MARC JACOBS BECOMES CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF DIET COKE – RELEASES CRINGEWORTHY ADVERTISMENT
Posted on February 6, 2013
I just can’t at the above….
If you haven’t already heard, Marc Jacobs was named the new Creative Director of Diet Coke, and in true attention seeking style, the designer has released what I believe is by far the WORST Diet Coke commercial ever.
Sure it was just a way of Marc Jacobs introducing himself as being the new Creative Director, (Jean Paul Gaultier and Karl Lagerfeld having taken the helm previously) and there’s no denying he looks great for 49, but it was unnecessary, unrealistic and just plain corny.
Check out the César Vayssié directed clip here.
Diet Coke is celebrating it’s 30th anniversary, and is set to re-launch the iconic 90’s “Diet Coke Man” advertisment later this year.
We can only pray that it erases any memory of the above.
