Okay, so it’s just soda; everyone’s favorite girl next door is still a suitable role model for your young’uns
(even though diet soda is bad for you too). Diet Coke’s first commercial featuring Taylor Swift is up, only a few days after its rival, Pepsi, released a new commercial with Beyoncé.
In the commercial, Swift is shown in different settings, writing out the lyrics to her single, “22,” while drinking Diet Coke to fuel her creativity. We also see and hear a few fans singing portions of the song, whether they be driving, frying food, or sitting with their own acoustic guitars (such a versatile song!). The fully recorded song begins to play as T. Swift takes to the stage, and we’re told to “stay extraordinary.”
I’m not sure if this commercial really told us much about its product, but it’s hard to name one that does nowadays. I will say that it was cute, and both Taylor Swift and Coca-Cola having red as their trademark color worked out nicely. Does it compare to Beyoncé’s Pepsi ad? Probably not. Oh well.
