Brief: The Coca-Cola Friendship Machine was born to make all the friends of Latin America celebrate Friend’s Day in a very special way.
Creative Execution: For everyone to enjoy a Coke with their friends and take advantage of the special 2 for 1 Coke offer, friends had to cooperate with each other to insert the money into the machine slot.
