"Buy the World a Coke" Hilltop Coca-Cola commercial first aired in the USA in 1971.
The commercial features a multicultural collection of teenagers, portraying a positive message of hope and love.
The jingle proved so popular it was recorded as a single by The Hillside Singers, and later by The New Seekers as a full length song "I'd like to Teach the World to Sing" with all Coke references dropped. The song was a hit and both groups had success with the single.
In the mid seventies, another version of the commercial was filmed
for the Christmas holiday season.
Might all seem abit hearts and flowers for some.
But I reckon the world could do with a bit of hearts and flowers at the moment.
And besides that, I like it when someone buys me a Coke and keeps me company.
I like it very much. Coke is it.
