The Christmas Coke Truck is Now the Diet Coke/Recycling Awareness Lorry

By Gary Cutlack on at

Those bloody political correctness elves have been forcing the hand of soft drinks behemoth Coca-Cola to be more modern and responsible, with this year's UK tour of the red Christmassy Coke lorry turning into a boring old lecture on the importance of limiting sugar intake and recycling your spent bottles.

This comes from Coke's European division, which said the controversial lorry will be adver-touring the UK from mid-November, but in a nod to the modern demonisation of sugary drinks will mainly be handing out Coke Zero and Diet Coke to communities where local councils agree it can park up in -- with 240,000 bottles and cans set to be handed out in the name of cementing the lifelong of ordering a Coke even if the menu specifically says it's Pepsi.

Recycling signage will also feature heavily around the improvised truck stops, hopefully teaching the kids of the future to not dump their spent fuel casings around the local environment. Next year they'll be debuting a buff silver fox Santa, who lost seven stone on the keto diet and is now going out with a 22-year-old from his local gym. [Talking Retail]
