Funko's Ad Icons Pop figure series just got one of it's most iconic and adorable additions to date - Coca-Cola's beloved Polar Bear! It's been nearly 26 years since the first polar bear commercial "Northern Lights" aired in 1993 and became a huge hit thanks to a simple theme and not-so-simple computer animation. However, Coca-Cola's use of polar bears in advertising is much older than the commercials. In fact, it goes all the way back to 1922.
Still, the holiday commercials are what catapulted Coca-Cola's polar bears to icon status. The CGI for the original was pretty mindblowing for its time and still holds up well today. For those who are old enough, watching it now will churn up all kinds of holiday memories. That having been said, if you would like to add one of the Coca-Cola Polar Bear Pop figures to your collection (or to a stocking) this year, you can pre-order one right here with shipping slated for November.
