John Chow Cola

The Official Blogger Drink

John Chow, Inc., publisher of John Chow dot Com and The Coca-Cola Company, maker of the number 1 selling soft drink in the world, has entered into a licensing agreement to produce John Chow Cola, The Official Blogger Drink.

When bloggers drink John Chow Cola, post ideas will “pop” into their heads because of the drink’s Liquid Neuro Enhancers. A blogger will never get writer’s block again if he drinks John Chow Cola.

“John Chow Cola taps into a market The Coca-Cola Company has been trying to reach for years without much success. By partnering the world’s best known blogger with the world’s number 1 brand, we’re sure John Chow Cola will become one of the top selling Coca-Cola products. John Chow Cola tastes great and offers increased productivity for bloggers.”

Neville Isdell – Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, The Coca-Cola Company

John Chow Cola will ship in cans for the North American market. Markets outside North American will receive John Chow Cola in the classic Coke bottle. A Diet John Chow Cola will shortly follow.

Made with Liquid Neuro Enhancers

John Chow Cola is the first drink in the world to use Liquid Neuro Enhancers (LNE). A technology that took The Coca-Cola Company over ten years to develop. Unlike a sport drinks that only enhance physical performance, the LNE used in John Chow Cola enhances the brain’s ability to come up with new blog post ideas. One drink is all it takes to get a sugar rush of ideas pouring in.

With over 120 million bloggers on the Internet and 175,000 joining everyday, the market for John Chow Cola is huge and untapped. Being first to market means John Chow Cola will be The Official Blogger Drink.

So much for the Pepsi Challenge!

Who needs Red Bull when you can have John Chow Cola!? Can I do a review on it?

Hafiz Dhanani March 31, 2008 at 6:43 pm

Happy April Fools! :twisted:

Sava April 1, 2008 at 8:22 am

totally agree with you :D

Robert April 1, 2008 at 9:58 am

Interesting. I wonder, however, if John would run into legal problems with Coca Cola with this post.

Syed Balkhi April 2, 2008 at 1:44 pm

I don’t think he would .. If anything Coca Cola got more free advertisement. Like they need it.

Nicholas James April 3, 2008 at 11:00 am

Shame it was posted early.

mr nice guy March 31, 2008 at 7:24 pm

Hahaha I think there would be John Cow Pepsi in the future..lol
:grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

Chris Jacobson March 31, 2008 at 9:18 pm

Hey John, April 1st is tomorrow!

Nicholas James April 4, 2008 at 4:56 pm

John got a little eager at 23.59 ;)

Not John Chow April 1, 2008 at 7:50 am

I was working on a deal with Pepsi for “Not John Chow Cola” but cancelled the plans when I heard that John Chow was killed by a Panda!

Check it out: http://www.notjohnchow.com/john-chow-killed-by-panda/

DeboHobo April 1, 2008 at 5:42 am

This has got to be one of the better April Fool’s jokes I”ve seen. Very similar to the great Swiss Spaghetti Harvest of 1957.

LOL JOHN!!!!! :razz:

Ed Lau March 31, 2008 at 6:04 pm

This tastes like pandas!

BlogTalks April 1, 2008 at 12:14 am

That’s because it uses real Panda extract :shock:

Not John Chow April 12, 2008 at 9:07 am

I heard it was made with 100% pasturized angry panda juice!

Teresa March 31, 2008 at 6:07 pm

I want some!!!!!

mr nice guy March 31, 2008 at 7:26 pm

I would definitely taste this John Chow Cola as soon as it arrives in Asia hahaha…but april fool fever is here now guys beware!! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Tyler Ingram March 31, 2008 at 6:07 pm

Shouldn’t this be posted on April 1st?

Jeff Kee March 31, 2008 at 6:10 pm

maybe it’s not a hoax???

Shane March 31, 2008 at 6:20 pm

Coca-cola doesn’t do co-branding deals with their flagship. It’s just John experimenting or it’s an Apr 1st setup.

Joel March 31, 2008 at 8:24 pm

Hope Coca Cola doesnt sue John Chow :shock:

Jeff Kee March 31, 2008 at 8:56 pm

Yes, I know that, I was joking. I actually did the damn photoshop work.

