Contest: Coca Cola Any Concert Anywhere in the World: 30 Winners to Rock, Dance and Roll!

February 25, 2011
I have bought these nice Coca Cola cards from Ebay out of boredom. I saw that they were selling at Php10 starting bid, so I placed a bid on each card just because I am bored and I want to have that shopping hype again, and luckily I won!
I was planning to have them framed, but I am already drowning with too much tasks, errands and commitments, I have totally forgotten that I have these precious cards until I stepped foot in The Real Thing Diner. The Real Thing Diner is a Coca Cola inspired diner which looks like a Coca Cola Museum. It is just a perfect place to hold the Blogger Event/Launching of the Coke Anywhere Concert Promo.
So the event started with the host asking bloggers, what excites us? If only I would given the chance to hold the mic, I would tell the audience that booking a fligh excites me the mostt! It means, packing my stuff, meeting new people, going to places, exploring culture, eating new dishes, shopping and cam-whoring!
So our favorite Coco Cola has cooked (or should I say, has mixed?) a new contest that would literally excite all contestants! The prize is not just cash, not just a ticket to the concert, and not just a trip but a 3d/2n vacation to anywhere in the world where you want to watch the concert of your favorite artist!
The most exciting thing is that there would be one winner everyday from March 1 to March 31! You can choose to wiggle your waist with Shakira in Buenos Aires, raise your hands for Usher in Germany, feel the noise and not just hear the music of Deftones in Canada, fall inlove all over again for Westlife in Liverpool, or dance with the Glee Cast in London!
To help you decide on which artist/band to watch, here’s the artist listing:
Sean Kingston
Mike Posner
Kings of Leon
David Archuleta
Foo Fighters
Glee Cast
The Script
Local Concerts:
April 8 – Bruno Mars LIVE in Manila @ SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds
May 16 – Asking Alexandria @Amoranto Theater
