Have you seen the viral Coke ad? 

Security camera at London (Heathrow) Airport. ...

Nowadays, we are surrounded by security cameras which capture our every move 24/7. They are used as a crime prevention tool to discourage shoplifters, burglars, vandals and so on.  The latest Coke advertisement, which has gone viral on facebook offers a different view of what happens in front of the cameras.  The clip shows footage from around the world of sweet everyday moments:  people kissing, dancing, helping the homeless and, of course, drinking coke.  The idea behind the ad is to urge people to ‘look at the world a little differently’.  It also gives you that good, happy feeling that makes you want to share a coke.  In other words, mission accomplished.
