Says Jock Mooney of the spot, “The deceptively simple look of the short was achieved by a lot of hard work to ensure the transitions, reveals and flow looked effortless.” Alasdair Brotherson adds, “It was great to do a nice festive character animation piece again, they’re always so much fun!”

“Wrapping Paper” focuses on sharing holiday wishes. By sharing your holiday traditions, what you are thankful for or who makes you happy, Coke will reward participants with points that can be redeemed for items.
