Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Research shows that while teens today are the most 'connected' generation ever, they often still feel isolated or alone. It also shows that COKE is starting to become less relevant to them. Our aim was to create a campaign that would bring teens together through their true passion, music.

COCA-COLA and the band One Night Only co-created a song around the sacred teenage ritual of locking yourself in your room and cranking the stereo. It’s a time when teens escape, through music, in the sanctuary of their rooms. They might feel like they are on their own, but the ritual is a universal one. This song and video offer an imaginative look at how COKE and music help bring teens from all over the world together.

Creative Execution
First we worked with the band One Night Only to create a new song. Next we shot a global ad campaign with a full-length music video featuring the band with teens from all over the world. On set, we invited our teen cast to inform and influence the action, to ensure its relevance and authenticity.

An online version of the video allows teens to insert their own footage into the action, and to invite their friends and peers to get in on the fun, helping 'Can You Feel It Tonight?' spread around the globe.

Results and Effectiveness
The video has only been launched in Germany at the beginning of this year and it has 104,725 YouTube hits so far.
