There are times when we all get hit with labels of some kind: geek, feminist, gamer — and those are the tame ones. No one likes being pushed into just one box, because as people, we're multi-faceted.
As it turns out, Coca-Cola feels the same way, or at least they're saying that in one of their latest campaigns. FP7/DXB, an agency that's a part of McCann Worldgroup and based in Dubai, released these new images with the slogan, "Labels are for cans, not for people." Why?
"In the Middle East, a region with over 200 nationalities and a larger number of labels dividing people, these Coca-Cola cans send a powerful and timeless message that a world without labels is a world without differences. And that we are all basically just the same—human."
What are your thoughts about this new campaign? Is Coke making a positive statement or is there something missing in your opinion?
