Warren Buffett the new face of Coca-Cola

CHINA -- When you open happiness in China, prepare to come face-to-face with the world's richest man.

Warren Buffett is the new face of Coca-Cola. Literally. A cartoon likeness of the Berkshire Hathaway CEO is now appearing on cans of Cherry Coke in China.

Buffett is worth more than 74 billion dollars and doesn't need the endorsement money. He's doing it for free!

The 86-year-old is just a longtime lover of the drink. He claims drinking five Cokes a day is keeping him young.

But the investor likely will cash-in on the deal. His company is Coca-Cola's largest single shareholder.
