A Toast to Disney and Ovitz from Coca-Cola bottle

Michael Ovitz became the President of The Walt Disney Company in October 1995. The Coca-Cola Company prepared a special bottle featuring Mickey Mouse holding a bottle of Coca-Cola. The caption reads "A Toast To Disney & Ovtiz From Coca-Cola"  in red. October 3, 1995 in white text appears on the neck of the bottle.

Backside of the bottle has the Coca-Cola CLASSIC trademark. No UPC. No GAN.

However, the bottle was never released and reportedly most of the bottles were destroyed.

In the 1999 Ad Age Advertising Century, Michael Ovitz was No. 89 of the Top 100 people. Co-founder of Creative Artists Agency (CAA) Ovitz signed The Coca-Cola Company as a customer in 1991 and in 1993 launched the Always Coca-Cola campaign with the CG-animated Polar Bear commercials.

After 30 Years at CAA, Michael Ortiz left to join Disney as President but he only lasted 15 months.

The Coca-Cola Company has had a long history with The Walt Disney Company. When Disneyland opened in Anaheim, California in 1955, Coca-Cola Refreshment Corner at the end of Main Street was one of the inaugural restaurants. The two companies continued their partnership for over 6 decades as Coca-Cola being the beverage provider for Disney's theme parks and resorts worldwide with the exception of the Shanghai location.
