Coca-Cola has taken over Clapham Common Tube station. The high-impact campaign, created by Vizeum, Posterscope, Mother and CBS Outdoor, involves the creative running across all the station's escalator panels and the wall of the building.
- What's in it for commuters?
Travelling on the Tube, and the Northern Line in particular, is never a pleasant experience.

- What's in it for advertisers?

After spending any length of time on the hot and stuffy Tube, it is likely that many travellers will welcome the idea of an ice-cold drink.
