YouTube case study

Security cameras are often associated with traffic accidents, robberies and people throwing cats into rubbish bins. However, in this video Coke shows us how happiness can come from looking at the world a little differently.

Made up of a selection of clips from surveillance cameras around the world the ad features activities like people stealing kisses, dealers of ‘potato chips’, attacks of friendship and friendly gangs.

The 90-second adw as made by production company Landia for Coca-Cola Latin America.

Marin Mercado, creative director behind the advert said, “People tend to associate security cameras with negative events, but we wanted to disprove that assumption by demonstrating the abundance of happy events and actions they capture.”

The ad finishes on the tag line “Let’s look at the world a little differently,” followed by the ubiquitous Coca-Cola bottle.
