Following on from Coca-Cola’s personalised ‘share a Coke’ campaign, Irn-Bru has taken a leaf out of the soft drink giant’s ad book.

Fantastic response to a tacky original idea. All sorts of puns are being bandied about at this very second I have no doubt. Well done Barrs.

On a separate note Drum, can we have a LinkedIn share button on articles please?
