Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP) has unveiled its 2021 Christmas campaign, ‘Real magic at Christmas’, a seasonal campaign that spotlights and celebrates community and being together.

The campaign is anchored by a new short film, which is supported by a series of promotional activity across various channels, including consumer-led and charity initiatives, while a 60-second TVC edit will air from 1 December.

The new film follows a boy whose imagination and efforts gather a community’s goodwill at Christmas, creating a shared moment around a festive meal and a Coca-Cola.

With a simple and uplifting message of unity, inclusion, positivity at its heart it aims to remind us that all we need for a magical Christmas is shared moments with community and the ones we love.”
