Stuntman Lee Morrison, who has been with the 007 team for many years, recently disclosed Coca-Cola as one of the secrets to pulling off motorcycle stunts. “I’ve been spraying Coca-Cola on slippery surfaces for a very long time,” says Morrison. The beverage helps make roads sticky for extra traction while maintaining a clear appearance: “Coca-Cola makes things look very clean after it washes off.” While many bike scenes are often considered simple stunts, the one in No Time to Die, required a whopping 8,400 gallons of Coke to be poured over the roadways of Matera, Italy. The film’s budget is set at $250M USD, so it seems the cost of all that spilled soda may just be a drop in the bucket for the project afterall.
No Time to Die is expected to hit theaters on April 2, 2021.
