We’ve already seen the John Lewis Ad and so we know Christmas is well and truly on its way, but for some, it’s just not Christmas until the first sighting of the Coca-Cola Christmas advert, which is due this year to debut on Saturday 8th November during the break on X Factor. The new-look ad opens with a scene featuring the iconic Coca-Cola Father Christmas and a number of different acts of kindness through various experiences with friends, families and amongst strangers set to the heart-warming ‘Make Someone Happy’ soundtrack by Jimmy Durante.
Coca-Cola are continuing with the Christmas Truck Tour, which this year, will stop at Asda Havant in Bedhampton on the 19th December 2014 between 1 pm and 9 pm. On each stop, people have the chance to take pictures with the truck as it lights up (just like the advert), whilst enjoying a snowy winter wonderland setting and a refreshing Coca-Cola or Diet Coke as a choir sings Christmas hits.
You can also send a digital greetings card with Coca-Cola this year, taking the form of a personalised video message to family and friends. Just visit the Make a Wish page, to create and send a Christmas Wish to a loved one by truck, elf, bottle or magic. And if you are so minded, you can also buy a limited edition glass ‘Ribbon’ bottle with a label that transforms into a bow. Share a coke with… 500ml bottles will also be available featuring the names of our favourite reindeers, including Rudolph (yes I know, not one of the eight), Dancer and Blitzen.
