LONDON - Santo London has created twelve 10-second idents for Coca-Cola featuring a man celebrating a goal by hugging a series of unhuggable strangers.

The spots, called The Unhuggables, will air across Europe and in the UK during the final stages of the Euro 2008 football championship.

The spots feature a man in a bar drinking a bottle of Coke just as his team scores.

Reaching out to hug someone in celebration, the man is greeted by a series of unhuggable characters including a beekeeper, a goth, a urinating statue, a giant and a cymbal-bashing monkey.

The ad closes with the line: “Football from the Coke side of life.”
