Coca-Cola Polar Bears

Visitors to the World of Coke in Atlanta, Georgia can pose for pictures with the 7-foot Coca-Cola bear.

Just a few fun facts:
  • The first polar bear to appear in Coca-Cola print ads made an appearance in France in 1922.

  • The polar bear character was created by Ken Stewart and was inspired by his Labrador retriever puppy who resembled a polar bear.

  • In the first animated polar bear commercial, the Coca-Cola bears are watching the Northern lights as if it were a movie.

  • In 1994 Olympic game ads, the Coca-Cola bears slid down a luge and skiied off a ski jump.
