Two things: one, the rich really are different. And two, Coca-Cola had its annual shareholder meeting today.

At the meeting, a Coke shareholder named Warren Buffett sang the soda giant’s jingle “I’d like to Buy the World a Coke” while playing the ukulele, which you can watch below:    

How great is that? Buffett was piped in via video, by the way—he wasn’t live.

Buffett’s own annual shareholder meeting for his holding company Berkshire Hathaway is this weekend in Omaha.

Get this: 50,000 are expected to show up. Oracle of Omaha, indeed.
