Taika Waititi's Coca-Cola Christmas advert will punch you in the feels

Coca-Cola’s 2020 Christmas advert will leave you absolutely blubbing thanks to the tale created by Thor Ragnarok’s Taika Waititi.

The New Zealand native – who won an Oscar for comedy Jojo Rabbit this year – was left in charge of the ad, and replaced the funny with some good ol’ sentimentality for the festive season.

The two-minute clip will tug at your heartstrings as an oil-rig worker forgets to send his daughter’s letter to Santa before heading out on ship.

After he becomes lost at sea, the dad makes it his mission to find Santa and deliver it himself, only to arrive at the North Pole and discover that his workshop is Closed for Christmas.

Thankfully, Santa spots him – and picking him up in his iconic big red truck, he drops the man home, and reveals the true contents of the letter was his girl asking for her daddy back in time for the holidays.

Our hearts have officially melted, you guys.

The new ad is expected to drop in the UK in early December.

The Coca-Cola Christmas ad comes as a little spark for fans, who were left disappointed after the coronavirus lockdown meant the annual truck tour around the UK has been cancelled.

Anyone planning to go to Lapland this Christmas will also be disappointed after TUI cancelled all flights to the country again, because of Covid measures.

However that hasn’t stopped retailers continuing to put their best foot forward for the Christmas season – with Amazon, Aldi and Disney all dropping their festive ads already.

The most anticipated ad of the year – the John Lewis ad – is yet to be revealed.
