Last year Dr. Pepper rolled out this series of commercials for it's Dr. Pepper 10, in which it claims the low-calorie soft drink is "not for women." Seems a little sexist if you ask me, but what the hell do I know? I'm in the business of selling soft drinks, not producing them. (Also, why risk pissing off half of your potential number of consumers.)
A while back, one of my female coworkers happened upon a can of Dr. Pepper 10.
She looked at me.
I looker at her.
"What do you think," I asked her. "Wanna risk it?"
"Sure," she said.
That was last September. Since then:
* She has not died.
* The police have not banged down her door and dragged her away in handcuffs, or worse.
* She's much healthier than before, largely as a result of joining a gym.
* She doesn't look any more manly.
* She's been promoted.
Long story short, her life has gone pretty well since consuming this beverage.
I haven't seen this commercial recently. Maybe Dr. Pepper is finally admitting to quackery.
