Coca-Cola Launches First Major Campaign Following Pandemic
Coca-Cola Ireland has announced the launch of a new campaign, Open Like Never Before.
Featuring a manifesto poem written specifically for Coca-Cola by award-winning spoken word artist, George The Poet, the campaign aims to mark a time of social and cultural change post pandemic, the soft drinks company said. .
The campaign, created and developed by 72andSunny Amsterdam, launches following a seven month pause on air, the longest ever for Coca-Cola, which saw the brand redirect resources to support relief efforts around the world.
“This year, Coca-Cola was off air for the longest time in history as we redirected our support to relief efforts," said Petre Sandru, country manager, Coca-Cola Ireland.
"The Open Like Never Before campaign is founded on the belief that we don’t just have to go back to normal following this huge change in everyone’s lives. Instead, it’s our ambition to move forward and make the world not just different, but a better, more open place," he added.
