Ogilvy Berlin comes up small

"It's the little things in life that make us happy." That's the message in this print and outdoor Coca-Cola campaign from Ogilvy & Mather Berlin, and it's true in advertising generally. Unusually little things tend to get big props—whether you're talking doll houses, mini Abe Lincolns or tiny billboards.

Ogilvy placed these mini kiosks in five major German cities. They sold mini cans of Coke, which was the whole point, but also various other miniature products. They even had a pint-size vending machine. The kiosks sold an average of 380 mini cans per day, which Ogilvy says is 278 percent more than a typical Coke vending machine.
