What Would You Do For Free Coke?

April 18, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

At the National University of Singapore Coca-Cola is trying a marketing technique with a twist:

  • Coca-Cola has installed a vending machine that dispenses free Coke.
  • The twist? You have to hug the machine – by putting your arms around it and squeezing its sides – to get the drink.
  • The physical interaction with the machine is likely to create a stronger memory in the minds of consumers, making it an effective marketing campaign.
