In her latest Diet Pepsi national TV commercial entitled “The Dance,” which debuts on the Golden Globes broadcast on Sunday, January 15, 2012, the Colombian actress, model, and star of the hit sitcom, “Modern Family” uses her wit and charm to weave her way through a jam-packed dance floor in hot pursuit of a refreshing Diet Pepsi.
As a booming Latin beat throbs throughout the club, Sofia’s quest proves to be more challenging than ever as she encounters a funky hip-hop dude; a disco dancer whom she comically mimics with hip shaking gyrations; and a suave older gentlemen in a torrid tango – all obstacles that stand in her way from securing the ice cold Diet Pepsi from the tray of a young, wide-eyed waiter.
Sofia’s Diet Pepsi spot was shot at Liv Nightclub at the Fontainebleau Hotel on Miami Beach. At the conclusion of the two day filming, Sofia celebrated akin to the character in her commercial by joyfully dancing with the crew and cast.
The new ad was directed by McG – who also directed the the popular “Beach Tweet” Diet Pepsi commercial starring Sofia Vergara and soccer icon David Beckham.
