Its 'Share a Coke' campaign there celebrates Lebanon's culture of sharing

BEIRUT — Want to share a Coke here? Now you can do it with Fadi, Rana, Mom, Jad, Sami, Habibi, Leah, Karim, Khayye, Sara — and with Lebanon itself.

A new video, created by Memac Ogilvy Dubai in support of Coca-Cola’s "Share a Coke" campaign, taps into Lebanese national pride, building on the premise that the Lebanese love to share. It captures this spirit of sharing in different scenarios and contexts.

The video showcases how people in Lebanon love to share their food, their music, their energy, their journeys and their viewpoints. It urges the audience to share their good times with the people who make them happy, to share a Coke with them and let them know how special they are.

As in other global "Share a Coke" branding efforts, Coca-Cola is putting names of people on cans.
