Coca-Cola: Happiness Refill

This never before seen Coke machine is being installed in the Coca-Cola Concept Store on Copacabana beach, in Rio de Janeiro. The Happiness Refill appears to be a modern-looking Soda Machine, but it isn't. Instead of a cup, the consumer presses his mobile phone against the tap to receive data credits for free internet navigation (IMs, Facebook, Twitter, websites, etc) on a exclusive Coca Cola mobile browser. In Brazil, free wi-fi spots are not common, and most young people have pre-paid phones. This innovation was created by an integration of three of Ogilvy's offices (Sao Paulo, Rio and Recife) and various disciplines (design, digital, mobile, advertising and activation). It provides a new way for the brand to reach out to a generation that wants to be connected every breathing minute of the day. After all, for young people, happiness means being connected.

Advertising Agency: Ogilvy & Mather, Brazil

Sounds like it'll work to get Coke in front of more eyeballs more of the time.

Sorry, but I'm not loading a coca cola browser onto my phone to get a few free minutes of internet. And judging by the setting, I suspect the targets are affluent enough they won't go through the hassle either.

Am I the only one who is seeing a giant box glove?

It looks dead. It smells dead. Yet it's moving around... That's interesting.
