That was a coke ad right?

What a manipulative pile of bull crappy. I'm having a Pepsi just to piss off the ad execs who came up with that.

It's an ad but all of the footage is real, stop biatching.

At the end, when youtube throws up 9 or 12 suggested videos, one for me was the top female fail compilation for 2012, so there's that.

/the two bits with guns should tell you why not everyone should be armed. Holy shiatsu, the second one is funny.
5:47 for the first, 8:45 for the second.

I was OK with it until it featured some jackass doing graffiti on a building. So I guess Coke won't have any issues if I get a can of white spraypaint and whiz "Peace" all over their corporate headquarters?

Rest of the video was cool though.

Actually, I've noticed something really annoying recently.  YouTube now throws in "related" videos based on your past viewing history.  I spend most nights using YouTube as my personal jukebox... just easier than using my iPod, and they have a lot of rare live videos and the like.  So I'll look at something like this video... and in the "related" searches are Fleetwood Mac, Beastie Boys, etc.  Lame.

A crummy commercial? Sonofabiatch....

I like the guy dancin' with the mop. i've probably been there before but with an audience. I like to garner weird stares.

IT'S A FARKING COKE COMMERCIAL YOU TARD-ASSED DOUCHETWAT!! NOT A SINGLE PIECE OF THAT FOOTAGE WAS REAL.

MERRY FARKING CHRISTMAS, FARK, SUBBY, GREENLIGHT FAIL!

wrong.

"A Coke rep tells us that while many of the clips in the ad are real, "there are a few clips that, while the situation is real, we had to recreate for the ad because it was impossible to find and secure permissions from all the people recorded on the cameras."

The one I clicked on turned out to be this one.

THIS. Plus, I haven't seen that many security cameras that use tilt-shift. That was the first thing I noticed, and it seems to be the case in most of the clips.

This is the kind of crap that gets greenlit when the hippies are being modmins.

except it's not real video.
it is re-creation. meaning actors, enhanced movements, more emotion-inducing actions...

it's a commercial.

♫I'd like to make the world a street and furnish it with spies,
With Big Brother's cameras, and more eyes in the skies.
I'd like to teach the world to feel our gaze when they're outside.
I'd like to sell the world a Coke and know that they can't hide.♫
 
2012-12-22 11:15:09 PM  
what a manipulative way to get citizens to accept the all seeing eye of big brother in the sky. Our handlers watching us isn't creepy, its sweet and they just care about us. Don't drink the kool-aid, people. This is Coke and the Government working together to socially condition us to accept intrusion as a 'not so bad thing' ... it'll take a few generations, but they'll change public perception.

I drink Coke Zero (0) with cheap rum so I think I'm alright.

Yeah that's pretty much what I figured.. I only recognized one of the clips that came from a real event.. the guy who jumped from the motorcycle to push a van off the train tracks is from real security footage.. most of the others looked like they were "recreated" with actors.
 
2012-12-23 12:22:44 AM  
Way too much tilt shift. Hint: it only works on shots from afar.
 
2012-12-23 04:33:13 AM  
I worked on this campaign. It's all feel good straight up manufactured. Sorry for the spoiler.
 
2012-12-23 05:25:51 AM  
Old advert is old.
But at least one of those shots was real, i remember the guy pushing the van off the train tracks.Link
