Vegetarian Water


The makers of the Prestige LifeStraw water filter claim that their filter is so good that it produces "vegetarian water."

Prestige LifeStraw uses Ultra filtration with hollow fibre technology that physically REMOVES all virus, bacteria and Cysts, leaving only pure and Vegetarian water with NO germs, dead or alive in it. This is termed as VEGETARIAN water.

Fresh-Up Freddie

Disney characters have touted much merch. But rarely has the studio designed a character expressly as a corporate spokesman. The exception is Fresh-Up Freddie for 7-Up.

But what a godawful mess he was, all over the stereotype map.

In this non-embeddable commercial Freddie is manic like Woody Woodpecker or Daffy Duck. Then he does a Maurice Chevalier imitation. There are real humans and teenybopper birds.



Still manic, but now he's also a "teenager" Fred Astaire.



Some kind of socialite William Powell/Richie Rich.



Texas oil baron.



Now he talks like Speedy Gonzalez, as a bullfighter.



Cowboy.



And last but not least, Freddie has a sex change.

COKE TIME with Eddie Fisher



"Product placement? What product placement?"

The lowdown from Wikipedia.

Follies of the Madmen #215



Does anyone under the age of fifty even know who Felix the Cat is anymore? Having a character born in 1919 as your "hip" cartoon representative seems a somewhat dubious move to me. And Felix is only onscreen for like a millisecond.

Half a Coke and Smile—Share Your Can

The good news -- you can share your Coke can.



The bad news? These were only available in Singapore for a limited time.

The worst news? I want one, but don't know why.

Dr. Swett’s Root Beer

image

Despite having an unfortunate moniker, Dr. Swett's product sold from circa 1845 to 1959.

Read the whole story here.

The trademark is now officially dead and unclaimed, if any entrepreneurial WUvie wants to start the business back up.
