Diet Coke launches Aussie campaign fronted by US tween star Chace Crawford

Chase CrawfordDiet Coke has launched a new Australian campaign to promote a large scale on-pack giveaway – fronted by American tween star Chace Crawford.

The ‘Reward Your Mood’ campaign asks consumers choose one of 23 moods to represent them, enter it on Coke’s website to redeem a reward from every bottle purchased.

The campaign centres around the Coke Unleashed website and Facebook page, with activations in store at point-of-sale, out-of-home, and an experiential ‘Diet Coke’ consumer activation in Martin Place with Chace Crawford. The giveaway includes music downloads, movie rentals, nail polish and free Diet Coke.

Pamela Wyatt, Diet Coke’s marketing manager said in a release: “This year we are breathing new life into the ‘Diet Coke’ classic marketing campaigns of the past by partnering with Chace Crawford who is definitely popular with young Australian females. ‘Diet Coke’ advertisements featuring a male as the hero were first developed in the 1990s.”

Chace Crawford is primarily known for his role in Gossip Girl and features in the new film What to Expect When You’re Expecting, which debuted strongly at the Australian box office last weekend.
