For every happy emoji icon that you'll find on a keyboard, there's a billboard to match for this Coca-Cola marketing stunt. The campaign from Coca-Cola Puerto Rico involved registering every happy emoji with a .ws domain, because .com, .net or .org addresses, are not compatible with emojis. If you were to follow these links on your phone, you'd eventually be directed to the Emoticoke website, which gives you the chance to create your own emoiji-filled web address including more fun icons like palm trees, stars and slices of pizza.
Considering that you can't help but to wonder where the web addresses on the curious billboards will lead you, this is a great way to target a tech-savvy Millennials that always have a phone in hand.
