My Favourite Coca Cola Ad

Perhaps this Coca Cola commercial (2006) is a golden oldie to some of you but I hadn’t seen it before and was impressed by it. So impressed that I just had to post it here. Great work.

Did they get the idea from this clip? (thanks to ana for the tip!)


I have seen this exact same idea in a japanesse short movie, i believe it was called “sentimental journey”.. it actually even ended the same way. The production in cocacolas’ ad is overwhelming. In the short i saw it was pretty cool but less budget.

I wonder who copied who… ¬.¬

It was taken down from youtube due to copyright.. blah blah…

I found it on DailyMotion, i hopes it doesn’t get banned there 😉

Who’s copying who?
Nagi Noda directed both spots.

I worked for the production co. that did this commercial.
Coke’s agency saw something they liked, and brought it to a much wider audience, and with better production values.

I’m not saying that’s right or wrong, but I do like that they went back to Nagi, esp. considering that was sort of a breakout spot for her.

@ana: Interesting. Especially since this is not the first time that [url=]Coca Cola commercials look like other clips[/url] (or the other way around).

Do you think you could find the Japanese clip on YouTube?

@ana: Thanks… I added the clip to the post.

Very similar indeed.
I wonder who influenced who.

@Greg: Thanks for the added info, Greg!

Good to hear that they gave credit to the original creator by offering her the chance to direct the Coca Cola commercial.
