Once again Coca-Cola wants to teach the world to sing, this time with the help of rapper G Love and the song Chilltop, which is a remake of their famous 1971 Hilltop ad, where young people were singing the Coke anthem, I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing [In Perfect Harmony], on a hilltop. The song was later recorded by The New Seekers and became an international hit.

Coca-Cola are hoping the new version, I'd Like To Teach The World To Chill [Take Time To Stop And Smile], will have a similar instant connection with today's teens and young adults. This time the drink is Coca-Cola Zero, a zero-calorie soft drink. Will things go better with Coke?

This week we offer 20 variations of the Coke theme before I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing. This Coke campaign, Things Go Better With Coke, stretched from 1966 to 1969 and covered an entire generation of the coolest acts from pop to country, rock to soul.

These Coca-Cola commercials have never been released before and are unique and different from each other.
