#MagicWaaliDiwali with Coca-Cola
Coca-Cola has always been a part of consumers’ cherished celebrations and this year they’re bringing an innovative way to create personalised Diwali wishes. Imagine a wish card that’s as quintessential and vibrant as this festival of light, one that blends tradition with innovation and leaves behind the conventional messages. From wish cards adorned with colourful diyas to quirky auto-rickshaws – a classic symbol of Indian markets, from Coca-Cola’s iconic cans and bottles, to colourful rangolis, consumers can create a masterpiece that encapsulates the heart of India’s Diwali. The campaign is active across India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bhutan.
Global Head of Generative AI at Coca-Cola, Pratik Thakar, said, “We, at Coca-Cola are connecting the dots between culture, creativity and technology. Create Real Magic platform invites consumers to use AI for crafting original artwork using iconic creative elements from the Coca-Cola archives.
