4. Brian Lanahan, then-manager of special projects for Coke, told “Time Magazine” that they also went with the name OK because “It underpromises. It doesn’t say, ‘This is the next great thing.’ It’s the flip side of overclaiming.”
6. Zyman created a non-traditional ad campaign in response to perceptions that Gen X’ers were cynical and disillusioned. Capitalizing on it, OK’s slogan was “Things are going to be OK”, and they even set-up a hotline 1-800-I-FEEL-OK.
