say hello to Elliot
The Coca Cola guy is a staggering 18m tall (16m in Joburg) and weighs just over ±27 tons. The man wears a whopping 4200 empty Coke crates (2500 in Joburg) and according to sources listed below, they will all be recycled when taken down. I think the reason for the extra crates is because in Cape Town, Elliot is sitting down rather than standing up. I spoke to the chap in-charge (Porky) and he said the Coca Cola man will be here for a full year, because they want the celebrations to continue long after the World Cup. It is situated at the V&A Waterfront at the "sea" entrance to the residential marina.
