Lending a smidgeon of truth to some rumblings that we heard in Cannes, British rock mag NME reports
that White Stripes front man Jack White has been commissioned to write a jingle
for Coca-Cola that would could be Generation Y's "I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke." In White's home town,
the Detroit Free Press admits
that the band's peppermint stripe attire would work well with the
cola's world-famous brand, but also recalls White's fondness for misleading the media (the rocker publicly
identifies White Stripes drummer Meg White as his sister, though the two are actually ex-spouses).
