I’d like to teach the world to sing

An interesting (if slightly wordy) article in AdWeek about how old commercials are being remade and reprised, to mixed results.

In particular, Coke’s legendary Hilltop ad has been remade with a modern twist some months back. See new ad here.

The original ad, together with a great story of how it came to be, can be found here.

When i was a little kid, I remember seeing a version of this during Christmas with the same jingle but with the singers sitting to form a huge human Christmas tree. Anyone remember this?
