Super Bowl Ad Enrages Poker Players
February 6, 2022
Coca-Cola angered and confused poker players around the Country last Sunday when they chose to feature former Senator Bill Frist in one of their multimillion dollar Super Bowl ads. Right-wing conservative Frist was shown in the commercial making nice with left-wing political pundit James Carville, as they both enjoyed refreshing Cokes.

Coca-Cola's decision to showcase Frist - the man most poker players hate and basically blame for the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act - is bizarre and quite surprising. However, the result of their decision wasn't surprising in the least, as poker forums went crazy almost immediately afterwards, with many posters encouraging their fellow poker players to drink more Pepsi and some even demanding an outright ban on all Coca-Cola products. Needless to say, this is probably not the reaction Coca-Cola was looking for.
