Okay, let me just say that I don't drink soda at all, but if I were to drink it, I doubt I'd drink any of that sodium packed diet crap.
Dr. Pepper has a remarkably stupid ad geared toward men which features a "Grizzly Adams" type mountain man who carries a whole tree that he cut down, then chews on a huge piece of rawhide that looks like tree bark, then howls like a beast.
He then drinks a diet Dr. Pepper and remarks how good it tastes......uh, yeah...right....that's going to entise me to start drinking that garbage? Do I want to look like "Grizzly Adams" and act a backwoods bumpkin?
I think not.
Their advertisement department should stop using drugs, because it's showing their stupidity from having nullified brain cells.

Funny, considering the rage they got over their "It's just for men, so keep your lady drinks" ad, you'd think this was the LAST thing they'd put on the air.

Why not have BOTH genders? I think it'd offset the ugly mountain man having a cute girl in a flannel top that barely covers the lower portion of her breasts walking around with a massive tree on her shoulder.

Diet and regular contain the same amount of sodium.  Dr. Pepper in general, contains a little bit more than Pepsi and Coke, but not much.  3% vs 4% of your daily allowance.

I love this ad! The only ting missing is a growing bulge in Grizzly's pants when he guzzles the soda and an Enzyte disclaimer. *warning, consumption of man soda may result in natural male enhancement*

Take that ladies! MAN soda!

And no, Cod, the little hillbilly girl shouldn't have a tree on her shoulder, but be riding on the shoulder of that fine specimen of hillbillydom. The free shoulder, of course, he still has a tree to carry.

I don't get why they would advertise Diet DP as a "man" drink, when they just released DP Ten as their manly version of low-cal soda. But I love both and I'm a lady so whatever.

LittleO... NOOOOOOOO!!

You can't drink man soda, you'll start growing hair on your back and lose it on your head, develop an uncontrollable urge to scratch in public, things like that. MAN things!

Seriously though, I can kinda see where some idiot ad exec somewhere thought "hey, we need to get past the conception that diet sodas are for women". Said ad exec obviously a recent thaw-out from 1970s cryo experiments. 

The "both" angle for these 10 sodas had potential, but was horribly executed.

Remember the days when Jimmy and Sally each had their own straw thrust into the same glass of Coca Cola at the diner? And could both sit and sip the same drink? Where did we go wrong?

This was a P10 ad, actually. I just saw it.

LittleO, drinking Man drinks leads to the same effects as a woman taking a Viagra

Pretty sure a "real man" would just drink a regular one and burn off all the extra calories doing backwoodsy stuff.

Remember that Cinnamon Toast Crunch commercial, the one that goes "Hey Ladies!" randomly in an otherwise gender-neutral commercial? Remember when it used to be marketed to kids, and adults were just too uncool and blind to see why kids liked it so much?

Apparently, these things change. One day, they'll be advertising Dr. Pepper as if women drank it, they would start noticing more chest and facial hair than they're used to, then the next you'll have a commercial where a woman bonks a man on the forehead ala V8 for trying to steal her Dr. Pepper.

^I forgot those commercials until just now. Those were rather good. Much better than the women's only cannibalism we get to-day.

Maybe because that show is almost 20 years old?

Also, it's technically English comedy. I don't think any of the cast was from Wales or Scotland. :P

English is a subset of British. I wasn't technically incorrect.

But it implies that the humours of Scotland and Wales are akin to those of Britain. If you want to get REALLY pedantic, it should actually be called Northern humour, as the tastes and cultures of England vary between the North and the rest.

:P

You think this is bad, don't get my started on when someone says "British accent"

How in bloody hell did this thread get to playing clips from a Brit-com.....btw, are you all jesting with me because I'm English?

The DP10 is the "man" ad that I hate, and I still can't stand it.

Thanks for clearing that up, Thor! I thought all of those diet fizzy drinks were quite high in sodium.
Doesn't matter anyway for me, I don't drink any of them.....too bloody sweet!

Women drinking MAN drinks to women taking man pills. Natural progression. :P

Jimmy, I'd never make fun of you for being English. I'd only make fun of you for being from Wales.

P.S. I've come from Urmston. There's two ways to get there.

I heard about one experiment where they left Yoplait yogurt in a petri dish - it ended up growing artificial vaginas.

One needs to be careful to heed the gender specifications the adholes give us - eating the wrong foods can have consequences.

Sure, drink that can of Dr. Pepper ladies - but don't blame us if you wake up with a bulge in the morning.
