‘Hug Me’ Coke Machine
A vending machine recently installed at the National University of Singapore dispenses free cans of Coca-Cola when you hug it. Watch the Coke ad above that shows the HugMe machine in action. Forbes makes an interesting observation that the choice of location for this particular style of campaign is very smart — in Singapore, public displays of affection have historically been uncommon/discouraged; by placing this machine in a university setting, Coke is counting on the country’s youth to be the first to buck this trend and ‘hug it out.’
