So I had nothing to do 😛 ehehe…
I sometimes have an obsession for ads! Ahaha. This all started way back in college (probably because I took up advertising as an additional course). I love the way companies sell their products through their ads. To me I especially love funny commercials — and sometimes it usually gets banned. In the States, companies are willing to pay a high premium just to put show their ads for the first time during the Super Bowl.
One of the companies that has unique and very good ads is Coca Cola. Their ads are really fun to watch. So what I’m posting now are COKE ads. And since my current obsession is with anything asian I’m putting Asian Coke ads in the spotlight..
Asian Coke Ads – China
Angela Zhang and Wilber Pan
If you’ve watched Romantic Princess, I’m sure you know who Angela Zhang is. According to my friend, Angela Zhang is quite popular in China (you can see her on the sprite pet bottle.. or was it 7up??). Wilber Pan on the other hand is the guy who sang Bu De Bu Ai. He also starred in Miss No Good last year with Rainie. This ad is cute. Both of them are sitting together — far apart from each other, when suddenly something that sounded like a telephone rang. As there is no phone in sight, he opened the bag and got the coke out and said “Wei” ahahaha. It was a cute way to get a girl’s attention..
Wilber Pan, Liu Xiang and Angela Xiang
Coke was the one of the official sponsors for Beijing Olympics last year. This commercial was made sometime 2007 and it featured one of China’s athlete (track and field) Liu Xiang. The commercial features Wilber Pan and Liu Xiang fighting over a Coke bottle. Liu Xiang in the end finally gets the bottle (watch it and you’ll see how he did it) but its ok, Wilber Pan gets the girl! wahahaha.. ke ai!
Wang Lee Hom and some Chinese athletes
Wang Lee Hom is still so ke ai!!! This is another coke ad that features the some athetes (again promoting the Olympics). Athletes fight over getting the Coke bottle but in the end the last athlete jumps towards the helicopter and shares the coke with Lee Hom.
Asian Coke Ads – Korea
Shinwa Coke Ad
Ok so I am a confessed Korean entertainment industry addict. There I’ve said it! So I also had to post ads from Korea. I’m starting it with a Coke ad that features Shinwa. I think this is an old ad, but it features them getting “high” on Coke. It was fun to watch them. Spot you’re favorite member!
Jeon Ji Hyun and Eddie Peng
Jeon Ji Hyun is the girl from the infamous movie My Sassy Girl. She reprises that role in the movie. However its not the same guy but with a Taiwanese guy, Eddie Peng (he was the guy from Wayward Kenting – he looks a little like Joe Cheng.
Eric (Shinwa) for Coke zero
Eric is sooooooooo hot! ahahaha. This commercial is actually the third part of the coke zero series. The first and the second commercial had Eric snatched the drink from the girl. The third commercial features the girl’s revenge ^^. He looks so hot here!
Asian Coke Ads – Philippines (some of my faves)
Eto and Beat sabay sabay
I think this came out some 5 years ago or 4 years ago, couldn’t remember. But what I remembered was that it had us doing the beat too! The ad features two girls fighting over who gets the Coke. They do it through a play of hands. I remember my classmates memorized how to do it.. Eto and beat sabay sabay, eto ang beat bawal sablay! ahahaha..
Nikki Gil – Sana
This was the Philippine’s version of the “I Wish” multilingual Coke campaign. This features Nikki Gil (who was not so popular back then). I love the song and the concept of the commercial. Nikki Gil walking around the streets distributing Coke to people from several walks of life… the concept was touching and nice.
Angel and Devil
This was the campaign ad by Coke sometime last year. The concept was unique and cute in a way. An angel from heaven looks down on earth and see people drinking something and they feel refreshed. She comes down and gets a Coke from the vending machine. She see a guy and asks him if he was from here.. then the guy answers “I am now”. Notice the horns! ahahaha… fun fun fun!
It was fun to watch all these commercials. But its a little hard looking for them and posting it! wahahaha. But I’ll be posting another set next time 😀
**credits to all youtube users who posted the videos! sorry I forgot to mention who you are…
the “eto ang beat” was probably six or seven years ago!!! we were in first year college then!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
really don’t remember jud! ahahah but i remember everyone in class knew how to do it.. or at least tried to do it!
waaaa.. its difficult to make this! maybe later.. if i have nothing else to do! 😀
what about that whimsical vending machine ad of last year or of 2 years ago?
it was the only ad that had the balls to air major tongue action -creatures swapping saliva.
(though they had it cut out after the first few airings)
have you seen that?
i swear, you’ll react when you see the tongue action in that ad.
i remember that ad… i’ll try to see if i can find it…
