Commercial Break: A tribute, as Duffy quits pop
The music world has been rocked into a stupour today with the shock news that Duffy is knocking it on the head. The strange-faced Welsh singstress is apparently walking away from the pop business following piss-poor sales of her second album.
Walking away? Or doing on on a bike, like she did in this memorable ad for Diet Coke, accurately described elsewhere today as “quite possibly the single most awful thing that any one person has ever done.”
If anything, it’s hypnotic in its sheer terribleness. We’ve just watched it 17 times in a row and now it feels as though the very skin from our faces wants to escape by turning itself inside out. Try it! And thanks Duffy!
