A Marijuana Parody Song
Coca-Cola and cannabis share a common thread, they both bring people together. The community-driven aspect they share was the inspiration for Buy the World a Toke. That, and the one letter difference between “Coke” and “toke,” just made this parody an obvious choice.
The focus on coming together was also our inspiration to create a video that includes a bunch of faces from the cannabis community. Like sharing a Coca-Cola, the act of passing a vaporizer or bowl is a little way of saying “let’s keep each other company for a while” and just enjoy the moment.

The Iconic Hilltop Commercial
Whether you remember it originally airing in the 70s or became familiar through the hit series Mad Men, you’ve likely seen the ad. The Hilltop Commercial, as it’s known, features 500+ people standing on a mountain singing along to the lyrics “I’d like to buy the world a coke”.
It is easily considered one of the most recognizable advertisements of all time. If you’ve somehow eluded it for the last 50 years, check out the full story of Bill Backer to learn how it came about.