David Lin March 31, 2008 at 6:08 pm

Wow sweet. Nice job John!

sebastiano March 31, 2008 at 6:10 pm

darnit, I’m more of a pepsi guy, but heck send em to italy and i’ll have em

Affiliate Confession March 31, 2008 at 6:12 pm

Yea, some good Photoshoppin’ on the bottle there, if we could only believe it.

adar March 31, 2008 at 6:12 pm

Don’t know if this a joke or not but i still want one. :lol:

geomark March 31, 2008 at 6:16 pm

The concept is that an April fool’s joke needs to be believable. This is not. So it’s not even slightly amusing. Posting it a day early, oh, tricky.

Terry Tay March 31, 2008 at 7:44 pm

Sometimes newspapers have some good April Fools jokes that fool a lot of people and cause a big stir. We’ll see what this year has in store.
~Terry

Joe March 31, 2008 at 8:22 pm

Sounds like Geo’s been drinking the newly released “Brute Beer- After one sip, you become instantly annoying on other people’s blogs!”

iPhone in Canada March 31, 2008 at 6:18 pm

Sweet, free pop! :)

Bob Buskirk March 31, 2008 at 6:18 pm

It’s some good stuff, John already sent me a case

Terry Tay March 31, 2008 at 7:41 pm

Would you like some Terry Tay Tators?

:-D

Annie March 31, 2008 at 6:19 pm

very creative!!

Michael Kwan March 31, 2008 at 6:20 pm

Eight ounce bottle? That’s so not enough sugar for the root of all evil.

Paul March 31, 2008 at 6:23 pm

Niceeeee. Send me a free bottle please!

Affiliate Confession March 31, 2008 at 7:49 pm

Just a bottle? I want a case!

Arjun R. March 31, 2008 at 6:31 pm

If this is true…Count Me In.

Nicholas James April 4, 2008 at 4:58 pm

c’mon it the april fools joke :razz:

James March 31, 2008 at 6:33 pm

Bit early. :)

Bill March 31, 2008 at 6:36 pm

Yep. Screwed up the timestamp again. :twisted:

Alvin Phang March 31, 2008 at 6:39 pm

Congrats John :grin:

Vizion March 31, 2008 at 6:41 pm

Sounds awesome – i’ll take a pack!

Wade March 31, 2008 at 6:50 pm

Would be awesome to see, even though I don’t drink pop, I may take it up.

sir jorge March 31, 2008 at 6:51 pm

I don’t believe this for one moment.
It’s march 31st, but you’re putting t his on early.

Dwayne March 31, 2008 at 6:53 pm

Will the additive make me grow hair so that I can have a flat top like you also? If so send me two 6 packs.

Punny Money March 31, 2008 at 6:58 pm

I’ll take some! Though if this turns out to be an April Fools joke, I’ll gladly settle for a 2 liter of Diet Coke to go with this rum.

Tom March 31, 2008 at 6:59 pm

Oh boy what a great April Fools joke, even better than ProBlogger’s Tweet for pay post. Ok all you professional bloggers out there, it was cute once, let’s move along!

MMMmmmm…. That John Chow Cola just makes my mouth go “more! more!”

What’s Next?

Zac Johnson Mt. Dew?

Funny… Happy April 1.

Brian Vaughan March 31, 2008 at 7:02 pm

Ahh I love April Fools :)

John March 31, 2008 at 7:03 pm

“The Icon” for “The Web Icon”…cliche’ that works. Thanks for promoting idea generation.

Fat Tony69 March 31, 2008 at 7:03 pm

Early April Fools.

Jen @ JenuineJen March 31, 2008 at 7:03 pm

Cool! I’m in Atlanta and Coke is not just “the real thing” it is the only thing to drink here. Congrats on your marketing opportunity, John!

The Coolest Gifts March 31, 2008 at 7:05 pm

I expected better from you today, John. Still holding out hope…

Sha March 31, 2008 at 7:09 pm

Well, it looks like it worked because some people are seriously debating as to whether it’s true or not, ha.

