The New Jardiance Commercial Lady Has The Internet Divided..........Again

Just as navigating our nation’s healthcare system is a uniquely American experience, so too is the subsequent onslaught of prescription medication commercials, which have made brands like Skyrizi and Vabysmo as big a part of the television landscape as Bud Light and Toyota. They’ve also become a popular subject of online scrutiny. For the crime of singing an ear-worm jingle about a diabetes drug, the Jardiance lady — actress and singer Deanna Colón — caused a heated debate online, where she was both scorned and defended by the masses. The impassioned, at times cruel, response to Colón's performance​​ could be why the company selected a new actress, Rachel Strutt, for the latest Jardiance commercial that dropped in January. That hasn't stopped the Jardiance peanut gallery from chiming in to share their thoughts on the new commercial star. While Colón’s commercial was compared to a Broadway musical, Strutt’s performance in the new commercial prompted one user to write: “My hate has slightly decreased.” Meanwhile, Colón’s fans are waiting in the wings to defend the actress, with some even saying she’s the “true Jardiance queen.” The Jardiance lady chronicles may be a heated, niche corner of the Internet, but those caught up in the frenzy can agree on one thing: the song still stinks. As one YouTuber put it, "Oh geez, 3 more years of this song 8 times a day.”
