It’s been out for a while now (New May 2013) and no doubt you’ve seen it on your social media. Coke have created a set of limited edition bottles which have your name on the bottle.
Well, not just your name. All of our names! The idea being you can see you friend’s name, buy them a Coke and share some happiness. Here’s what Coke have to say about it on their YouTube Channel:
This summer we’re swapping our name with yours. We’re replacing the iconic Coca-Cola logo on some of our bottles with 150 of Great Britain’s favourite names, so you can share a Coke with your friends, family and loved ones. So, who will you share a Coke with? #shareacoke
Not only is it fun, it works! And Coke are benefiting from free social media exposure by the boat load. And there’s more – all the shared pictures are happy smiling faces of people who’ve been bought at Coke. Well today I got mine.

The world’s most sophisticated flash mob? (24 years on… still going strong! But have you been and is it in your city yet?)
What’s it all about?
At the last minute, the location is given to thousands of friends and acquaintances who have been patiently waiting to learn the “Dîner en Blanc’s” secret place. Thousand of people, dressed all in white, and conducting themselves with the greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette, all meet for a mass “chic picnic” in a public space.
Over the course of an evening, the diners enhance the function and value of their city’s public space by participating in the unexpected.
Beyond the spectacle and refined elegance of the dinner itself, guests are brought together from diverse backgrounds by a love of beauty and good taste.
Le Dîner en Blanc recalls the elegance and glamour of court society, and diners engage one another knowing they are taking part in a truly magical event.
There are no disruptions: no car traffic, no pedestrian traffic, except for the occasional amazed and astonished looks from passersby at the scene unfolding before them. And we, as they, wonder whether it’s all not a dream…
