Hulk, Ant-Man Vie For Coca-Cola Mini in Super Bowl Spot From W+K
In this Super Bowl :60, Marvel super hero Ant-Man attempts to swipe a Coca-Cola Mini Can from the refrigerator in Dr. Bruce Banner’s lab, only to be caught in mid-heist by Banner. Enraged by the thought of losing his beverage of choice, Banner turns into the Hulk and a wild chase ensues through busy city streets. Ant-Man for a brief moment appears to escape but in fact he becomes trapped and has to surrender the can to the Hulk. However, the green giant’s fingers are to large to open the can--so Ant-Man comes to his rescue, popping the top so both can enjoy the pause that refreshes.
The airing of the “Coke Mini” spot kicks off a virtual hunt for Marvel-themed Coca-Cola Mini Cans, which feature six of the world’s best-known heroes – Hulk, Ant-Man, Black Widow, Captain America, Iron Man and Falcon. Each day through February 14, Coca-Cola will release hidden clues (known as “Easter eggs”) through its social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Snapchat. Each individual “Easter egg” will unlock a limited number of cans and provide young adults direction for the chance to obtain a limited edition six-pack of their own. Marvel-themed, limited-edition Coca-Cola Mini Cans are not available for sale in retail outlets – and only available while supplies last.
