Is it the dawning of the ‘a-coke-alypse’?

Finnish Eurovision Song Contest winners Lordi are set to have a cola named after them.

The band’s leader Mr Lordi has designed labels featuring the five members of the band in their monster masks, and one featuring the entire band.

Explaining the decision to market Lordi Cola, spokesperson for drinks maker Olvi Group, Ritva Sinisalo told BBC News: “The Lordi phenomenon has brought the whole nation together.”
