Coke 'Happiness' Refill

murraygalbraith_coke If you needed more evidence of why Coca-Cola's 2020 marketing strategy is sheer genius, behold... The Wi-Fi refill machine they just rolled out to ~45 million pre-paid mobile phone customers in Brazil.

  • We'd like even more young people to drink Coke
  • Young people connect with the world via their mobile phone
  • Mobile data is (relatively) expensive, but highly desirable

Creative brief: How can Coca-Cola solve this? How can we become the connective tissue between teens & 'happiness'?

There's very few brands on the planet who have been blessed with the global awareness and distribution to pull off something like this.

And now, with Coca Cola FM and especially owning the users personal data from their very own mobile browser, I can only see Coke pulling further ahead.
