Jun 2013 17

Summertime is a great time for sharing soft drinks—and Coca-Cola wants to make the most of it in a very personal way with the “Share a Coke” campaign, launching across Europe this month.

“This month we’re swapping our names with yours,” proclaims the world’s leading soft drink in a concept that has a country’s most popular names showing up on Coca-Cola bottle labels. In Great Britain, for example, Coke bottles on shelves this summer will feature 150 of the UK’s most popular names.
