You Can't Make This Stuff Up

How soon is too soon?
Not soon enough. Laboratory tests over the last few years have proven that babies who start drinking soda during that early formative period have a much higher chance of gaining accpetance and "fitting in" during those awkward pre-teen and teen years. So, do yourself a favor. do your child a favor. Start them on a strict regimen of soda and other sugary carbonated beverages right now, for a lifetime of guaranteed happiness.

So it looks like this was sponsored by the Soda Pop Board of America but I think the American Dental Association might have co-sponsored in order to drum up a little biz in the cavity department. Seriously, you can't make this stuff up. What came before this? Start your child on Winston Lights in order to enhance their social standing? I'll say it again as I've said it before, this is why you must ignore advertising messages. Does drinking soda really have anything to do with social acceptance and approval? No. Are all the messages we are currently being bombarded with really about being 'green' or buying more shit but not feeling as bad about it? I think at minimum 85% of the 'green' campaigns out there a bunch of jabberwocky.

I seriously hate those green ads. I used to consider myself a reasonable person, i.e. my car doesn't pollute much, I recycle, I conserve, etc. Now, those stoopid freaking ads make me want to go buy a V10 and leave my water running all day. The more you push your view son someone else the more they are likely to feel imposed upon, I think. Who are they to tell me what to do, anyway? I realize I am being an extremist for the sake of sensationalizing the ads. In real life I still do the same stuff to be green. I honestly think the ads are off-putting to people, though. It's liek going green has become another fad.

Why am I chuckling? Because the ad is most likely not real or because in our family we joke about not letting babies come home from the hospital until they have tasted Pepsi, chocolate and red licorice. Kind of like a DNA test to see if they really belong to us.

(Please, no throwing tomatoes.)

bluestreak- they did all sorts of dumb stuff. It was before my time but smoking in hospitals, bizarre.

most of the green messages are bs anyhow. They aren't even pushing a green agenda on us, simply trying to get us to spend, spend, spend. Yes, it's totally a fad, another technique advertisers use to make us feel good about spending.

incredible woody,
really right?

it's an old ad but it's the same stuff they are doing to us now, using very deceptive and completely false information to make us spend $.

It's indeed a real ad, but from the 50.s not current. I would fit in with your family 'cept for the Pepsi, I'm a die coke girl all the way.

I want to go buy some pop so I'll fit in now. Does that mean I'm their target market? Shit.

Unbelievable. This is wrong on so many levels I don't know where to start.
