Strange beverage commercials

Ok, so as I obsessively watch the Olympics, I see commercials. Coca Cola and Budweiser, in particular. And these two are hi-larious! First up, Bud is totally kissing up to Americans and begging them to forgive them for being bought out by the Belgians.

But this Coke ad is even better.

What was the secret formula? Caffeine and cocaine. The drink originally sold as a headache remedy. Considered not appropriate for children. History is a funny thing. (Oh, and read A History of the World in Six Glasses for more on your favorite drinks. Fun read, and fun for interesting lecture factoids.)
