Coca Cola Has Changed Its Christmas Advert And People Aren't Happy

Coca Cola Has Changed Its Christmas Advert And People Aren't Happy

Forget the John Lewis advert, it's bollocks. Yes, in recent years it's become somewhat of a stamp on the Christmas period, but as far as festive advertisements are concerned, there's only one winner - we're talking about Coca-Cola's, of course.

For many, many years, seeing the soft drink's truck drive through the busy, snowy streets, with old St Nick perched on top of it has symbolised the beginning of Christmas. There's just something about the words "holidays are coming," that send you right back to childhood.

However, this year someone has subtlety changed the advert, but they've done so in such a way that it's pissing people off.

You can't mess around with people's heads at this time of year. Terry's Chocolate Oranges are apparently smaller, Toblerones have changed, and Mingles (remember Mingles?) just decided they'd shut up shop back in 2011 without so much of a goodbye. Now this.

Anything stick out that annoys you or you think is different?

Well, people have had their pigs taken out of their blankets because the ad no longer features Santa on the back of the truck winking and then taking a swig from the zesty drink.

Coca-Cola Releases Emotional Christmas Advert

Evidently, a lot of people thought of the wink as the best part of the advert.

Either way, the official countdown to Christmas has begun, which means pretty soon, just about everything can be justified by saying: 'Come on, it's Christmas'.

For example, when you're missus says: 'For fuck's sake, it's 11am on Sunday and you're pissed!', just shoot her a quick: 'Come on, it's Christmas'. She can't do anything.
