Another Favorite Holiday TV Commercial
Often a commercial can present a powerful positive message, and at Christmastime many advertisers want to do just that…send out a meaningful message. This Coca-Cola commercial ranks #2 of Greg “Splashin’” McShea’s all-time favorite holiday TV commercials.
During the 1970s, Coca-Cola assembled a number of people from all walks of life on a hilltop, who became known as the Hilltop Singers. With candles in hand, they sang Coke’s jingle, “I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing (in perfect harmony)”. The song actually became a pop hit across the country. At the end of the commercial, the camera pulls back to reveal that the singers have formed the shape of a Christmas Tree. It’s a wonderful, positive message for the Christmas season.
