Cosleeping in a Coca-Cola Commercial

I’m not a Coca-Cola fan for all sorts of reasons, but I’m thrilled to see cosleeping represented in this new Coke ad from Argentina. And I’m wondering if the fact that Coca-Cola included cosleeping in the ad reflects a move toward the normalization of cosleeping or if it simply reflects a difference in sleeping practices between the United States and Argentina?

  1. Such a good ad!! Curious how you found out about it Brian. In Europe we have this festival call The Night of Ad Eaters, that tours big cities on the continent. It lasts all night and it shows ads from all around the world, divided by categories. You’d think it’s boring to pay money to go to a movie theater and watch ads all night long, but the ads are curated by a team of creatives, to represent trends in different parts of the world, different kinds of humor or even how big brands like Ikea or Coca Cola create completely different ads for different countries. Really amazing, fun and entertaining.

  2. Of course, this IS a Coke ad… and the damages (in terms of health, cultural and economic autonomy…) done worldwide by this most mega of mega-conglomerate’s extraordinarily aggressive marketing far, far outweigh WHATEVER they depict (with the intent to garner more sales in a sector they’d typically be less attractive

  3. I just saw a US sleep number bed advert that shows bed-sharing. It’s with an older child, not sure if that’s better or worse (no risk of SIDS, but most people expect older children to have their own beds).
