Charles Barkley

CelebriGum is thrilled to announce its first product placement deal with a major corporation!  

Okay, it's not exactly a deal yet, but I'm hoping that by highlighting what appears to be a bottle of Diet Coke held by Charles Barkley, I'll inspire the fine people at Coca-Cola to get on board.  For an offer somewhere in the mid-seven figure range, I'd consider renaming this website "Coca-Cola Presents CelebriGum."

Or, if that's too much of a commitment, ten bucks to cover CelebriGum's domain registration fee for the year would be great.


  1. As legal counsel on behalf of the Coca Cola Corporation, its subsidiaries, local Coca Cola bottlers, and affiliates, I must warn you to immediately cease the unauthorized use of our name, trademark, products, and any future product merchandising, or face the severest of criminal penalties.

    Dear Karl,
    Good luck proving from the grainy image above that Charles Barkley isn't, in fact, simply preparing to lob a Molotov Cocktail prepared using a bottle of indeterminate origin. And from a liability standpoint, I hope for Coca-Cola's sake that they are not found to be implicated in any way in this illegal act of domestic terrorism.
    Warmest regards,
    Abner Malady, attorney at lunch

    And the penalty would be what, having to drink the afore mentioned product?

  4. I'm just glad CelebriGum can afford a large team of pricey lawyers. Sounds like this could get ugly.

  5. I'm more of a Pepsi man, so what do I care?
