This ad campaign has seriously pissed me off every time I've seen one of the ads on youtube. The sick part being, I would be COMPLETELY HAPPY to have a low calorie Dr. Pepper that doesn't taste like bathwater if they just said "Hey! New low calorie Dr. Pepper! Now with 80% less bathwater flavor!" I would buy the CRAP out of it.
This and the Keith Stone videos for Keystone beer just make me want to strangle a marketing executive who seems to think the best way to build brand loyalty is by completely alienating part of the market.
I just had a panhandler (who proudly proclaimed he's not one of "those cardboard sign guys") tell me that since I didn't have any cash to give him that that was an excuse and I should just go to an ATM. Keepin it classy dude.
What the... wha? Really?! I mean... that's awesome, but... ghetto communist bizarro world awesome.. But... but... I. ARGH?! ... I give up. I don't know if this reaffirms my faith in the world or utterly crushes it.
