Coca-Cola Life TVC revealed: Coke travels to Norfolk Island to ‘surprise’ residents with new product

Coca-Cola South Pacific has revealed its Australian TVC for its new Coca-Cola Life green cola.

Based on the ‘Let Life Surprise You’ core creative, the new ad shows the company delivering its first Australian batch of the new drink to remote Norfolk Island, the community “least likely to expect” they’d be part of the major brand’s new product launch.

“With the launch of Coca-Cola Life, we want to intrigue, educate and engage consumers, and show that Coca-Cola will travel near and far to ensure our products are available for everyone,” said Lisa Winn, Coca-Cola South Pacific marketing director.

Norfolk Island is one of Australia’s most remote communities, 1412 kilometres east of the mainland with a population of about 2000.

The TVC rolls out today across TV, digital, cinema and mobile.

The TVC follows the same concept as a video the brand released from Norway earlier this year, dubbed ‘Our smallest launch yet’, when it delivered that country’s first batch of Coca-Cola Life to a remote fishing village with just 307 inhabitants.



Coca-Cola Life contains natural sweetener stevia, which replaces 35% of the sugar found in ordinary Coke. The company says it created the new product to “shake up the category” in-line with its commitment to address obesity issues.
