We all love a selfie, right?! Well, our family do anyway! Here is one we took when we were at Soar Mill Cove recently.
With the advent of selfie sticks, we no longer need to do an impression of Mr Tickle or Inspector Gadget – Grace is very excited and looking forward to putting ours into practice whilst we are away.
To celebrate its Choose Happiness campaign, Coca-Cola recently worked with renowned picture agency Getty Images on some research. Asked to click on photographs that made them smile, people were found to be more likely to smile at an image of a cat than at a shot of a dog. Images featuring babies made less people smile than those featuring animals. But a squirrel shot was the one that made most people smile.
As you can see from the image, it is layered with at least five psychological factors that have been proven to have a positive effect on the viewer.
Another image that seems to make us happy is the selfie. An estimated 93 million (study by Google 2014) selfies are taken every day, making them more popular than ever. But capturing the perfect shot isn’t always easy and so Coca-Cola is giving us all helping hand this summer and giving you the chance to win one of up to one million selfie sticks on their special promotional packs.
The Coca-Cola selfie stick takes inspiration from the iconic Coca-Cola contour bottle and is designed to perfectly capture all those happy summer moments. Extending to nearly a meter in length, a smart button in the handle allows you to take selfies with ease.
To be in with a chance to win simply purchase a promotional 500ml bottle of Coca-Cola (offer available across all variants), go online and enter the promotional code into the draw. Prizes will be allocated randomly and the best bit is if you win you find out instantly. The full terms and conditions for this offer can be found over on their website.
