Does anybody have the observation skills of a sniper here.

If so, who knows what bike Duffy is riding in the Diet Coke advert. Sorry to all if this has already been brought up.
The doctor said I needed to start drinking more whiskey. Also, I’m calling myself ‘the doctor’ now

    Who is Duffy?
  • Fair play to Coca-cola for employing the hideously deformed in their ads.

    More interested in the bike than duffy. Thinking she was giving the gift of good looks........

    Allegedly a singer - also a bicycle thief (allegedly) :)

    I wonder how many potential new cyclists this advert has put off. Seeing that ghastly thing squeaking away on that bicycle is certainly putting me off the whole thing! (presumably this is what Welsh cats sound like when being strangled....)
    Faster than a tent.......

    She`s got a really annoying babyish voice but she`s an excellent cyclist.

    Go to youtube and search for "duffy coca cola"

    Don't watch the "making of..." video unless you are braced for a load of advert execs using phrases like "female zietgeist"

    It looks to me as if she drinks some diet coke before going on stage, then steals/borrows a single speed with no lights on, rides around at night including through a supermarket and then arrives back at the venue in time to perform

    The single speed has track style drops, a quill stem and deep section wheels
    The tyres have a yellow strip on them. The bars appear to have minimal tape on them and have straight bar brake levers in the centre of the bars- in suicide levers position.
    The Frame is a non descript grey colour with no apparent branding
    The bike makes a racket as it moves
    I think it is fitted with lights but these are not visible as the bike leaves the supermarket for instance

    All the time Duffy is singing a song the hook line of which is "it's gotta be me"

    I must say I liked Duffys big hit song last year but anything since then has been samey
