Diet Coke 25th Anniversary Silver Slim Can Debuts Next Monday, July 9, 2007

J

Save the date.

The cans will have the same shape at the new UK versions (above) sans color, with a more elegant silver tone.

Silver Surfer fans: your libation has arrived.

I must say I am kind of surprised Coke didn't see the marketing potential of this dream megamashup.

But perhaps that's why I'm writing this instead of hanging with the surf dude, what?

If my crack research team ever rouses itself, I'll put up a photo of the silver can.

Note added at 5:34 p.m. today:

Shawn Lea, head of my crack research team, clearly had her feathers ruffled by the snarky last line of today's 11:01 a.m. post: an hour ago, the following comment from her appeared in the sidebar:

"I have a picture [below] of the Silver Surfer Dude from the movie theatre. An actual picture. While doing actual crackpot research. On some movie that was playing. Really. I took notes. Does that count? ;)"

I have a picture of the Silver Surfer Dude from the movie theatre. An acutal picture. While doing actual crackpot research. On some movie that was playing. Really. I took notes. Does that count? ;)

I can't wait -- I love those skinny cans. Now I have to get me some tall skinny straws.

However, a question, regarding the posted picture. Second can from the left -- is that the signature of Jerry Lewis? Jerry LEWIS? As in "Hey Laaaaaaady!" or "C'mon, Dean"? The revered in France, thought he was Chaplin Jerry Lewis? On Diet Coke? Hunh?
