Still: this advertisement would not have shown up in these people’s feeds if they hadn’t taken the time to make friends with a cookie on the internet. So this is maybe not the most accurate barometer.
i’m thinking of drop kicking EVERYONE OF THESE ASSHOLES!!!! #fact
already one of my favorite Super Bowl ads AND not just because i’m MILDLY obsessed with Amy Sedaris. ;) thanks @rieur1114! #checkitout
Dr. Pepper’s Battle of the Sexes
I’ve had a surprisingly amount of twitter folks ask me about the recent campaign for Dr. Pepper’s 10 calorie drink targeted at men. I guess they think I’m obsessed with the soda for some odd reason. *wink wink nudge nudge*
Personally, the campaign doesn’t offend me as a woman. They’re making fun of the exact audience that they’re targeting the drink at; men and men don’t want to drink girly diet soda. Slap some gun metal on a can with some bold lettering and your penis will grow instantly. It’s ridiculous and stupid. If there is a guy out there who actually thinks this drink will make him appear more manly in public, please step up so that I can assure you it does not.
As a consumer of Dr. Pepper, it does piss me off. Why mess with the best and the best is regular Dr. Pepper. The 23 flavors of flawlessness. The magic in a can instantly brings me back to my childhood and literally gives me that taste of the midwest in the big city. I guess they have to compete with Coke Zero and Pepsi One, but my beef has always been that if you’re going to drink soda, you’re already fucking yourself so go for the gold! Drink regular soda in moderation and be happier. :)
Until then, ladies drink your Diet Dr. Pepper. Fellas, drink your Dr. Pepper 10. I will continue to drink my regular 23 flavors proudly and without getting my panties in a bunch. #drpepperforlife
