DIET COKE LAUNCHES ‘REGRET NOTHING’ CAMPAIGN
Coca-Cola Enterprises has invested in a multi-million pound integrated Diet Coke campaign to inspire women to indulge their impulsive side.
The new ‘Regret Nothing’ campaign is a step change from the iconic Diet Coke ‘Hunk’ and follows internal research which revealed that the fear of embracing your impulsive side can lead to self-restraint and regret.
The insight will form the central theme to the campaign, which will include TV and print media advertising.
The advertising push will be supported by social media outreach and experimental activity to drive footfall to retail outlets, while in-store POS will be available to capture the attention of shoppers along the path to purchase.
