  1. Interesting, Ray Charles sold out for both Coke AND Diet Pepsi. Would've thought there'd be a problem with that, but I guess they were many years apart from each other.

    Diet Pepsi Ad

    The only reason I remember the Diet Pepsi ad is that it relates to the only joke I can ever remember:
    ME: Did you hear Ray Charles lost his left arm?
    YOU: No way, really?
    ME: Yeah. But he's still got the right one, BAY-BAY!

  2. Oh, Ray Orbison, whyyyyyyyyyyyy whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?

    ...Pooor quoooooooiiiiiiiiiiiiii??!

    No, no! No! No I won't throw my beautiful Orbison records into the fire! Nooo! I caaaant... I can't do it!

  3. it's pretty awful, but then again...i'd do

  4. I'm curious as to your thoughts on the Jack White Coke ad that didn't get any play here:

    Sell out or tastefully done?
