Andy Warhol's black-and-white 6' tall painting of a Coca-Cola bottle up for auction at Christie's New York, expected to fetch $40 mil or more.

According to Andy, “[w]hat’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you can know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke … All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it … and you know it.”
