Pepsi has Beyonce and now Diet Coke has Taylor Swift. No disrespect to T Swizzle, but where did sexy lawn mowing man Andrew Cooper go? I’d rather see him sweating up a storm than Swift sipping on the beverage. I’m sure I’m not alone.

“Taylor is a true artist, deeply involved in the full creative process, from writing to production to release,” said Stuart Kronauge, general manager, Sparkling Beverages, Coca-Cola North America.

The 23-year-old singer’s “Music That Moves” commercial debuted during last night’s airing of American Idol. The 30-second spot centers on Taylor writing her youth anthem 22. It shows her penning the track backstage of her concert, at her hotel room and at a cafe. Those scenes flip back and forth with clips of Swift’s fans singing the track. The ad, filmed in Nashville, is part of Diet Coke’s “Stay Extraordinary” ad campaign. Check out her new commercial below.

A shirtless lifeguard, an adorable puppy and tequila… sounds like the perfect recipe for a fantastic commercial. In the past, Sauza Tequila has graciously given us tasty drink recipes to share with you. This time around, they’ve provided us with something even tastier to sink our teeth into.

Meet the Sauza Lifeguard, played by the deliciously hot male model, Anderson Davis. This buff lifeguard isn’t just about water safety. He’s all about making one mean margarita. “My favorite S.O.S? You and me, Sipping Our Sauza-ritas,” says Davis. Watch him spread sunblock on his chiseled body, make a Frozen Cherry Lime Sauza®-rita and get wet in Sauza Tequila’s new commercial, “Make it With A Lifeguard.”

If you enjoyed Beyonce’s “Mirrors” Pepsi commercial as much as I did, then you’ll appreciate this behind the scenes clip. I certainly did and I’m sure a few of you will as well. It includes interviews with Bey’s choreographer Frank Gatson and Jake Nava who directed the wicked ad.

My favorite part of the video is the segment with Ty Hunter. He styled the 31-year-old entertainer for this project. Even though we only saw a handful of Beyonce’s past incarnations in the ad, clearly looks from more music videos were planned. I hope an extended version of the commercial is scheduled to drop soon. Recreating some of that wardrobe must’ve required meticulous work. Check out the clip below.

I like Beyoncé but by no means am I her biggest fan. Kelly Rowland was always my favorite Destiny’s Child member. But I have to give credit where credit is due. Bey’s new Pepsi commercial is all kinds of awesome.

The 31-year-old entertainer enjoys the beverage while rehearsing. Out of nowhere she’s confronted with different past incarnations of herself in various mirrors. I wonder if Mrs. Carter was inspired by Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors” music video. Reflective surfaces are certainly all the rage these days ;)

I love that Beyoncé included less-than-flattering versions of herself in the clip. That pink ensemble during her “Bootylicious” days is not good. “Single Ladies” and “Crazy In Love” are among others also included in the commercial. At the end of the ad, she says, “embrace your past, but live for now.” Deep B, deep.

Loving the snippet of the new track as well. “Grown Woman” is so much better than “Bow Down Bitches.” The song has a sorta “Lose My Breath” type beginning. Check out the commercial below.

Normally, I’m a honey mustard or vinaigrette kind of guy, but I might have to rethink my salad dressing options, especially after watching this Kraft commercial. The brand’s new pitchman cleverly called (not) “Zesty Guy” makes a really compelling case to try Zesty Italian. Just be careful not to get too close to the stove like him. Otherwise you might find your v-neck shirt disintegrate, leaving you exposed like Zesty Guy. I guess it’s really our fault. He keeps asking how zesty we like it, causing the flames to go higher and higher, as he adds a bit more zest.

In addition to appearing in the sexy ad spot, Zesty Man will also pop up on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live as a guest chef and bartender. I’m sure Andy Cohen will be happy. Having a hot guy to stare at while guests ramble on is a nice way to pass the time. Plus you can probably cop a feel for the sake of ratings ;) If you want to spread the word about the sassy cook, you can send Zestygrams to all your friends. Check out the commercial below.

What would Miranda Priestly say? I’m sure she wouldn’t approve of Stanley Tucci’s high-waisted jeans and wifebeater? Speaking of The Devil Wears Prada, did you know Tucci married co-star Emily Blunt’s sister Felicity last year? I had no idea.

I don’t know what I find more shocking about this vintage Levis commercial from the 80s. The fact that Tucci was once a former male model or that he had hair. For as long as I can remember, the 52-year-old always sported a shiny scalp. He suits it so well. In fact, watching him act all chachi with thinning hair as a leading man is a little odd. To me, he’ll always be the actor who plays memorable supporting roles in the aforementioned Prada flick, The Hunger Games, Maid In Manhattan and the classic Burlesque. LOL. Obviously, I kid with the last one. Check out Tucci’s Levis commercial below.

Poor Audrey Hepburn. While fellow dead icons like Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly and Marlene Dietrich appeared with Charlize Theron in Dior’s J’Adore commercial, the Breakfast at Tiffanys actress rises from the dead to hawk milk chocolate. Not nearly as glamorous, but I’m sure pretty lucrative for her estate. Her children Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti stated that their mother was a chocolate fan and would’ve been “proud” to be in the ad. Yeah, right!!! Lol.

The Hollywood legend is the new face of Galaxy chocolate. Hepburn is digitally resurrected using footage from her iconic flick Roman Holiday. She’s shown riding in a bus, but ditches it when she sees a hottie in a sleek convertible. The two then ride off enjoying the Almafi coast and Galaxy chocolate of course.

This isn’t the first time Audrey rose from the dead to shill product. Since her death in 1993, she’s appeared in ads for Gap and Ikea. I wonder what will be next. It’ll be interesting to see if this endorsement deal puts her in Forbes Top 10 Earning Dead Celebrities For 2013. She didn’t make last year’s cut. Check out the commercial below.

One of the most annoying things about laptops and iPads at the beach or in the sun is the glare you get, seeing only your reflection when you look at the screen. Although I’ve never tried one myself, the Kindle Paperwhite apparently does not have that issue.

In a new commercial titled “Perfect Day At The Beach,” a man and a woman are side by side in their recliners, both reading their e-books. The woman has no problem because she has a Kindle, but the guy struggles to see anything. They chat about it a bit and he decides to buy one online. To celebrate, they decide they should have a drink to celebrate and that’s where the gay twist comes in!

Such a cute commercial. Watch it below!
