Director Taika Waititi has brought us twisted mockumentary laughs in What We Do in the Shadows, delightful coming-of-age adventure in Hunt for the Wilderpeople, hilarious comic book spectacle with Thor: Ragnarok, and sharp satire in Jojo Rabbit. This year, before getting back behind the camera for Thor: Love & Thunder, Waititi decided that he wanted to make tears come out of our face with an epic new Coca-Cola commercial for Christmas.

Even though Tom Cruise and the Mission: Impossible franchise have become known for their death-defying practical stunts, Daniel Craig and the James Bond franchise have staged their fair share of cinematic mayhem.

Perhaps Stranger Things can pull it off with its upcoming tie-in with New Coke, the infamously despised new recipe of the classic soda that debuted in the summer of 1985, the setting for season 3 of the Netflix sci-fi drama.
