Until I found this on youtube I couldn’t remember what it was for but I always loved this commercial. This is exactly what might happen if a cartoon jumped off the container and started shilling orange juice at you. I’d like to see the follow up commercial where the dad hunts the little solar flair down and dowses it with a fire extinguisher all the while yelling, “die, die, die you evil spawn of the devil!!!”
Did it work to sell Sprite? Maybe, but I wasn’t upset by the interruption and in fact would stop on this commercial if I came upon it while flipping through channels.
