The Brief

The task was to bring to life Coca-Cola’s new ‘Crazy for Good’ strategy in an optimistic and powerful way. The insight was that a moment of happiness has the power to bring the world closer together. So we set about bringing that moment to two groups who would normally never connect but who were familiar with the values of Coca-Cola - India and Pakistan. A 3 day promotional event let them interact like never before. In doing this we proved a core belief of the Coca-Cola brand: what unites people is stronger than what sets them apart.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation

At the heart of the campaign lay 2 purpose built Coca-Cola machines equipped with world-first technologies that opened a portal between India and Pakistan. The campaign began with an online video showing the building of the machines. Posters and social media directed people to the 3 day promotion where people got to use the Small World Machines for the first time. To unlock the machines, participants had to actively engage with each other, sending messages of peace, love and happiness across the border. Each participant was rewarded with a bespoke can that featured the languages of the 2 nations.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service

Small World Machines are a highly visible and tangible realisation of Coca-Cola’s values, compelling consumers to get actively involved with the brand in a way that had never been done before. An online film then shared the promotion with the world.
