FIFA Video Game Star Endorses Coke In New Video Ad

September 20, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Coca-Cola has landed an endorsement from Electronic Arts virtual soccer star Alex Hunter, who is making a comeback with Major League Soccer’s L.A. Galaxy after a lackluster stint with the English Premier League. A FIFA video goes behind the scenes when the spot – based loosely on the iconic Mean Joe Greene Coke ad of the late 1970s – is filmed with some digital age updates. The company will place the video in social media using paid ad support and show it on Coke's Times Square billboard.
