To give labourers in the UAE a few extra minutes of happiness, Coca-Cola created the Hello Happiness Phone Booth -- a special phone booth that accepts Coca-Cola bottle caps instead of coins for a free 3-minute international phone call, helping them connect with their families back home more often.

It's a real problem and Coke solved it nicely. If only for a short time.

Currency-based ideas have become boring and unoriginal.

And this is a another campaign made for awards not for sales. Why to choose a target audience without money to call home?

Its very important to anchor a campaign on strong consumers' research and the insight uncover by Coca-Cola is deep and discerning.
This ad idea is a social campaign, and it can be spread around communities of migrate workers anywhere in this world.

you've bolted an idea on, its an ad for phone network not coke. If phones with phone credit came out of the machine it would maybe just about work. Apart from that it just shoes how shit their life is and how futile a fkng coke really is to them.
