Coca-Cola: The Friendship Machine

Case video:

Brief: The Coca-Cola Friendship Machine was born to make all the friends of Latin America celebrate Friend’s Day in a very special way.

Creative Execution: For everyone to enjoy a Coke with their friends and take advantage of the special 2 for 1 Coke offer, friends had to cooperate with each other to insert the money into the machine slot.
Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective. To enjoy and share the 2 for 1 Coke offer, this 3.5 meter tall vending machine required the direct interaction of the friends with the huge structure.

Results: Thousands of friends in 7 countries of Latin America interacted directly with Coke’s special vending machine to celebrate Friend’s Day. 800 Cokes were sold in 9 hours. That’s 1075% more sales than with a regular vending machine. Thousands of comments on blogs and social networks around the world. With friendship as the must to make it possible.

Was Coke not supposed to make you bigger, instead of taller?
