The Super Bowl was a year filled with awesome movie trailers and advertisements. These included awesome new TV spots for Captain America: Civil War and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. One of the more memorable out of these was the Coke advertisement which featured two Avengers, Ant-Man and The Hulk-in a chase around New York for a can of Coke.
This ad campaign was followed by a viral competition which included the grand prize of a Mini Cooper! Within the ad, there were coordinates which led to Bruce Banner's lab (A Park in Los Angles) . One Reddit user was keen enough to actually show up to the park but was apparently early and the contest hosts were unprepared, which cost him the Mini-Cooper prize.
What Happened To His Grand Prize?
So according to the Reddit user, after he cracked the clue of the coordinates he was not informed that there was another clue that he had to figure out.
"So I was following the viral marketing for the coke/marvel ad that played during the Super Bowl last night and coordinates pointed to Griffith Park, somewhere I live very close to. I drove up and arrived at a parking lot with an RV and a red mini cooper. Someone was filming me as I was trying to figure out what I needed to do next and the host told me to wait, so I sat 15 mins thinking he'd give me follow up info. When he gave me no such thing I began searching around the park thinking it would be hidden, only to find nothing. After an hour of searching, someone pulls up and yells "Make it Mini"
They won the car. I was so confused that it wasn't until after did I realize this host screwed me over. The final clue was a snapchat vid that he made after I had already arrived. Rather than telling me there was another clue, he told me to wait. Had I not trusted him and tried looking for more info online, I could have probably won the car 30 mins before anyone arrived. I left salty, calling coca-cola and filing a report just so I could have my voice heard. It's a bummer I came so close to winning something only to be misled at the end."
Was This The Host's Fault?
You can look at this one of two ways. You could say that the host was only being fair to everyone else and not revealing that there was another hint, or you could say that it was unfair because the Reddit user thought he won the contest. I could only imagine how it feels to think you have a brand new Mini-Cooper in the palm of your hands just to have it snatched up by a misunderstanding. This sounds a lot like something that happened this past year...
