Then you’d better hurry up because you’ve only got eleven days left to film a video of yourself doing the sound effects of opening a bottle or can of Coke.
Here are the sound effects you’ll need to imitate to get a shot at starring in the commercial:
Opening a bottle or can of Coca-Cola Ice cubes clinking as they drop into a glass Pouring a Coca-Cola over the ice The fizzing of a Coca-Cola as it bubbles after being poured Your first drink of a Coca-Cola That “Ahh” moment of refreshment
If you’re really good, I’m pretty sure they’d let you pass if you did an impression of Diet Coke with Lime instead of the regular Coke.
And, just to be clear, I think the sound effect they’re looking for as “your first drink of Coca-Cola” is the first drink after you pour your imitation Coke. Although, if you want to interpret it as your first drink of Coke ever in your life, feel free to go with that interpretation.
Or you could use the first drink of Coca-Cola the morning after your first major hangover. Seriously, the medicinal effects of Coke and a couple of aspirin is pretty much the stuff of legend among serious party people. Talk about an “ahh” moment of refreshment — an ice cold Coke the morning after a night of tequila binge drinking doesn’t just quench your thirst, it goes a long way toward restoring your faith in humanity.
Coca-Cola is joining other companies who are using Facebook as their platform of choice to interact with customers. Coke took this a step further by partnering with two guys who had a Coca-Cola fan page.
Michael Jedrzejewski and Dusty Sorg started their Facebook page last year. Coke officials got wind of the page and now “Coca-Cola now works in tandem with Michael and Dusty, providing unique content and opportunities for fans such as the chance to be in the next commercial.”
That’s a refreshing approach right there.
I’d like to teach the world to do Coke imitations…
