Pepsi, anyone?

Jesus drinks Coca Cola? Apparently. In a scene in the film "Seven Kilometers From Jerusalem," by Claudio Malaponti, Jesus drinks the soft drink during a dusty Jeep ride through the desert.

And this has company officials of Coke up in arms. They are adamant that the scene portrays the soda-maker in a negative light. "We are not interested in this kind of product placement," a spokeswoman for the company told the paper.

I guess Coke considers the affiliation with Christianity bad publicity. Pepsi, anyone?
