Have you seen the viral Coke ad?
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.
