Coca-Cola has unveiled its new global innovation platform, Coca-Cola Creations, along with its first limited-edition product, Coca-Cola Starlight.
Coca-Cola Creations will take the iconic Coca-Cola trademark and lend it to new expressions, driven by collaboration, creativity and cultural connections. Through limited-edition, sequential releases, Coca-Cola Creations will introduce new products and experiences across physical and digital worlds.
The first product to launch under Coca-Cola Creations is Coca-Cola Starlight, created with the vision that – in a world of infinite possibilities – somewhere in our universe, another kind of Coca-Cola, another way of connecting with each other might exist.
Coca-Cola Starlight combines great Coca-Cola taste with a dash of the unexpected, including a reddish hue. Its taste includes additional notes reminiscent of stargazing around a campfire, as well as a cooling sensation that evokes the feeling of a cold journey to space.
Coca-Cola Starlight offers a unique packaging design, featuring a multi-dimensional, light-filled star field and will be supported by a digital-first marketing campaign, including a partnership with global popstar Ava Max. The campaign is led by an out-of-this-world augmented reality (AR) “Concert on a Coca-Cola” experience that can be accessed via www.cocacola.com/creations and by scanning a Coca-Cola Starlight can or bottle. Surrounded by red liquid and gradient lighting, Max will perform her universal hits, “Kings & Queens,” “Sweet But Psycho” and “EveryTime I Cry” as part of an AR-holographic private concert using the can as an anti-gravity, translucent space station. The experience design and production was created by Virtue (the agency powered by VICE) and Tool.
Coca-Cola Starlight is available for a limited time beginning Feb. 21.
Later this year, Coca-Cola will introduce additional limited-edition Coca-Cola Creations featuring unique innovations and unexpected collaborations.
