The Coca-Cola 'Mini-Me' campaign transformed customers into miniature versions of themselves. The promotion focused on raising awareness for Coca-Cola's new miniature bottles while increasing brand loyalty in Israel. Winning participants were scanned and 3D-printed using the latest scanning technology. Those who were chosen were invited to the Coca-Cola factory to be scanned. Winners were placed on a rotating pedestal in a temporary lab while they struck a pose. Miniature versions of the winners were then printed in a lab constructed for the contest.

Ad agency Gefen Team created the promotion to accompany the launch of Coca-Cola's miniature bottles. Users could download an app and create their own digital mini-me. The digital version could be completely customized and animated by the user to dance, eat food and drink Coca-Cola. Winners were then chosen from the participants.
