Coca-Cola: New grip bottle

Challenge: Let people know about how the new Coca-Cola Grip Bottle has a better grip for holding. Solution: Posters printed on Velcro were placed in bus shelters in Paris to make people interact with the grip.
Results: People literally hooked to the campaign. On the whole, a 3.8% brand volume growth in France compared to 2007.

my favorite type of "advertising" one tat gets people to be part of the message/ad

Always try to be unique even when forced to conform.

I would hate this poster if my clothes got stuck at it.

I'm really curious how sticky this is. It all stands or falls with that. I'd be pissed of it either damages my cloths or leaves it sticky. If not, bravo!

Funny idea but I'm not certain that I would purchase this based on gripping action, especially if an article of my clothing were snagged on the velcro.

I like the ad. If I got stuck to it I would think it were quite funny. Although, I don't know how well a new grip on the bottle works as a differentiating factor.

it gets noticed all right, but it's doubtful that the reaction is positive. Just because it's smart doesn't mean that it's a good idea. I'd be pissed off if my clothes get ruined because of a dumb velcro poster, wouldn't you? I'll be damned if i don't go and get a Pepsi. Overall an original idea, but it could only create negative attitude toward the product. Besides, it'd be more relevant with clothing, a new backpack strapping system or a velcro ad, than a new Coke bottle design, somehow it just doesn't add up.
