Coke: Hug Me Machine

Wonderful work for Coca Cola by our Ogilvy & Mather They created and installed an innovative vending machine that gives you a free Coke when people hug it in a specific way! The machine was installed at the National University of Singapore, see how it turned out above.

Another Ogilvy office, this time China, recently tracked down the man behind the Steve Jobs Tribute Image and got him into the studio, below is his fantastic twist on a classic logo. The print is being used as posters around Shanghai. To read more on the story of how it came about go to hands poster

International Inspiration

Good, better, best. Never let it rest, till your good is better, and your better best. We’re always pushing to do better at Ogilvy Cape Town and draw inspiration from global talent. This month Work We Wish We Had Done includes the heart warming Darth Vader ad for Volkswagen Passat, the tongue-in-cheek cereal ad by Ogilvy New York and the off-the-wall Skittles ad.
