Coca-Cola Xmas truck to tour Britain

cokelore_santa_toys_cutout While the loudest people on the internet are too cool, and too cynical to enjoy Christmas, the majority of people can't wait to see the unofficial signifier of the Yuletide - the Coca-Cola truck. Even if you hate the blasted thing, the mere mention of it earworms you with 'holidays are coming, holidays are coming...'.

Well, the big red Coke truck is going to be touring these shores in the build-up to Christmas, presumably giving away free stuff as they go.

It'll stop at 46 locations around the country, and will almost certainly be an Instagram opportunity for fans of Christmas.

    Advertising at its disgusting best, what a crock of shit

    Since when has christmas been about this shit? Anyone looking forward to seeing the coke truck arrive in their town should probably be run over by it.

    But its a 'm a g i c' truck. It is in Newquay and Glasgow on the same day. Just like Santa (isn't)

    I'm not too cynical and you'd be hard pushed to find anyone who thinks I'm cool, I just think people who look forward to being advertised at are sad bastards. Same with the people genuinely interested in the "premiere" of the John Lewis ad. It's icky, like watching someone eat bugs. Technically there's nothing wrong with it, but you can't help but feel there might be something wrong with *them* for being so willing.

    Unofficial signifier of the Yuletide? Ridiculous "tradition". Besides, it's a LORRY not a TRUCK, please.

What do you think?
