UK TV: DIET COKE COMMERCIAL STARRING DUFFY

When I first saw this commercial last week I CRINGED!!!!

Duffy looks strange riding around on that bicycle and she sounds like a cat that’s being strangled.

Awful.. just awful!

  1. i thought it was just me who thought this ad was awful..at first i thought her voice sounded bad cos she was riding the bike lol. But she just sounds bad full stop

  2. this is a joke right?
    she couldn’t possibly be representing the UK…there’s one in every country, i guess.

    is it me…or am i the only one who WONDERS WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON WITH THE NO TALENT, OVER PROCESSED MANNEQUINS CONTINUOUSLY BEING PLACED ON STAGE?!!!!

    I’m killing myself…TONIGHT!!

  3. I just had a whole turn around on this Duffy/Amy/Adele malarkey…

    At least they are creating job oppurtunity in this climate. Take Duffy- a girl who needs a lot of make up, clothes styling, musicians to come in and play the very clever composers music (probably a mate of Burt Bacharach=Huge$), the heavy PR team working all the hours to keep her in the publics interest.

    When you’re simply talented and beautiful (in an original sense), you don’t give people much mileage…in essense, people like you Mishal are selfish. Look at Prince, playing all those instruments himself and recording them, then greedily knowing how to dance and perform on stage…why not have someone else help him? Noooooo

    Stevie Wonder- so your blind, but you just couldn’t acceot your lot…had to be the bigshot and start writing songs as a child on the piano, sing and play Harmonica..That’s 3 people redundant right there!

    And why should you be writing your own songs- for Gods sakes-you want the credit on that aswell?

    At least Amy is keeping all those Beach resorts employees busy not forgetting Afghanistans Heroin trade..I dunno man, you guys just don’t get it..

    HATERS 4 LIFE.X

  4. How selfish? Why do i hear musicians or composers suing each other over plagiarism. I hear its a cruel industry. I am realy lost on this point. Who employs who? Is it the actual artist or is there some one else other than the artist behind all the employing part. I hear pple talking abt creating an artist image. Am lost here. The band prince performs with, who employs them? Am lost. Help.

  5. Some pple can sing but not write and the reverse is true. If u can do both, why sit on that talent and waste it? Isnt that what defines a true artist? In my opinion yes. In my opinion it gives them more control over a certain part of their career. How is that selfish? Then again, what do i know abt music business. If u can play all instruments play them and let pple appreciate it. Is it not what this business is abt apart frm money making?

  6. Lati lati lati…you need a laughter pill

    I am sorry that sarcasm is lost on you.

    The idea of my post was to expose that Duffy is propped up by so many people to get her crap in the mainstream. However, other artists like some mentioned are amazingly talented and we hear and see nothing of them in the mainstream and if they do get a Grammy or whatever it is after several years of hard graft throough mainly their own doing.

    I jest that in essence we could call a musician, vocalist, songwirter or a producer with their own ideas ‘selfish’ for the sake of sarcasm when in fact I think nothing of the sort.

    I also apologise to myself that I have had to post this…I thought you may have read between the lines….

    There are some who write their own songs-you know, pick up a pen, scribbble. possibly pick up an instrument or call some musicians in to express this. Then there are the others who do this and go a step further by having the ability to play ALL the instruments concerned (Prince). In between that there are many talented people who have a combination of such talents…Hello Ty and Mishal..

    THEN there are some who have NO ability to do any of these (Duffy) but essentially have a voice that can just about pass being recorded in a state of the art studio and more importantly will please the old very rich white CEO of whatever ailing record companies outfit cos she looks like someone he could f*ck or have his daughter aspire to with no ‘dangerous’ repurcussion such as explaining why his granddaughters hair isn’t nice and fluffy like Erykahs….

  7. I know there is an age gap here…..yes, this exactly the same as ranting to right wing neo cons about the joys about being black and God fearing where possible…got it in one. Hi Five.

  8. I think its natural 2 go defensive when attacked. The question is, in the heat of moment how do u tell whether its a bait or not. Its nothing 2 be ashamed of. I am not. But i’ll learn 2 look out 4 baits in future. No offense.

  9. I’m sick and tired of music producers pulling the wool over our eyes, Duffy’s voice was dire during the advert, i’m also sick and tired of seeing white UK artistes being overlooked for these types of campaigns over “good” BLACK vocal artistes like Estelle, Leona Lewis who have superir voiuces over the likes of Duffy, Adele and Amy. Me thinks emperors new clothes
