Wayne Hemingway singles out Coke's 'small world machines' as creative highlight of 2013

Description

The enmity between India and Pakistan is broken down using a Coca-Cola vending machine that acts as a live communications portal between the two nations.

"Small World Machines" encouraged people to put their differences aside and complete a friendly task including waving, touching hands or drawing a peace sign in order to receive a Coke.
