Throughout the years, we’ve had some shall we say “different” celebrities appear in ads for diet Coke. If anything, this list illustrates how times have changed -- and how diet Coke has always tapped into what’s popular at the moment.
Here are just a few names – many real “blasts from the past”:
Cabbage Patch Kids
Tony Dow, Jerry Mathers and Ken Osmond (Wally, Beaver and Eddie Haskell, respectively, on “Leave It to Beaver”)
Elmo the Wonderdog
David Liesure (seen as “Joe Izuzu” in car ads)
Ray Parker, Jr.
Roger and Jessica Rabbit
“Wierd Al” Yankovic
