Touching. Very nice stunt!

Brilliant ideas here, first thing that came to mind is why did they not reach out to children? The emotions from people that know Santa isn't real and receiving things they no longer desire takes away potential emotional appeal, whereas seeing little kids receive these things that they recently desired and weren't able to receive would have been extremely heart warming and touching. Very great ideas and production though, music was on point, acting was great too.

Children? Isn't that already done every year?
I think the idea here is finding old letters and granting the wishes years later, no?

Beautiful concept and nicely executed. Perfect example of corporate social responsibility.

I liked the concept at the start, but the exaggerated cheesiness and blatant coke insert into the end of the case film, kinda ruined it for me.

Great santa casting though.

Quite really.

crap.
they belive in coke not santa.
in the beginning they wrote about children all over the world. so why didn't they took (or even showed) one of them, instead of choosing suburb us-americans.
i have seen better heart touching stuff than this.

Hamfisted Coke ending or not, it made me tear up. Thanks Ogilvy, I do believe in great ideas!

The idea is very nice and I sat through the case study with a smile.

Although I wonder where the brand comes in. Okay, you did the good work and won a lion in Cannes, but strengthening Coke's position as a christmas product doesn't really reach out? One might say that a brand like Coca Cola doesn't have to, but I do think there's room for expansion to build the corporate name. And the endless digital possibilities!!
