It’s the early Nineties and Paula Abdul is selling Diet Coke

The late eighties and early nineties were a golden age for Paul Abdul. She was on the top of her profession and when you are a pop star at the top of you game, naturally you do a commercial for a soft drink giant. Abdul dances and sings her way through this glam ad set in a frozen mansion filled with attractive people and Diet Coke.

I keep waiting for my big break, so that I can finally do a soft drink ad. In it I would dance around a water park that doesn’t actually use water, but instead uses cold delicious Yoo-hoo in all the pools and water slides.
