I like how the reporter can't resist saying how delicious it is, despite the felonious advertising. Wonder how much diabetes proofing he got for that...

As a woman, I'd go out of my way to watch commercials for a soda that claimed to make you invisible and immune to sharks. Wouldn't drink the soda, but would definitely watch the commercials.

Sounds like a wrestling move, or a band name

I've never heard of a corn punch but it sounds like it would taste good. Also the dye from the purple corn, some things in the lemon and pineapple, and everything in the cinnamon and cloves are known to have antiseptic and anticancer properties.

But I'm sure that doesn't make up for the sugar -> ass cancer factor.

Nothing can beat Jose Cuervo's "10 feet tall and bulletproof" campaign from the 80's.
