“Always Real, Always Harlem” (Coca-Cola slogan)

"Always Real” has been a Coca-Cola slogan since 1993. “Always Real, Always Harlem” has been a Coca-Cola advertisement on some Harlem stores since at least 2004.

“Always Harlem, Always Real” – Nothing screams legitimacy more than blackness.  That this seems to be part of a Coca-Cola ad would undermine that legitimacy… if we weren’t so concerned with the whole irony thing.  Just remember:  No matter how tempting it may be… never, ever perform in Harlem.  Pleasant bonus:  When your fans resort to the acronym, they’ll sound like an army of seals.  (photo from lisawhiteman.com)
