Without further ado, I present to you THE WEIRDEST 7-UP AD EVER:
Items of interest:
- That baby is not only drinking 7-Up, he is chugging that bottle whole hog.
- Closer examination of the 7-Up bottle in the foreground reveals a coagulated mass of green ooze floating in the center. (Original formula, perhaps?)
- There is, for reasons unknown, a tiny little lamb in the ad. Perhaps to underscore that down-home, lamb-shank flavor in every delicious bottle of 7-Up.
- Apparently, at one point, the tagline "Nothing does it like Seven-Up!" was considered fantastically persuasive.
- And finally -- and most importantly -- there can no longer be any doubt as to why we Americans are fat. OUR PARENTS WERE FEEDING US 7-UP AT TWELVE MONTHS, FOR THE LOVE OF PETE!
