Taika Waititi was hired by Coca-Cola to direct a Christmas commercial for them and it’s easily one of the best Christmas-themed commercials that I recall seeing. This is just one more reason why I love Waiiti’s directing and storytelling style.
Waititi is the filmmaker behind films such as Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Thor: Ragnarok, What We Do in the Shadows, and Thor: Ragnarok.
He crafted quite a thrilling and adventurous story about a father trying to get his daughter’s letter for Santa just in time for Christmas. You might want to grab a tissue before you watching this because it’s pretty damn heartwarming and sweet.
Here’s the note that came along with the ad:
This Christmas, give something only you can give.
Be it in person, over an awkward video call, or just a quick message, making time for the ones you love is what makes Christmas truly the most special time of year, no matter how you do it.
Wherever you are, we hope you have a good one.
