nice free advert for a huge multinational that I'm sure can afford to pay. A multinational that was happy to invest in Nazi Germany by the way. How about investigating the amount of sugar you poison yourself with when you drink a coke? That would be a worthwhile news story.

You need to sit there in your wrongness and be wrong as you are so wrong you are the Mayor of Wrong Town. I would strongly urge you to read up on the link between Father Christmas and the Fly Agaric and you will then find out why he wears red and white and that contrary to urban legend it's not down to Coca Cola!

Here's a link from snopes.com disproving that:

But then, why let the facts get in the way of a good story? Another case of opening mouth before engaging brain....as only the Brits can.

And informing local people that it's going to be at a specific venue so that they can go and see it if they want isn't a job for a local newspaper? keeping locals informed? Or should they just report on it after it's been so that no one knows where it will be?

If a big red truck is going to make you drink something that causes all of those problems then you're very weak willed. Plus firemen are really done for as they're around big red trucks all day long. On the other hand as I neither drink alcohol or smoke I'm pretty sure I have the strength of character to stop at one can of fizzy pop!

I would suggest that enormous bottles of coca cola should replace Christmas trees as decorative focal points throughout the nation.
At least we will have an annual reminder of how pathetic this time of year has become.
And yes you'll find this miserable swine at mass on the 24th not paying an entrance fee to get into a public house.
Ho ho ho

Your all miserable buggers aren't ya!? Nothing wrong with a bit of Christmas cheer. Suppose you think the great lights in Runton Road are a waste of electricity too?

I agree the meaning of Christmas has somewhat been lost in translation but it's the smiles on the faces of the kids and 'giving' which make this time of year the happy time it is.

It must be hiding somewhere. The Big Red Articulated Giant, lit up like a Christmas tree, went through the Poole Civic Centre A35 System late last night, travelling east towards Bournemouth. I like the truck, to look at, but the best sort of "coke" that I know of, is the sort you burn in the hearth. Merry Xmas.

Indeed...You left out the part that CC (swear word) is by far now associated with the classic Santa image. IE they've spent billions over the years & have basically become masters of the commercial Santa. Those before were rather 'small time' & were not selling soft drinks or particularly marketing a particular product.
Why would they continually use the image of a coke addled, diabetic fat C&&T if it wasn't to their advantage?
Personally I hope the truck breaks down. It's the worst of capitalism & CC entails ALL that is wrong. No surprise that it's a USA firm...

Yes! Why should we all get drunk and eat our weight in food?
I'm more of a Dr Pepper person (only one due to the amount of sugar) but I like seeing the truck. I saw it arrive in the Triangle and it's quite cheery among the gloomy weather.

Glad I listened to a friend and didn't bother with all the traffic and cues of people! All I can say is watch the real Coca Cola advert. Looking at the pictures, it looks like a right let down, its just a UK lorry TRYING to pull of an American truck!!!!!!! I bet Coca Cola are making money on this.
