Coca-Cola Happiness Truck around the World – Where Will Happiness Strike Next?

Inspired by the vending machine that dispensed Coca-Cola and other “doses of happiness” on a college campus in New York and quickly became a global viral video sensation; a specially rigged Coca-Cola delivery truck took to the streets of  Rio de Janeiro recently to spread refreshment and smiles to passers-by.

All the action is captured in a two-and-a-half-minute film. In the video, several unsuspecting Brazilians push a button on the back of the truck to dispense Coca-Cola and other fun items such as soccer balls, surfboards and sunglasses.

“‘Happiness Machine’ connected with so many people because the emotion was authentic, unscripted and contagious,” said A.J. Brustein, Global Senior Brand Manager, Coca-Cola. “We wanted to inspire that same feeling again by creating something consumers would respond to and want to share with others because it put a smile on their face.” 

Happiness Truck is one of many videos that can be found on the Facebook hub for “Where Will Happiness Strike Next?”. The hub features more than 25 films from around the world that have been created by local Coca-Cola teams to continue the theme of the award-winning “Happiness Machine,” which has generated more than 3 million online views. The interactive site lets consumers search for videos by country and even vote for where they’d like to see happiness strike next.

“We weren’t trying to replace ‘Happiness Machine’ with the ‘Happiness Truck,'” said Christy Amador, Digital Marketing Manager, Global Content Excellence.  “We wanted to build on this great idea and continue to answer the question, ‘Where Will Happiness Strike Next?’ by  spreading a message of happiness around the globe. These videos from markets all over the world help us to do just that.”

Two of the new films on the hub include a version of “Happiness Truck” filmed in the Philippines and “Happiness Store,” where convenience store customers in Rio are surprised with confetti, lights, live music and more upon grabbing a Coca-Cola from the cooler. “Happiness Machine” – which cost very little to produce – proved that we don’t need to spend millions to produce winning creative, and that great ideas and content can be sourced from anywhere.

Happiness Truck/The Cheering Truck in Argentina (FOOTBALL Edition)

This time, Coca-Cola outfitted a special red truck with a recording booth and has been travelling around Argentina collecting the cheers of football (or soccer depending on where you are from) fans to support the Argentinean team. Fans are encouraged to record their cheer to be heard by millions.

The truck drove through 19 different provinces in Argentina as it collected the cheer of over a million different voices. On the day of the match, the Coca-Cola Cheering Truck drove into a stadium that only had room for 50 thousand fans and played the recordings of over a million fans chanting and cheering for the team. Way to rally the troop Coca-Cola!

Coca-cola has been doing some really creative marketing campaigns that have utilized a traveling truck concept (see The Happiness Truck). It’s their way of spreading happiness throughout the world…not to mention strengthening their brand!

Banco do Brasil – The bank with clients names

Banco do Brasil, the Latin America’s biggest bank with approximately 23 million clients, rebranded 300 of their entrance banners in nine Brazilian states to include client’s name. The rebranding was part of a bigger campaign to celebrate the fact that people were free tp change to another bank without paying an additional  fee.

Banco do Brasil has 15.000 branches, and only a fraction of those were personalized, but the symbolic gesture created the sense that every Banco do Brasil client is unique. The campaign doubled the number of new accounts and spawned spontaneous media coverage.

The Original Click (2012)

For each successful video on YouTube there is poorly made imitations. There are hundreds of bad imitations and video clip remakes. Some of these copies had millions of views. And we saw an opportunity behind all this: promoting Volkswagen original auto parts.

We looked for some copies of these videos with a considerable amount of views on YouTube and we placed banners promoting our product in them. When users clicked on the banner, they had a surprise: they were redirected from the copy to the original video and thus we managed to promote our product without taking anyone to visit a corporate site.

For each US$100 spent, we had almost 125,000 views and approximately 500 clicks.

We see the Titanic sailing over the dark waters of the Atlantic Ocean. In the crow’s nest there’s a watchman, personified by a Yellow chocolate Rocklets. Suddenly, he spots a huge iceberg and informs the other Rocklets who desperately trie to alert the Captain. As soon as he takes off to do so, a huge human hand takes it away and eats it. The Rocklet was never able to inform the ship that it is about to crash into an iceberg. Super: The beginning of the history of a Rocklets is very close to the end.

Boa Mistura – Floating Graffiti

Boa Mistura, a spanish art collective composed of five self-described graffiti rockers, has organized a participatory urban art
project in Vila Brâsilandia, one of the favelas in São Paulo, Brazil. The artists, whose name comes from the portuguese for ‘buena mezcla’ (‘good mixture’), worked with residents to paint and reface the winding ‘vecos’ and ‘vielas’ of the favela with uplifting messages. Viewed from the proper angle and distance, the works cause words like ‘beleza’ (‘beauty’) and ‘orgulho’ (‘pride’) to seemingly float in the passageway, thanks to an illusion effect based on the careful painting of stretched-out text in accordance with the 3D perspective. The artists hope that the project will have a positive impact on the local community. “Neighbour participation and community involvement in each of the interventions has been the determining factor for its realisation. Sharing, hand by hand, the transformation of their environment, the habitants modified their relationship with the public space and their own houses,” they said.
