Man, how is it that old commercial jingles sometimes stick in my head for a quarter of a century, but I can't remember the plot of a book I read last year?
The very first Diet Coke jingle has been bumping around my brain lately. This was from 1983, when diet pop was still suspicious. (Fresca and Tab, much as I like them, distinctly have a "diet" chemically taste that Diet Coke managed to eliminate.)
So when Diet Coke came out, rich daddy Coke went all out to introduce its new little cousin with this extravagant, celebrity-filled commercial and a damn catchy jingle. If you're old like me, you'll remember it: "Introducing Diet Coke! You're gonna drink it just for the taste of it! Diet Coke, yeah, Diet Coke! This is the one from Coca-Cola!" (As if a Pepsi product would dub itself Diet Coke.)
Anyway, here's the jingle, and a little glimpse into what my brain has been humming lately, for NO APPARENT REASON.
