argentina’s olympic soccer team, celebrating their trip to the Olympics in Beijing. Although they’re not the first Olympic team to strike this tasteless pose, they are the first to do so while wearing their corporate sponsor’s name on their jerseys.

Oddly enough, one of the other teams that posed for a picture while making the “slanty-eyed” face did so for an actual ad for a Spanish courier company. This time, it’s not an ad, and Coca-Cola’s probably not going to be happy with this association. The photo was published August 5th, but so far, we haven’t heard anything from Coke.