Nick March 31, 2008 at 7:11 pm

Well, it might be cool if it is/were true, but like others have already said, I have a sneaky suspicion that this post is meant for tomorrow and the great Chow is trying to make fools of all of us :D. You can go ahead and send me some free soda (or traffic) anyways John.

Jason March 31, 2008 at 7:16 pm

Good one. :cool:

king kong March 31, 2008 at 7:20 pm

Dave March 31, 2008 at 7:31 pm

I love Coke.

Hook it up John!

Krishna March 31, 2008 at 7:33 pm

nice gag :)

Cartoon Blogger March 31, 2008 at 7:34 pm

That’s sweet.

Terry Tay March 31, 2008 at 7:38 pm

I have a feeling there is going to be 10,000 comments on here by the end of April fools :razz: Posting a day early is kind of sneaky though.

My Terry Tay Tators deal is in the works as well, so perhaps people can wash them down with a John Chow Cola.
~Terry

Jeffry Degrande March 31, 2008 at 7:45 pm

Preferred Tim Ferris’ joke but I like the modifications to that bottle picture.

SimplyWebtastic March 31, 2008 at 7:45 pm

Gag or no gag, very creative! Great job on the Coke labels!

Earning a Living Online March 31, 2008 at 7:48 pm

John, absolutely Genius Post, no wonder you are so well read by the masses. I think this is your best post yet, I think I’m going to buy stock in Coca-Cola now. :wink:

mr nice guy March 31, 2008 at 9:48 pm

He won’t become the controversial JOHN CHOW without his head making gimmicks and the so-called special opps in social marketing, much more it’s april fools month hahaha. The Great John Chow! Wheeww

Stephen March 31, 2008 at 7:48 pm

If it was really John Chow Cola, it would be DIET…because that’s all he drinks! :lol:

I call Shenanigans! :D

Michael Kwan March 31, 2008 at 8:28 pm

And where are the pandas?

Sherry March 31, 2008 at 7:49 pm

You bet I want John Chow Cola!! Sound sweet too :)

Sherry March 31, 2008 at 7:51 pm

You bet I want John Chow Cola! When will I get it? :)

Sherry March 31, 2008 at 7:55 pm

Meh, not a very good prank this year ;)

Sherry March 31, 2008 at 7:58 pm

weird, I already submit comment a few nothing. Nothing show up. Yes I want one of john chow cola.

betshopboy March 31, 2008 at 8:35 pm

You seemed desperately thirsty! I suggest you get yourself the Coca Cola classic before you die of thirst waiting for “John Chow Cola”.

Rekzai March 31, 2008 at 7:59 pm

Send me a case please!!! I need some post ideas.

Mayank Rocks March 31, 2008 at 8:12 pm

I want one. I want one! :mrgreen:

D-Skrill March 31, 2008 at 8:20 pm

Coca Cola Classic is my favorite.
Although if your John Chow Cola Is going back to the original formula I want a truckload :twisted:
You guys remember the original formula right. just remove cola from the name :twisted: :twisted:

Happy Fools day :lol:

Jeff Kee March 31, 2008 at 9:53 pm

That would be me. :)

Jason March 31, 2008 at 8:26 pm

The fact that some people aren’t sure whether or not this is true….is very sad….seriously, lol.

betshopboy March 31, 2008 at 8:31 pm

Nice try!

Happy April fool’s day!

Simon Lau March 31, 2008 at 8:34 pm

Hahah nice one!

Minal March 31, 2008 at 8:43 pm

I would have believed it a April Fool joke had JC posted a title like
‘John Chow – The Official President 2009-2014′

:lol:

Jake Cohen March 31, 2008 at 8:45 pm

This would actually be a very good idea if it weren’t April Fools. You are right, this really is a heavily untapped market. I for one would sure by the John Chow Cola’s. Seriously John, you should actually go talk to Coca-Cola about this, you might have something here.

Career Quips March 31, 2008 at 8:51 pm

:grin:
Never hard of another more ingenious April Fool Prank!
Good one John!

InvestorBlogger March 31, 2008 at 8:53 pm

Swallowing John Chow cola just seems kinda wrong somehow…. :wink:

car345.com March 31, 2008 at 9:13 pm

Thiago Prado March 31, 2008 at 9:22 pm

bendz March 31, 2008 at 10:11 pm

I think John is better at talking shit in video than writing about it in his blog.

