In a nod to Taylor Swift’s inspirational sayings and award-winning lyrics, Diet Coke has created a collector’s edition can in celebration of extraordinary individuals across the country. The limited-time Diet Coke® Taylor Swift can 6-pack will be on beverage aisles nationwide in October and November, and is sure to catch the eye of people who enjoy Diet Coke every day to stay on their “A” game.
Seven-time Grammy-winner Swift is known for always staying true to herself, whether in the recording studio, on the red carpet or performing on stage, and her extraordinary individuality serves as the inspiration behind the collector’s edition Diet Coke can. Each 12 oz. can is adorned in hand-written style with one of her most popular sayings: “If you’re lucky enough to be different, don’t ever change.”
“The Taylor Swift collector’s edition Diet Coke can is a way for us to celebrate the individuality and creativity that inspires people to achieve their dreams and be anything but ordinary,” said Lauren Radow, associate brand manager, Diet Coke, Coca-Cola North America. “Taylor’s message is simply extraordinary. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.”
The collector’s edition is the latest evolution in Diet Coke’s multi-year partnership with Swift as the centerpiece of the brand’s iconic Stay Extraordinary platform. Brought to life by San Francisco-based agency Turner Duckworth, the bold design features Swift’s popular quote handwritten in Diet Coke red along with the singer’s logo, which wraps the 12-ounce can. While the look has changed, the taste remains the same and the can will still be easy to recognize as the number two beverage brand and number one zero-calorie brand in the nation.
In-store and point-of-sale advertising inspired by Swift also will support the launch of the new can. In addition, visitors to MyCokeRewards.com can redeem “double points” from their collector’s edition 6-packs for exclusive access to Taylor Swift prizes, gear and insider information about the extraordinary global superstar.
