Leading up to the show, Coca-Cola is asking fans via Twitter to help create the new Coca-Cola AHHcade experience on the red carpet. Each week, fans can weigh in on items they want to see featured in the AHHcade, such as the Coca-Cola polar bear, a Coca-Cola interactive vending machine and a vintage Pac-Man game for artists to sign that will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Participants will be entered for the chance to win tickets to the 2015 AMAs, as well as a $500 Visa gift card when they tweet to help plan the new Coca-Cola AHHcade. Follow @TheAMAs on Twitter to join the conversation & find out how to win.
