Coca-Cola Zero Latin America has launched “Invasion”, the second instalment in the animated “Happy Kingdom” advertising campaign. The first in the series, “Happy Kingdom”, released in September 2009, showed a melancholic king whose joy is restored through Coke Zero. In “Invasion” the Happy Kingdom’s army repels an invasion of insectoids with Coke Zero and music. “Disfrutar Sin Limites Es Posible” is translated in English as “Unlimited Joy is Possible”.
