Word on the street, mocking these recent official Coke ads:

I don’t think that it’s the Diet Coke what causes diabetes, just saying.

Unless the artificial sweeteners somehow fool your body into thinking it’s getting sugar, uh oh. (I think the scientists are looking into it these days.)

Now myself, the more Diet Cherry Coke I drink, the more they bring me.

At least I think it’s diet, uh oh.

An Arresting Ad Campaign for Upwardly-Mobile Software Americans from Diet Coke: “You Moved to SF with…”

[UPDATE: Lauryn McCarthy is similarly puzzled – she has the cleaned up version of this ad here.]

So, the tagline sort of looks like “YOU’RE ON COKE?” That’s bold, Coca Cola.

Anyway, as seen on Haight Street near Divisadero:

Elevator! Going up!
In the gleaming corridors of the 51st floor
The money can be made if you really want some more
Executive decision-a clinical precision
Jumping from the windows-filled with indecision

I get good advice from the advertising world
Treat me nice says the party girl
Koke adds life where there isn’t any
So freeze, man, freeze

It’s the pause that refreshes in the corridors of power
When top men need a top up long before the happy hour
Your snakeskin suit and your alligator boot
You won’t need a launderette, you can send them to the vet

I get my advice from the advertising world
Treat me nice says the party girl
Koke adds life where there isn’t any
So freeze, man, freeze

Koka Kola advertising and kokaine
Strolling down the Broadway in the rain
Neon light sign says it
I read it in the paper-they’re crazy!
Suit your life, maybe so
In the White House-I know
All Over Berlin (they’ve been doing it for years)
And in Manhattan!

Coming through the door is a snub nose forty four
What the barrel can’t snort it can spatter on the floor
Your eyeballs feel like pinballs
And your tongue feels like a fish
You’re leaping from the windows-saying don’t
Ayaiiiiirrrghhh! Don’t give me none of this!

I get good advice from the advertising world
Treat me nice says the party girl
Koke adds life where there isn’t any
So freeze, man, freeze
Hit the deck!
