History of the Coca Cola trucks!

1995 – The Coca‑Cola Christmas trucks were first created by agency W.B. Doner for the company’s new seasonal advertising campaign. Known as ‘Christmas Caravans’, the illuminated vehicles were made even more enchanting with special effects by the world-famous Industrial Light and Magic – who had previously worked on Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Did you know? Three 18-wheel ‘props’, each covered in more than 30,000 bulbs, were used to make the 1995 ad and crafted to look like a never-ending fleet of trucks

Images of the Coca‑Cola Santa by artist Haddon Sundblom decorate the sides of the trucks. Just before the ad ends, the Santa on the back of the final truck raises his bottle of Coca‑Cola in a holiday toast.

1996 – The trucks returned in 1996 and helped to introduce the new Coca‑Cola Christmas packaging. The ‘Santa packs’ featured their heritage Sundblom imagery and were available in the USA, the UK, Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa, Singapore, and the Philippines.

1998 – The ‘Christmas Caravan III’ advert was broadcast in more than 100 different countries to millions of viewers. It remains one of the most widely-used Coca‑Cola commercials ever produced.

1999 – ‘Journey’, the fourth advert in the Coca‑Cola truck series, was released. The footage sees the trucks spring to life in front of a young boy and his grandfather as they sit at home reading a Christmas storybook. The advert was filmed in snowy Vancouver, Canada using three trucks (which computer generation later made look like a never-ending fleet of trucks), and a cast of 40 people.

This year, as a special celebration, Coca Cola’s iconic Christmas truck will be touring around the UK, bringing Coca‑Cola magic to people up and down the country. Covering 100 towns, cities and supermarkets across Great Britain and Ireland between 14th November and 23rd December 2011, the Coca Cola elves will be surprising consumers with a selection of festive treats. Check out the nearest place you can see it here!

Did you know? Each truck…

  • Weighs 40 tonnes max
  • Measures 16.5m in length, from the front of the car to the back of the truck
  • Is 4.1m tall
  • Is covered in 3,200 light bulbs

In total, the Christmas truck tour covers…

  • Approximately 5,000 miles in distance
  • That’s about 100 stops in total!

Bert and Ernie will not marry!

While catching up on all the news this week TruffleShuffle spotted an amusing story about two of our favourite Sesame Street characters and just had to share it with you! Sesame Street makers have confirmed that Bert and Ernie, best friends forever will not be getting married as was hoped by fans.

The odd pair first appeared on our screens in 1969 with the intention of teaching children that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves. Despite numerous campaigns and petitions calling for the couple to get married the Sesame Street show makers have decided that the duo shall remain very good friends!

For now the quirky characters including other Sesame Street friends Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Oscar The Grouch and The Count will continue to entertain 120 million viewers across 140 countries, pretty impressive we think.

With such a huge fan base we thought we would introduce our amazing new collaboration with Sesame Street! Exclusive to TruffleShuffle, each limited edition design has been inspired by old school music iconography for the ultimate in ‘Street’ fashion. Available in both men’s and ladies sizes, which one spins your decks?

Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street……?!

YOU EEDIOT!!

There was an air of happy happy joy joy when we heard Chunk were doing a range of Ren and Stimpy tees. To celebrate here’s a cocktail of moments to remind you of the intense, sometimes gross comedy of the psychotic Chihuahua Ren and his dim witted life partner Stimpy.

I can’t believe we got to watch this as kids, the twisted, disturbing and most of the time disgusting humor of Ren and Stimpy is firmly lodged in the nasal cavity of our generations subconscious mind!

If you remember any gross out Ren and Stimpy moments be sure to let us know and don’t forget to cast your grubby eyes over our new Chunk range of Ren and Stimpy tees including the especially for us, exclusive ladies designs!
