Coke Rewards or Pepsi Stuff

Of course I am collecting both. I currently have over 800 My Coke Rewards points, and around 10 Pepsi Stuff points. I have a bunch more Coke points because it's been going on for a while now, while the Pepsi promotion just started a few months ago. I get a kick out of punching in the codes and checking out what prizes I might get. Nothing cashed in so far, but I have my eye on a few things.

How many points do you have? Any prizes picked up so far?

Crystal Gravy

For some reason I've been thinking about Crystal Pepsi a lot lately (much to my friends' chagrin). I've been loving this "Crystal Gravy" mock commercial from SNL. Take a look below:


More New Coke and Diet Coke Bottles!


I'm not sure why but whenever I do a post about new bottles, cans, or new bottle design, I get soooo many comments. Well take a look at this new (classic) bottle from Coca-Cola.

From BevNet.com: "Coca-Cola North America (CCNA) ... announced the introduction of a special vintage Coca-Cola bottle called the 1906 Diamond Label, which hits stores nationwide this week."

Looks really cool. What do you guys think?

Diet Coke Plus FTW!


Actually I'm a bit tired of seeing "FTW!" plastered all over the Internet, but it definitely is the case here. Have you ever seen anyone so excited to have some ice cold refreshment? I mean besides me, haha.

Thanks to The Consumerist.

Mary's Rap

I had the privilege(?) of watching Three Men and a Little Lady this past weekend. Not a lot to say about this under-appreciated gem that this clip from this film can't convey:




Yes, indeed, someone in 1991 thought it would be a good idea to have Ted Danson, Tom Selleck, AND Steve Guttenberg rap...on film! Wrap your head around that.

Dr. Pepper, Kings of Marketing?

As a GNR fan from back when I used to watch November Rain on MTV every day, I was floored when I saw this genius promotion from Dr. Pepper.

The pertinent part from:

Official Dr. Pepper Press Release

DR PEPPER WILL GIVE EVERYONE* IN AMERICA A FREE SODA IF AXL ROSE RELEASES NEW GUNS N’ ROSES ALBUM, CHINESE DEMOCRACY, IN 2008

*Guitarists Slash and Buckethead Will Not Be Eligible For Free Soda

What a great campaign! I don't think anyone thinks that this album will ever actually be released, but I'm looking forward to that free Dr. Pepper. Make mine diet!
