Warren Buffett Could Buy the World a Coke -- But You'll Have to Settle for a Jingle Instead

Company's Most Famous Shareholder Plays Iconic Jingle on Ukulele

By Published on .

Billionaire Warren Buffett probably has enough money to buy the world a Coke. But fans of the soda are going to have to settle for a song instead. Mr. Buffett, whose Berkshire Hathaway is The Coca-Cola Company's largest single shareowner, recently performed a version of the 1971 classic jingle "I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke," while playing a ukulele.

The company released the video on Wednesday as part of its shareholder meeting festivities. At the event, Mr. Buffett was interviewed on stage by Coca-Cola CEO Muhtar Kent. During the exchange, Mr. Buffett quipped that "in the last 30 years, one quarter of all of the calories I have consumed have come from Coca-Cola." He is an especially big fan of Cherry Coke.
