Coca Cola is running “Gardener”, a television commercial starring British model Andrew Cooper. Set to the Etta James track, ‘I Just Want To Make Love To You’, the advert shows a group of young women flirting with a lawn-mowing gardener. A can of diet coke is rolled down the hill to catch his attention, only to cover him in spray when he opens it. The ad was released this week to coincide with the brand’s 30th anniversary in the UK.
