Commercial Break: Scathing Duffy ad parody proves it's a nice world after all
In the morass of bad ads that are currently out there, it doesn’t get much worse than odd-faced Welsh warbler Duffy’s spot for Diet Coke where she inexplicably leaves one of her own gigs to go off for a quick bike ride around a supermarket for a couple of minutes while quacking out a half-baked song.
A farce – they won’t let kids in wearing Heelys so how a Brits winner is allowed to zip around on her bike is beyond us. Anyway, there’s a link to the ad here – we’re not embedding it ‘cos it’s bollocks.
Thankfully, comedy duo Him & Me have come up with a parody of the ad and bunged it up on YouTube. Mercifully, considering it’s a parody, it’s actually funny, with a wicked twist towards the end. So here it is. Enjoy. With a can of Pepsi Max. Because we shouldn’t have to put up with Duffy.
