This new ad campaign for Diet Coke, starring Duffy, airs tonight on ITV. The ad, out of Mother London, sees the soft drink shed its associations with scantily clad workmen and instead aims to celebrate a girl’s “right to say no to the pressures of modern day living”.

“It used to be about girls using their breaks to ogle construction workers, but now they’ve got better things to do than sit around and wait for semi-naked men,” say the Mother creative team. “Diet Coke’s now about inspiring women to take control and do the right thing for themselves.”

Duffy was chosen for the ad because “she’s the epitome of the Diet Coke girl”, continues Mother. “Aspirational, ambitious but knows when to duck out and do her own thing. In the ad she celebrates taking a moment to herself by belting out Sammy Davis Jr.’s ‘I’ve got to be me’.”

The TV will be accompanied by a series of print and poster ads starring both Duffy and other models.

Watermarks project

An undoubtedly devastating aspect of climate change is rising sea levels. It’s also one that many people in the UK no doubt find hard to visualise; severe flooding (Boscastle, 2004) and coastline erosion (Holderness, on-going) likely being the closest we get to experience its potential impact. In Bristol, a public arts project that sought to highlight the impact of rising seas comes to an end tomorrow night. Projecting watermark lines onto various buildings across the city, artist Chris Bodle has no doubt made many people stop and think. Thanks to Ben for his initial post on Watermarks at Noisy Decent Graphics…
