Thanks for such an interesting question.

The commercial is definitely a fake one. Using “Visual Effects”, such
commercials are done. The effects are given in such a way that they
look realistic.

Method Studios created this commercial for Coca Cola. Here is the url
where you can get info about the team who developed this commercial

i do think this is good evidence, but only evidence that its a
commercial.  the visual effects could be the logo and effects at the
end of the commercial.  nowhere on that page does it say that its
actually "faked," as far as the ball hits the ground.

I called up "Method Studios" and talked to Rich. Since he was not
involved in that commercial, he forwarded the call to Mark Tobin, who
was the producer for this particular commercial. Unfortunately, he was
out for lunch. I've left a voice mail with my contact number. As soon
as I hear any thing from him, I'll update you.
May be then you can change my ratings.

its my first time rating an answer.  While I do think you did some
good research, I do not agree teh research is conclusive.   Hence, a 3
out of 5.  i would give a four out of five for 90% clarity, and a five
out of five for anythign else.  is this bad style of rating?  and you
do understand, it didnt' fully answer the question.

Finally I got hold of Mark Tobin, producer of that commercial, and
according to him, the shot was a Real one. He got that tape from
someone but he did say that it was a real shot. He did some color
editing and other graphics thing, but no changes were made to the
actual film.

I hope this answers your question completely. 

Thanks once again for this interesting question.
