This ad takes “refreshing” to a whole new level. A sexy gardener and a bunch of gawking gals has heads turning around the globe… and most of the on-lookers seem to be smiling. I first saw this commercial online though, not on TV. A friend shared the YouTube link with me yesterday and I realized this ad was quickly becoming a viral smash. Some of the catchiest and most popular commercials have a successful double life as super-popular viral videos.
Coke and Diet Coke have always put out ads and commercials that get people talking, and this latest hit seems to be no different! ABC News posted this video story about Diet Coke’s Sexy Gardener advert and how it matches up to a famous 90′s Diet Coke commercial that turned heads twenty years ago with a shirtless hunk and oogling gawkers. Do you remember that one? If you still smile when it’s 11:30, I know you do!
What ads catch your eye? What makes a commercial so memorable? What is it about some that end up going viral online as shared vids?
Methinks this one is all about the eye-candy – and I’m not complaining!
