Today's ad on the subway that pissed me the f*ck off.

(click image) Drinking Diet Coke is ambitious? Hear that, you parched 13.9 million unemployed Americans? Show some drive!—git off your sofa and go git some of the world's leading waist-expanding, diabetes-causing diet soft drink. You'll be extraordinary in your next interview! And you'll "stay extraordinary!"
Previous NYC subway ads that pissed off copyranter:
Fiji water.
• and America's Peanut Farmers.

And here's the "grand" commercial, via Wieden+Kennedy.

"A large-scale exploration of extraordinary people preparing to go off and do extraordinary things, large and small. These are the kinds of moments that are fueled by Diet Coke".

Total bs.

i get very p-o-ed by the subway ads where there is only one product advertised in the whole car.

does anyone know if those 'single product for the whole car' ads really work?

Yeah, I saw this one yesterday and immediately thought to myself, "So Diet Coke is formulated to relieve me of my ambition?"

I prefer the "Stimulus Packaged" one; leave it to Coke to make light of economic devastation to sell diet cola.

Bill Hicks was right, but you seem alright by me.
