Aim Of the campaign
Strategy & Execution
• Social Media is addictive. Every time you log into your facebook and twitter accounts,
they tend to take up most of your times leaving you overburdened with work. So much so,
now people use these mediums to communicate when on the dining tables, when out with
friends, when eating, when sleeping, in short all the time. Coca-Cola, planned to ‘guard’ people
from using the social media every minute and every second of their lives. The Social
Media Guard takes the ‘social’ out of media and puts it back into your life.
“If you're watching this video on your mobile phone, it's time to put it down.
Look around you: there’s probably someone special you can share a real moment with.”
• The above, was the YouTube description posted alongside a cheeky film titled Coca-Cola Social
Media Guard, which invites us to enjoy real moments of connection with each other by taking a
refreshing pause from our screens.
• In the video, people can be seen wearing red plastic funnels over their heads to help keep their
eyes on each other and off their smartphones. A voice over lightheartedly refers to the real
world as “the thing that happens when you run out of battery.”
• The video received more than 2 million views on youtube in less than a week
• The video kicks off a Coca-Cola campaign in the Middle East focused on taking
the "social" out of social media and putting it back into our lives.
• More than 70,000 blogs, articles etc were posted across different websites &
platforms about this campaign. This presentation is one of them
• Cocacola page on Facebook received more than 1.4million likes within 2 weeks
of this campaign
• Unique, innovative and impactful, the campaign was liked by many and viewed
by even more.
• Though the product “The Social media Guard” was just a spoof, people were
actually demanding for the same on the outlets of cocacola
• Definitely successful, the campaign is different and has been able to keep up with
the past campaigns that Coca-Cola has done.
