Coke-slurping Danish cinema-goers unwittingly appear on silver screen

Danish cinema-goers are surprised to see themselves appearing in the background of a short period-style drama, noisily slurping their Cokes and munching on popcorn, in a promotional stunt for Coca-Cola.

Creative agency Saatchi & Saatchi Denmark came up with the concept behind "The Coca-Cola Slurp", which saw cinemagoers going to see 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' filmed secretly in the cinema foyer and then superimposed into a pre-movie short, that includes steamy romantic scenes.

"Please keep quiet during the movie," the endline says. "It’s not the same with you in it."

Coke has produced a video of the film and making-of, which includes the cinema audience’s reactions to appearing on the silver screen.
