  1. A lot of info to take in and I’d have to watch the video two or three times, but I thought it was great! It really highlighted the heart of content marketing … storytelling, which endorses culture, which endorses brands.

  2. A lucid and very interesting concept…Have 2 intriguing observations-how much of this liquid content is practical in a developing economy like India where Coke Studio doesn’t mean much outside urban India(comprising less than 40% of population). Secondly with growing health considerations Coke need to re-look at its focus area wrt products. Pepsi have already done that…

  3. Great perspective on building a conversation ecosystem, as the relationship between businesses and consumers becomes just as important in a virtual reality as it is when it’s the “real thing” Be sure to watch part two. ” I’d like to teach the world to SHARE, in perfect harmony….” Beautiful.

  4. I like how it advocates co-creation with consumers that leads to dynamic storytelling that in turn provokes a response. Mostly, I like it because it elevates marcom into the business plan.

  5. I think it was interesting that to explain the cutting edge of advertising with technology they chose to present it as though it was real time hand drawn line art.

  6. I like coca cola if they hire me and love the commercials. Bottom line with coke is that a lot of people like it already and they will continue long as coke helps the world. I am going to make that happen…crush pepsi..haha

  7. @5:09 “Our powerful position in the world affords us the opportunity & responsibility to create significant positive change in the world.” Being in this strong position, to which positive changes in the world will The Coca-Cola Company lead us? What’s your vision beyond creating shareholder value? @Coca-Cola Company, please interact with us and let us know.

  8. Video is cool, of course, but this would work better as a communication piece as a graphic “booklet” (electronic of course) so that you could refer back to key concepts (like BVA?) instead of trying to hold them all in memory.