Vitaliy March 31, 2008 at 10:11 pm

mike huang March 31, 2008 at 10:58 pm

Did mr nice guy mention there will be a “JOHN COW” drink instead of CHOW? :) Great April’s Fools!

-Mike

Lisa March 31, 2008 at 11:16 pm

Maybe you can send some of these people a bottle of “Lighten Up” to go with their John Chow Cola :)

Infogle March 31, 2008 at 11:37 pm

another viral idea to popularize your blog… good going for your thoughts

sean March 31, 2008 at 11:43 pm

I’d love to hold the John Chow Cola can in my hand…

Forensic April 1, 2008 at 1:46 am

If the original cola contained cocaine, can we ask what your ‘secret’ ingredient is???

Robert April 1, 2008 at 2:18 am

This actually might happen in the future!! HAHA

The Manager April 1, 2008 at 2:25 am

Hannah April 1, 2008 at 4:42 am

I love the number of people here who actually believe this is real….

Forensic April 1, 2008 at 5:06 am

Funnily enough, if John really were to market his own brand of cola then it would probably sell!

Pascoa April 1, 2008 at 6:03 am

I can order John Chow Cola only today? Or its possible order another day?

David Chew April 1, 2008 at 6:17 am

Interesting and looks very real.

You’re teaming up with the world’s best brand – Coca Cola. We’re so proud of you. I’m a Coca Cola lover, and I can’t wait to get two JohnChow Cola, one for me to taste, and the other one for collection!

Exploring Blogosphere April 2, 2008 at 12:19 am

haha, nice Cola, and good laugh :-)

ismabera April 2, 2008 at 4:35 am

Uf, I hope I am not too late to get free :cool: John Chow Cola. I hope you will send me in :?: Slovenia, where I am at this moment

jimsvarkey April 2, 2008 at 6:57 am

The photoshop work is awesome :cool:

Rahman Alwi April 2, 2008 at 7:22 am

Wow…
John you could really get in trouble if Coca cola is pissed off with this claims. I have nothing against this, but when I first read it, it looks real. I almost blogged about IT!!!!!!! :mrgreen:

But really… especially in country like US and Canada, this could lead to serious legal battle. Furthermore, you are famous John and it makes you very loud.

John Chow April 2, 2008 at 7:41 am

It would be super cool for Coke to sue me over this post. Imagine the amount of press I would get! :twisted:

John Simpson April 2, 2008 at 10:45 am

OK. I have to admit that the pics were great. Even though I know the concept is a fake, I am still compelled to respond. Sure. I’ll be “waiting” for my 6-pack. ;)

goalcentre.com April 2, 2008 at 1:50 pm

Seriously, when i first saw the post, i thought it was real and never thought it was April Fool’s joke. I even send this post to a few of my friends to tell them, look at what John Chow had done. He did a Cola with Coke! How foolish i was! :twisted: :twisted:

Tasvir Khalili April 2, 2008 at 4:17 pm

yea, free case of coke…what its fake…why man :sad:

danandmarsh April 2, 2008 at 4:50 pm

heck I’ll comment for a free 6 pack(even though I prefer pepsi!! Ah, so it was an April fools joke, oh my!!

Kn10 April 2, 2008 at 8:57 pm

April Fools? I thought it was real. There are actually many places where you can get drinks branded with your own brand. I see alot of resturants sell beer with their own logo on it.

Mike April 6, 2008 at 9:02 pm

Neuro enhancement is right up my ally. Too bad its just an april fool’s joke.

Daw Hosting Blog April 9, 2008 at 2:40 pm

Do it for Pepsi next year ;) To be honest I don’t make difference :) both taste almost the same… especially with many ice in there. Pepsi pays more… so you’re doing this for them next year ;)

Daw Hosting Blog April 9, 2008 at 2:42 pm

Pepsi pays more. Do one for them next year :wink:

David Cheong April 16, 2008 at 10:50 am

eh.. is available in Asia yet? John send me one for souvenir free :)
