SHOULD we be embarrassed? The people marketing Coca-Cola don't think we're sophisticated enough to handle an advert that includes a same-sex marriage scene.

 In a European-wide TV campaign called 'Reasons to Believe', the last scene airing in most countries shows a male gay couple getting married -- but in Ireland this has been replaced by an inter-racial couple.

The reason? According to the Coke guys, it's because same-sex marriage isn't legal yet in Ireland, ergo they can't show it on the telly.
