56. It's not arrogance--that's not what a D-I-E-T Coke can looks like, EITHER.
C-O-K-E routinely changes up their designs, so does P-E-P-S-I. They do holiday themes, patriotic themes, all sorts of eye-catching graphics.

It takes a tenth of a second to look and read. And it doesn't take an Einstein to read a four letter word.

A first grader could manage it.
