Through the campaign Coke Zero challenged unsuspecting train passengers to unlock the 007 in them. The prize at the other end was a chance to win exclusive tickets for Skyfall, But to actually win the tickets people had to go the extra mile and unlock their inner 007 in less than 70 seconds to win.
