New Coke- Stranger Things

Coca-Cola, the drink, should never change. And because of that, Coca-Cola, the brand is constantly finding new ways to be fresh and relevant in culture. So partnering with Stranger Things 3 made perfect sense. But there was one problem. The show is set in the summer of 1985. The backdrop for Coke’s biggest ever marketing disaster: New Coke. This is the story of how Coca-Cola turned a failure into a triumph. And how the drink that was so famously rejected by culture in 1985 was embraced by it in 2019.

Autism Speaks aims to lower the average age of screening and diagnosis for children with autism, a key factor in optimizing outcomes. To overcome the emotional hurdles that keep some parents from taking early detection measures, we needed to speak in a familiar, accepting voice. So we partnered with Sesame Street and their ground-breaking Muppet Julia, to show not just the benefits of early detection, but the wonder that comes when you understand a child with autism – and increased usage of Autism Speaks' early screening tools by 60%.
