Coca Cola cancels 2020 truck tour due to coronavirus

Some people say you only know it’s Christmas when you see the Coca Cola advert for the first time.

The famous image of the truck driving through the snow to the tune of ‘Holidays are coming’ has been part of the festive season since 1995.

And usually, Coca Cola tours a truck like the one in the advert around the UK, with an event in each town for people to celebrate in the build-up to the big day.

But sadly, this year, the tour has been cancelled due to coronavirus.

Releasing a statement on Twitter, the brand said: ‘In light of further Covid-19 restrictions announced around the country and in line with Government guidelines, unfortunately, we can’t go ahead with our annual Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour this year.

‘We know this will be disappointing for many people, but our priority is the safety of our consumers and employees.

‘We really look forward to welcoming people back next year when the Truck Tour returns.’

Hundreds of fans responded to the post to say how sad they were about having to miss out this year.

One said: ‘Noooo it’s the official start to Christmas for us, never mind, look forward to the advert though.’

Another added: ‘It’s not christmas without the Coca Cola truck! I guess we will make do with the adverts then.’

Others suggested that the company should drive it past schools and hospitals to provide a little cheer during this bleak year.

Luckily, the brand said that the much-loved advert would be back on our televisions soon, so the holidays are still coming.
