It seems like advertisers are getting increasingly innovative in their approach to getting the word out. First there is Denmark's Generous Store that hands out gourmet chocolate in exchange for good deeds and now a 'Hug Me' vending machine that dispenses free coke cola in exchange for, you guessed it . . . . . . .  A hug!

The vending machine that was recently installed at the National University of Singapore is the brainchild of advertising and marketing company Ogilvy & Mather, and is part of Coca Cola's new marketing initiative called 'Open Happiness'

To emanate this joyful emotion, the machine has the words 'Hug Me' written in lieu of a Coke Cola Ad. When a human fulfills that wish by wrapping his/her arms around it, the machine returns the favor by dispensing a chilled can of coke! Judging by the delighted squeals from the students, the machine is definitely creating a ton of 'Open Happiness' on the University campus.
