Coca-Cola unleashes major World Cup campaign

By  |  0 Comments

The world’s single most highly recognised brand has just unleashed its greatest marketing campaign, aligning itself nicely with the forthcoming FIFA World Cup.

Through its ‘The World’s Cup’ campaign, Coca-Cola “invites the world to celebrate football as a force for social good” (according to the press release, anyway).

One of the key elements of the campaign is strong interactivity with audiences, with the brand promising unrivalled access, participation and conversation between football fans for this year’s Cup event. Heck, some may even get to converse with key players through social network sites such as Twitter, and Facebook.

There’s also a series of documentary-style short films, and the development of something called ‘The Happiness Flag’ which will be the largest photomosaic of its kind, to feature fan faces and messages. And of course, there’ll be a catchy commercial soundtrack to the whole she-bang with the official music anthem for the Coca-Cola 2014 FIFA World Cup campaign featuring key Brazilian artists.

With the unofficial slogan for Coca-Cola’s latest World Cup campaign being ‘Get Happiness Rolling’, we thought we’d roll out a host of previous, official slogans the cola brand has adopted in the past.
