No they don't.
I don't drink that much soda and I'm not one of those people who will drink only Pepsi or drink only Coke Oh me yarm, but there is a definite difference. Pepsi is more...something.
Diet versus regular? Sure diet tastes like regular. Until the aftertaste of unmitigated ass kicks in. My dad and I refuse to drink that shit.
As for advertising, commercials rather amuse me sometimes if they're good. People who scream/yell in them need to die though. I'm into film and stuff and could see myself making one someday.
Generally though, I don't buy anything I wasn't gonna buy anyway even if I do like the commercial. Even as kids my brother and I didn't give a shit about what we were supposed to be asking our parents for. We wore our Payless shoes and no-name clothes and it was okay with us. I'm still not sure why. Most of the kids we knew were all about $100+ Reeboks and Nikes, Tommy Hilfiger clothes, and the bling of the era.
