If you’ve seen the latest Coca-Cola Philippines television advertisement, then you might have seen a familiar face. The girl in the mint green shirt is the young Thai representative from Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 2, Tia Tavee. Watch the Coke commercial below, featuring the newly available Coca-Cola Emoticon bottles:
And it seems a lot of other AsNTM fans have already picked up on her appearance in the commercial:
The Internet is flooding me with my #Philippines Coke ad. Thanks for the love guys!

This advertisement is actually old. Specifically from a year ago. There’s a Vietnamese version of the ad. The ad is seen across the Asian region in Thailand, Vietnam, and the Philippines. Tia even tweeted about her casting last year:
Shooting another Coke ad for Thailand, Vietnam & Philippines! 36hrs for a 30 sec ad. This is model life!

I wonder why it took that long for the ad to get to our shores. We get a lot of Thai commercials on local Philippine television so it was a nice surprise to see someone familiar. Get that modelling work, Tia!
