Train + Coke = "Shake Up Christmas." The song is a key part of Coca-Cola Co.'s new Christmas advertising campaign, reports Reuters. Train singer Pat Monahan wrote the song specifically for a Coke ad, which isn't always the most easy way to be creative! However, Mr. Monahan got inspired to write purely for an ad -which is akin to "selling out"- by approaching the process as a "‘how can I help spread some happiness?'" type thing.
The song's catchy chorus goes a little something like this: "Shake it up, shake up the happiness/ Wake it up, wake up the happiness/ Come on y'all, it's Christmas time."
Are you looking forward to the holiday season and to hearing "Shake Up Christmas" in a Coke ad? Just don't shake up your two-liter of Coke!
