I can honestly say it's pretty blatant. Each is very inspiring and very DIY, the only difference is one is associating youth and freedom with a soft drink!! I definitely think you have a case. I also think that if Coca Cola would've asked maybe there wouldn't be a problem. But, as I have always seen, once a truly novel idea is out there, it is taken and reshaped, repackaged, and marketed and sold and milked for all that it's worth. Remember the grunge music movement?? Oh yeah...
