Qoo launched in Singapore in July 2001.
Very little is known about the origins of the cute character Qoo (pronounced "koo"). It is said that the product name connotes the exclamation of pleasure many adult Japanese utter after downing a thirst-quenching beer. Coca-Cola believes that even children will learn to make the "Qoo" sound to show their satisfaction after drinking Qoo.
The Qoo drinker is someone who enjoys spending time with her friends, but enjoys daydreaming and living a carefree lifestyle, unburdened by life’s little troubles. The Qoo drinker is optimistic, vibrant, and walks with a spring in her step. She is envied by others for her eternally youthful outlook and joie de vivre.
