Coca-Cola kicks off National Hispanic Heritage Month (which runs from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15) with a line of temporary-tattoo cans, targeted to Hispanic and Latino Americans.

After exercising your sharp deduction skills, you peel the sticker off, place it on your person and use the moisture from the (hopefully cold) can to affix the name onto your skin.
