What happens when a Pepsi delivery guy and a Coke delivery guy cross paths at Wal-Mart in Pennsylvania?
The Coke guy gets punched in the face.
The two deliverymen were “apparently bickering back and forth” while unloading their wares at the Indiana County store, police said. When the Coke deliveryman left the store, his counterpart allegedly punched him in the face three times, breaking his nose and giving him a black eye, police said.
No charges have been filed, but police characterized the incident as a misdemeanor simple assault.
That’s taking product competition to a whole new level!
A reenactment of this event would make an awesome commercial – a Pepsi commercial, of course.
