08 Aug Coke Inspires Pregnancy Announcement, Cheerios Targets Super Dads
My colleague Sally McHugh recently wrote about Coca-Cola. So, I want to make it clear, we are in no way being paid by them to talk about their products. In fact, Coke had nothing to do with this latest video (well, at least I don’t think they had anything to do with it) that takes advantage of the companies’ recent #ShareaCoke packaging campaign, which I love.
As a mom, I’m jealous of these two future parents’ creativity. The advertising team/agency for Coke should also be jealous and probably edit this into a television commercial for the product. Take a look:

This video inspired me to start looking around for other unique social videos directed at parents and featuring consumer products. I came across this gem from Cheerios (a legitimate ad this time) that focuses, for once, on dads. It’s also pretty cool:
