The Diet Coke Penguins??


Coca-Cola has sporadically used Polar Bears in their advertising since a French print ad in 1922, but in 1987 it was another cold weather animal’s time to shine. The Diet Coke Penguins appeared in this commercial celebrating the new look of the Diet Coke Machine commercials and they are adorable. Not adorable enough to make me overcome my disappointment at trying to buy a Coke at a fancy new vending machine only to find it has nothing but Diet Coke in it, but adorable nonetheless.
