Coca-Cola’s Detachable Bottle Labels as Wristbands for Music Festivals

A brilliant idea by the software giant to engage simply and effectively with a significant section of its market – millennials

Coca Cola

One special feature of Coca-Cola has been the kind of packaging stunts that it comes up with all across the world. This time an interesting innovation by Coca Cola’s Romanian division looks good enough to become a worldwide hit – it’s another smart idea from the soda giant which allows a customer to detach a part of the label from every bottle and use it as a wristband that will allow him to access music festivals. As always, such ideas are developed by the creative agency that designs Coca Cola’s marketing communications and in this case it’s McCann Bucharest that came out with the exciting idea. Of course, not every detachable label grants access to a music festival as it needs to be scanned with a specially designed app to see if it was a winner.

According to McCann, the idea is already a hit in Romania, where millennials have started collecting and wearing them as a fashion statement. Coca Cola partnered with some of the leading music festivals in that country, such as Transylvania’s Untold Festival, which recently, named the Best Major European Festival at the European Festival Awards. According McCann, around 75 percent of Romanian teens responded positively to the campaign resulting in a sales jump of 11% which is substantial, considering the scale at which Coca Cola operates.

This is one of the most exciting ways of reaching out to the millennials all over the world where music festivals are attended mostly by young people but it could transcend the age barrier and become popular with other age groups as well. For now though, Coca Cola probably thinks it’s better to focus on the young crowd and they are everywhere, not just in music festivals. This is truly a brilliant idea that can be sustained for the simplicity with which it can be implemented and the potential gains it promises as the results in Romania prove. It proves customer engagement is always the winner.
