As part of the Bond Integrated Marketing campaign that was developed by Coca-Cola’s North West Europe and Nordics business unit to support Coke Zero’s association with the newest Bond movie “SkyFall”, we launched an online video to drive engagement and conversation around the central campaign idea of ‘Coke Zero drives you to unlock the 007 in you’. The video was shot at the Central Station of Antwerp in Belgium inviting real consumers to unlock the 007 in themselves and overcome their personal 007 mission to win exclusive tickets for this year’s most anticipated movie, “SkyFall”.

With the above results, the video has entered the Mashable Top 100 of most shared ‘commercials’ EVER and is still climbing…  Also, the video is the most shared Bond related ad and got us in the Top 3 YouTube search results of ‘007’ leveraging the association with “Skyfall”.

Using members of the public in a common place like a rail station delivered great participation and real emotions that resulted in content with a strong emotional resonance. And let’s be honest: who hasn’t dreamed of rushing through a busy station in true Bond style… To us this video is a great example of the power and productivity of strong & relevant content to drive ‘brand love’.
