Popular Automaker’s Holiday Campaign Reminds Americans Santa is a Trucker
Little Rock, AR — One of the world’s most popular brands is reminding Americans what truckers have known about Santa Claus for generations.
In its newest 2021 holiday campaign, Ford Motor Company is featuring Kris Kringle driving a semi, loaded with a variety of Ford models, as he travels the country delivering holiday cheer (at least to those who like Ford).
The scene plays out alongside the popular 1966 song by The Temptations, “Get Ready.”
Santa — depicted by actor Peter Koch — opts for a Kenworth tractor that is appropriately decked out with a Christmas wreath and holiday lights.
Two versions of the commercial are airing on various platforms: one that is 15 seconds and another that is 30 seconds.
