Coke Zero Dance Hero Dance Off Contest

Why Dance with a Hero When You Can Dance with a Zero

This is a sponsored post brought to you by Coca-Cola Zero and IZEA. The opinions are my own.

If you’ve ever seen the Coke Zero commercials on TV, then you’ll no doubt know about the two main characters, the tongue and the eyeball. The two are always at odds with each other, with the tongue insisting that the Coke Zero its tasting was real Coke. The eyeball, being able to see, knows that the tongue is really drinking Coke Zero. There’s also a brain in one of the commercials but he’s kind of secondary. Who needs a brain anyway? 😛

Unable to see eye to eye (since the tongue has no eye), the tongue and the eyeball decided to settle things once and for all in the same way that all problems of the world should be settled. With a dance off!

Do You Have The Moves?

Coca-Cola Zero Dance Hero is an online game created by iCoke.ca to help promote Coke Zero, a drink that taste just like regular Coke but with zero calories. The object of the game is out dance your opponent by racking up more points.

Game play is pretty simple but does require a level of skill and practice to get a good score. Below is a video of my first attempt at the game. My score was pretty low and I’m sure many of you will be able to beat it.

I got better on the fourth try and registered a high score of 48,221. Can you beat that?

Coek Zero Dance Hero

I played the tongue on all the games because I felt it had much better dance moves than the eyeball. However, the eyeball’s moon walk was pretty good! My scores were low in the first few tries because I was being distracted by a tongue and eyeball dancing on the screen. It made hitting the bull eye harder than it should be. After winning the dance off against the eyeball, I witnessed an awesome finishing move as the tongue threw it down on the eyeball.

Overall, the game is a lot of fun, especially for young people. Sally absolutely loved the game. I need to post a video of her dancing to it.

    The gameplay looks nearly identical to Elite Beat Agents and Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan on the DS.

    1. I’ve personally never heard of this game, but I will agree that the graphics definitely look unique – it’s not like its just an exact replication of the TV commercial characters – almost a less detailed version

      It actually kinda bugs me to be honest lol I wish they were rendered clearer!!

      1. Haha could not agree with you more Taris. Why don’t they make it some what unique. Seen such stuff on many adverts.

    2. Just call it Elite Beat Agents you geek!

      1. Michael Kwan says:

        Elite Beat Agents was the American game with American songs, but the original — Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan — is a different game with Japanese songs and characters.

      2. Guess you didn’t know about the Japanese version?!

  2. Hah!! Sweet!! This seems like the most entertaining contest ever!! Definitely entering!! Thanks John!! and congrats on the big time sponsor!!

  3. J.D. Meier says:

    The tongues a bit scary at first, but turns out to be pretty cool.

    Lots of moves to learn from.

    1. It would be cool just to take it outside with the friends or at the beach….

    2. Enter the competition – it could be yours 😉

    3. Tushar says:

      I agree, but it can only hold 6 cokes?

      I have friends who drink more than that in a hour. And yes, I know, they’re disturbed.

    1. Theres a competition, reply to John via Twitter to be entered 😉

  4. Must Play This Game. For some reason.

  5. jtGraphic says:

    You should do a post about how you got the sponsorship 🙂

  6. What’s a message center, John?

  7. Eric Tan says:

  12. Melissa says:

    I’m still deciding if I want to play this game. Nothing against you, John–I would love to win the Coke fridge! It’s the tongue. It’s disturbing.

    1. jim says:

      Yeah it’s a little creepy… somehow the eyeball was fine, maybe it’s the Mike Wozowski factor from Monsters Inc 🙂

  13. lol… cool game.
    i am in.. let me make some good score.

    “You can earn a third entry by sending the following tweet to your Twitter followers.”

    FYI…If you send a tweet that starts with an “@” 99% of your followers will never see it.

      1. Walt says:

        Do you use Twitter? It’s pretty obvious. Most people turn off seeing @Replies in their stream unless they’re directed at them. So if you start a tweet with @JohnChowDotCom almost nobody (besides John) will see it unless they happening to be looking at directly at your profile page. It won’t show up in the streams of your followers.

  15. Gonna lay off the game, but I gotta say it don’t taste nothin’ like real coke. 😉

  16. Pheak Tol says:

    wow…the music is pretty cool tho and the beat makes you wanna get up and do something yourself.

  17. Alex Terry says:

    I Wish there was multi-player options…. I would take you down John 🙂

  18. hehe..that funny! 😀

  19. GP says:

    Wow. That tongue is something else. Not sure how I feel about a dancing tongue. So many things could be said, but I digress. I have to say though that it looks like fun!

  20. Pam says:

    Okey the tongue is a bit gross looking LOL

  21. game-girl says:

    The tongue is looking so enticing in the gastranomical sence.

  22. My score is so lousy it’s embarrassing to even post it! I took a screenshot and wrote a post though:

    http://boatinginbeautifulbritishcolumbia.com/2008/12/31/john-chow-coke-zero-dance-hero/

    The cooler is really cute, but I want to see those ‘jammies’!

    🙂

  23. So is are going to be winner(s) or just a winner? Your statements are kind of unclear because you state all the prizes together and not with the word “or”.

    -Mike

  24. Toy Store says:

    This is just GROSS!!! That tongue scares me. LOL.

  25. I loved the game and made a score of 160k something… Sorry couldn’t take a screenshot since I was going somewhere and was already late.. But anyways.. I’ll play the game again and beat my yesterdays score! 😀 Cheers!

  26. Oh my gosh! Reminds me of my clubbing days in San Jose…hey John, are you familiar with the old Pollyesther’s, the Usual, Club Wild, Toonz, etc., in downtown?

    I used to work in Sunnyvale for Loudcloud, the Mark Andreessen startup, back in 2000 and was regularly seen at those places…wow, now I’m 30 and haven’t been to a club in who knows how long! 😛

  27. game-girl says:

    At any age people should visit the clubs to feel oneself young and positive.
