About a month ago, I did a post about my morning BFF, Coffee (glorious coffee) and y’all chimed in with your beverage of choice. It was lovely bonding experience and I got to see the BEST coffee mugs.
Julie Glover mentioned that she had new mad love for Dr. Pepper TEN (DP10 for short) so I looked it up. Nifty slogan!
10 bold tasting calories with the same authentic 23 flavors of Dr Pepper. That’s a whole lot of taste in one can.
Side Note: Some of you might know, I gave up TV for writing back at the beginning of 2011. It doesn’t mean I don’t avidly read Amber West and Tiffany A. White‘s TV reviews. I do (and I think you should too!) They’ve made my TV moratorium much easier to bear.
But very rarely, my lack of television and advertising makes me miss out on something hilarious, like the entire DP10 ad campaign.
Did you see the commercials? They were targeted at men, and were both funny and ridiculous:
The YouTube commercials say DP10 is just for men, but surely we don’t need a penis to drink it, right? I’ve met Julie and she’s as girly as they come. I’m just sayin…
The most interesting thing to me about this ad campaign is that Dr. Pepper’s sales went DOWN as a result. The women were pissed off, which seems like a bit of overkill to me. We’ve got plenty of girls-only ads and the only male reaction we get is, “Ooooh, pretty women in a commercial!”
For my male readers (and my females with dudes in their lives), enquiring minds REALLY want to know: Do you drink diet beverages of any type? Do they make you (or the dude in your life) feel less manly?
And if you need more of a Monday giggle-snort, read this post from “Hahas for Hoohas”: The Fart That (Almost) Altered My Destiny. Seriously, they had me at “hoohas” but this post made me laugh so hard, my husband ran into the room to see if I was choking.
Here’s wishing you all laugh so hard you snort over something this week…
p.s. Natalie Hartford and I are doing a blog swap tomorrow! She’ll be here for Techie Tuesday and I’ll be at her place for Twisted Tuesday. Squeeeee!!!
