The Hilltop Coke song I'd like to teach the world to sing, adapted from a song by the New Seekers, has been voted the greatest ever song from a TV commercial in a UK voting.
If Crispin really is planning on re-launching the hilltop song as reported they have their work cut out for them if they hope to make it as popular as the old one. ;) According to the Manchester Online story here, the Hilltop song has been "recently remade the ad to promote its new zero-calorie fizzy drink.". Has it gone from planning into post already? Time flies when you gossip.
