Coca-Cola is bringing back its Diet Coke Break ads

The Coca-Cola Co is celebrating Diet Coke's 30th anniversary with a relaunch of the brand's “Diet Coke Break” ad, last seen six years ago.

The new ad, a long version of which can be seen below, launched on Facebook yesterday and will air on TV on 2 March, Coca-Cola said today (29 January). Shot in a similar style to previous ads for the drink, it features a gardener taking his shirt off as a group of women look on.

The first Diet Coke Break ad was launched in 1994, continuing in 1997 and 2007.

The ad is part of Diet Coke's “Sparkling Together for 30 Years” marketing campaign. A spokesperson told just-drinks it is still to early to say which markets the ad will air in. Coca-Cola does not discuss financial spend, the spokesperson said.

The latest commercial strikes a different chord to Coca-Cola's second-most recent offering – an anti-obsity ad warning US consumers they will put on weight if they consume more calories than they use.
