Coca-Cola gets people to 'put on a smile' for its wearable movie

Coca-Cola sent out hundreds of t-shirts to social media fans, staff and creative partners and asked them to upload a photo of themselves wearing the shirt to create the world's first "wearable movie".

Each t-shirt was printed with a single frame from an animated short about a pair of friends and their attempts to make a giant pair of lips smile.

Each recipient received instructions to upload a photo of themselves wearing the shirt to a website. The campaign had 100% participation and all the frames were stitched together to make the finished film.
