Coca Cola – Khmer New Year

Coca-Cola injects a youthful, exciting twist to an age-old festival and gets Khmer youth all fired-up again.

Challenge

Most young Cambodians are slightly tired of Khmer New Year, with its age-old traditions and rituals. Coca-Cola wanted to inject a feeling of excitement and happiness into the New Year and get youngsters all jazzed up for the celebrations.

Strategy

When you allow youngsters to do old things in new ways, they become more involved and animated. Provide them the opportunity to add an exciting twist (of happiness, in this case) to tradition, and it’s like celebrating New Year for the first time.
