Coca-Cola’s first new film since the Covid-19 breakout centers around family and food.

In their new global campaign,“Together Tastes Better”, this launch film, titled “The Great Meal” conveys the brand’s optimistic take on this shared experience, celebrating some of the silver linings of the time we have spent together over meals and around the table. Around the world, people have come to re-appreciate the things that matter most and take that gratitude and humility with us moving forward.

The film was shot remotely in the midst of global Covid-19 lockdowns. It showcases 13 real families, couples, housemates in households from Orlando, Shanghai, Lisbon, Kiev, London, Mumbai, and Mexico City. The families in the film cook the foods of their cultures and share an often-overlooked, moment of togetherness.

This anthemic film that will run from June 29th in the US and in a myriad of countries including Germany, Spain, Morocco, France, most Asian countries, and India, among others, in the next weeks and months.

The film was directed by Kim Gehrig, produced by Somesuch with support of PIG in China.

​Move along LV, your 15 minutest of glory is indubitably and irrevocably over——but still, be sure to call if you need to shoot something.

Shanghai has taken the over-sized, anatomically, uh, questionable blow-up dragons and she’s boarded them up in a broom closet down the long hallway of repressed [sic] memories.

From the looks of Saturday night’s social media feeds of Shanghai’s who’s whos, we have definitive proof that on 8/8, this belle of a town belonged to the PIGman.

Below a recap of our most glorious and triumphant moments from PIG’s pool-side BBQ, Shanghai Sessions 2020: No Cannes, No problem!
