Ally Sheedy in a Coke Commercial from 1981


Sheedy would have been about 19 years-old when this commercial hit the airwaves in 1981. This is also the year she starts showing TV credits on the IMDB, so things were really coming together for this young star at this point.

The plot of the commercial has to do with Coke being the most important thing on your wedding day and in it Sheedy plays a denim overall wearing bridesmaid. I always enjoyed these Coke “slice of life” style ads and it is pretty satisfying to find one that has a future star in it.
