San Francisco based Pereira & O'Dell created this sweet short film for Coca-Cola to encompass the thankfulness message introduced in 2016 and directed by Oscar-nominated Theodore Melfi (“Hidden Figures”). 

“Getting the chance to work on this campaign was a joy and a chance to remind myself what makes Christmas so special: sharing kindness, love, and the spirit of goodwill with everyone we come in contact with. And Coke is the perfect way to express the feeling of Christmas,” said Melfi
