As we near the final stretch to Christmas we couldn’t help but want to share some Santa trivia with you! Read on to see the connection between our beloved image of Santa and the all American drink, Coca-Cola!
Close your eyes and picture jolly ol’ Saint Nick in your mind’s eye. Imagine his clothes, facial expressions, and form. Now watch this video. Did your view match up?
A lot of companies partner up to advertise, but this combination was a natural fit and wild success. A wonderfully gifted artist, Sundblom captured the essence of this loving character and it became a staple of Coca-Cola’s advertising, especially around the holidays, while simultaneously coloring America’s view of Santa Clause.
Do you have a favorite Sundblom image? If so find it and post in the comments below!
From all of us at The Loft, we wish you a very Merry Christmas!
