When clothing giant Old Navy turned 20 they created what they coined the “Selfiebration Machine”.

We all know the iconic Coca-Cola bottle. When Coca-Cola celebrated 100 years of their famous bottle, they also wanted to celebrate 100 years of togetherness.

When our pals over at Diageo throw a birthday party, they don’t hold back.
