Coke Makes Peace Again -- Between Rival Soccer Fans

Italy's Milan and Inter Supporters Come Together Via the Power of Soda

Editor's Pick
Coke used vending machines to bring fighting parties together with its award-winning "Small World Machines" campaign. But now, instead of bringing together nations at odds, it's using drink dispensers to ameliorate tensions between another kind of rival-- soccer fans. Two of the world's best soccer teams are both based in Italy: Inter and Milan. To ease the aggression between their fans, Coke installed vending machines on opposite sides of Milan's San Siro stadium as the teams faced off, but there was a hitch. Pressing the button of one machine dropped a Coke can down the chute of that on the side of the rival team -- so rivals could only receive Cokes from each other. The campaign was created out of McCann and directed by Filmmaster's Edoardo Lugari.
