Share a Coke

Coke_edit_crop_2This morning I shared a Coke zero with Katja. I have no idea who Katja is but thanks to Hewlett-Packard Indigo printers and mass customization I was able to share a Coke zero with her. If you know Katja, please let her know that I enjoyed my Coke.

    Saw this in Australia last year when I visited! Fun.

  2. Now imagine if there was Katja’s face along with her name….

    Hi, I’m Katja and I really want to know how you found my name cause I can’t find it anywhere!

    I randomly picket up the bottle at a 7-11 in downtown Copenhagen. I assume Katja is one of the 150 most popular names in Denmark since that is how Coke is running the promotion.
