Nick Saban’s Coke bottle ‘tells’ its sad, redemptive story in funny video

That’s the Coke bottle as a kid (right).

Every news conference in sports has one thing in common: a bottle or two of some beverage on the podium, dais or table where a coach or player answers questions.

Alabama football fans know that when coach Nick Saban speaks, there is a Coca-Cola bottle next to him. It’s such a common scene that CBS Sports’ Tom Fornelli “interviewed” the Coke bottle in 2015., which produces SEC Shorts videos, went a step further: they made a “documentary” about the Coca-Cola bottle’s journey through the years.

It’s clever.
