The Coca-Cola Christmas truck has become a hallmark of the festive season, with hundreds of people queuing to see the vehicle visit their city each year.
The truck first appeared in 1995 as part of the brand’s Christmas advertising campaign.
The original advert, known as the ‘Christmas Caravan’, saw endless Coke trucks passing through multiple hillsides, valleys and towns.
It was created by ad agency W.B. Doner and featured the special effects of the renowned company Industrial Light and Magic, which previously worked on the original Star Wars movies, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Forrest Gump.
According to the Coca-Cola Australia website, each truck featured in the advert was a ‘40-foot, 2-ton ‘light brite’ on wheels with more than 30,000 bulbs’.
