This Coca-Cola World Cup ad was made in Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia

VIETNAM - Phibious of Vietnam has created a Coca-Cola World Cup ad that was shot in Thailand and Malaysia (among other countries) and will air in 126 nations.

The work focuses on love of the game among teenagers, who chase a football on a global journey of diversity and smiles fueled by Coke.

Leonardo O'Grady, ASEAN director of integrated marketing and communications for The Coca-Cola Company, said the production of the ad, like the World Cup itself, brought together people from all over the world, including Vietnam, Argentina, USA, Ireland, Mexico, South Africa, Singapore and Greece. "It is amazing to see the passion people feel for football and the unifying power that the love for the game has," he said. "Those are shared values with Coke and are at the heart of this film."

Nicole Marold, Phibious' executive director and project lead, said taking on a campaign of such importance and scale was invigorating. Claire Davidson, executive producer for Asia and MENA with The Sweet Shop, which produced the film, added that it's wonderful to see creative for such an important event and brand coming out of Vietnam.
