Diet Coke Moves Up a Class with Droga5

By Patrick Coffee 

Ogilvy may be handling the Coke Zero account now, but this new Droga5 campaign for sister brand Diet Coke would fit the client well: it’s all about the flavor, see…

The “Economy Class” spot’s protagonist is a washed-out airline customer awakened by the unstoppable flavor of Diet Coke…until she realizes that the visions of shaggy dogs and upright bassists dancing in her head are just that.

The larger campaign’s theme, of course, holds that Diet Coke offers consumers a taste of “The Good Life.”


This spot will debut on Wednesday’s Nashville premiere, but it’s really just a taste…coming weeks will see the debut of two new spots, one of which stars Taylor Swift.

You’ll have to be satisfied with credits after the jump, though. The client included the second spot, “Car Wash”, in the credits and the press release but didn’t feel like sending the actual work out to press contacts.
