In a sure sign the festive season is well and truly underway, the yuletide lorry has set off on a trip that takes in 42 stops across the UK.
Coca-Cola has revealed its famous Christmas truck tour dates – and it’s coming to Scotland first.
Now in its seventh year, the iconic tour will kick off at Glasgow ‘s Silverburn on November 11 for one of two Scottish dates.
The truck, which boasts 8772 fairylights and plays the Holidays Are Coming jingle will then make 42 stops across the UK.
At each stop, fans can project festive selfies across the side of the truck.
They will also be able to pick up a 150ml can of Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, Diet Coke or Coca-Cola Classic.
Every truck stop will also include a recycling call-to-action, encouraging consumers to recycle bottles and cans in line with Coca-Cola’s recent ‘Love Story’ recycling advert.
Over the last seven years, the truck has travelled more than 730,000 miles – the equivalent of 29 times around the world.
Aedamar Howlett, marketing director for Coca-Cola Great Britain said: “Coca-Cola is synonymous with the Christmas season and it’s no secret that our much-loved Christmas Truck Tour marks the unofficial countdown to Christmas.
“We can’t wait to start spreading holiday cheer and we are excited to announce a brand new route for 2017 – which brings a sprinkling of festive magic to fans across the UK.”
