It’s the international break and news isn’t exactly bursting out of the woodwork to write about, but this just happened and I’m not going to beat around the bush about it:
THERE ARE COKE ZERO CANS IN BELGIUM THAT HAVE JAN VERTONGHEN’S FACE ON THEM AND I HAVE A LOT OF QUESTIONS.
(Warning: there appears to be a Belgian speaking a bit of foul language in that video, so it’s probably ever-so-slightly NSFW.)

THIS. CHANGES. EVERYTHING.
I can’t tell from this video whose Instagram feed this story was ripped from. I’d like to think it was Toby Alderweireld and he’s just telling the world that Jan is the GOAT. But on the other hand, I just can’t imagine Toby using that kind of language, so let’s just say that it’s Eden Hazard instead. That feels more appropriate.
A quick Google tells me that in 2014 there was a special Coke can in Belgium for each national team member, and one can surmise that the same thing is in place for this year’s World Cup. Were the cans for this meal specially chosen? Vertonghen seems pretty nonplussed about the whole thing, but Mousa Dembele certainly seems to be enjoying drinking out of his Vertongh-can.
And most importantly, HOW CAN I GET ONE? My kingdom for whoever can express-ship me one of these cans. And I don’t even LIKE Coke Zero.
