Bad News, The Manchester Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Announcement Is A Hoax

By Laura O'Neill

Well, this is bizarre.

A Facebook page, claiming to represent the Coca-Cola Christmas truck has been sharing false information about its UK tour.

The event page, which is hosted by the Coca-Cola Truck Facebook page, states that the truck will be stopping off in various cities across the UK this Christmas, including an undisclosed location in Manchester on December 14 where it will be parked up between 9am and 5.15pm.

However, we contacted Coca-Cola directly and a spokesperson said the truck tour dates and route have not been announced and has advised those wishing to see the truck to keep an eye on the official Coca-Cola social pages.

She said:

“We are currently putting the finishing touches to our Christmas truck tour route this year. We will announce the route in early November via our website and official social channels only.”

Secret Manchester has approached the owner of the Coca-Cola Truck Facbook page, whose previous events including Prince Harry’s Stag Do and Say “Wow” like Owen Wilson on Albert Square, for a comment.


Now, here’s the Coca-Cola Christmas advert.
