Live Like Grandpa Did


This is Coca-Cola’s new advert to encourage a healthy life style as part of a anti-obesity campaign. I love it! As Britain – a long with many other countries have a growing waistline it’s about time that companies are trying to emphasize the need for a healthy lifestyle. Coca-Cola are just the kind of big company which needs to help tackle this problem. Ok, I agree, Coca-Cola may be one of the problems with it’s sugar-filled drinks. However, that’s due to people’s own consumption as I’m sure it could be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle if drank as a treat once in a while. My favourite part of the advert is the montage of heart-warming family images at the end. Well done Coke, you get a thumbs up from me.



Where’s my name?


There it is!

I love Coca Cola’s current campaign – printing 150 of the most popular names on Coke bottles. It’s genius. I’m sure most people who have seen Coke bottles in a store have had a cheeky look to see if their name is there.

The sheer joy of finding your own name, whether it’s a popular name or not, makes you feel like a kid again looking through personalized stuff in a shop just to see if you can see your name (I’m sure we’ve all done it). I haven’t actually found my own name, a friend found it in London and sent me a picture. It was a nice surprise as I know my name isn’t very popular – usually people are called Jo for short.

It’s quite clear to see this campaign is turning people into children again, aside from people looking for their names there’s been quite a lot of comments/complaints wondering why Coke don’t provide a bottle with their name on. Are they taking it too seriously? After all it is just meant to be harmless fun.

I can’t wait to see what their marketing department do next!
