Holidays are coming… and so is the Coca-Cola truck!
November 8, 2016
For many people, Christmas doesn’t really start until they catch a glimpse of the iconic Coca-Cola truck. This year, you can do one better than waiting for the advert to appear on your television screen, as the Coca-Cola truck is once again taking a festive road trip around the UK. Setting off on November 17th, the yuletide lorry will take in 44 locations right across Britain.
Lucky Scottish residents will be some of the first to see the festive truck this year. After setting off from London, the truck will make its way straight up to Scotland to spread three days of festive cheer. The first destination for the truck is Glasgow’s Silverburn Centre on Friday 18th November. Next up is a visit to Ayr’s Burns Statue Square on Saturday 19th November, before the truck winds its way to the Overgate Shopping Centre in Dundee on Sunday 20th November.
With the visits falling over the weekend, it’s the perfect time to wrap up warm and take the kids to see the impressive illuminated truck. On all three dates the truck will be stationed from 1pm-9pm, ensuring you have plenty of time to get the family together and make a full day of the festivities.
During your visit you’ll have the chance to stroll through a magical winter wonderland, before stopping to see the iconic truck up close and have your photograph taken. The Coca-Cola team will also be on hand to give you a free can of Coca-Cola, Diet Coke or Coca-Cola Zero. When the night draws, in a short Christmas animation will be screened onto the truck, powered by spectators’ ‘goodwill and festive cheer!’
If you can’t make it to the selected locations, you will be able to see the truck on your television screens when the famous ‘Holidays Are Coming’ advert returns this festive season, 21 years since its first airing in November 1995.The advert is now a mainstay of Christmas TV in more than 100 countries around the world and for many, marks the start of the unofficial countdown to the big day.
