Surprising numbers of you were fooled (and a few of you weren't) by our story claiming that Van Coke Kartel lead singer Francois Van Coke was being sued by the Coca-Cola Company over his use of the name Van Coke. But more surprising was that we managed to punk the man himself. Francois himself was briefly duped this morning when his publicity people and bassist Wynand played along with the prank by calling him to say that the police had asked for his address and were on their way to serve him with papers!Many of you expressed your loyalty to local musicians by swearing never to drink Coke again, or offering to switch to Pepsi. The truth is, it’s April 1st, and Coke is NOT sueing Francois. However the truth is stranger than fiction, it seems! Fact: South African musicians playing Coke Fest are, for the most part, not being paid to appear, but are mostly doing the gig in exchange for publicity. Yes, the best way to fool people is still mix lies, and the truth – just ask your friendly Member of Parliament if you don’t believe us.
