I got to see Radiohead last night, and I couldnt help but recall this, possibly the most shamelessly 90s ad ever.

remember when Taco Bell bought the liberty bell?

prank by taco bell. but it was a legit ad campaign for a legit product, so Im not sure if this is entirely an "ad in disguise"

I vaugely remember drinking this, and thinking it tasted like a mix between pepsi and 7-up. Wouldnt mind it coming back so I can have another taste of it and see how good my memory is.

maybe they can get Diamond David Lee Roth to sing the crystal pepsi theme song....

also remember having a laugh at this parody commercial from SNL

In addition to today being Bowiemas, it also marks the birthday of someone whose career in the music industry was every bit as significant to me, and I don't mean Elvis. Bill Graham would have been 86, had he not been killed in a helicopter crash returning home from the Concord Pavilion in 1991.

David Bowie at Winterland, 1972David Bowie’s first Bay Area show was a Halloween event at Winterland in San Francisco on Oct. 25, 1972. The show flopped, with only a few hundred people buying tickets to see the young British performer. Bill Graham talked Bowie into returning in February 1976, and that became the first of many successful appearances here. --Bill Van Niekerken in the San Francisco Chronicle, Jan 11 2016

Bill Graham PresentsHis tale is the stuff of legends: a Jew born in Germany in 1931 and orphaned soon after, he was evacuated to France in 1939 and sent to the U.S. in 1941. He lived with a foster family in the Bronx, working as a waiter and cabbie until he found his calling as a rock impresario in 1960s San Francisco. Notoriety and controversy followed--for the next quarter century, he had a hand in everything from the Trips Festival to the Fillmore West to Woodstock to Live Aid to Amnesty International's Conspiracy of Hope tour. This look at a businessman unencumbered by timidity is recommended reading as an often hilarious overview of rock 'n' roll. --from the Publishers Weekly review of Bill Graham Presents: My Life Inside Rock and Out

Happy Birthday, Uncle Bobo. (It's a Deadhead thing.) We miss you, too.

That stuff was so gross. Apparently drinking 21+ year old bottles of it now is a thing. Stupidity knows no bounds. Don't Google that. The results will be disturbing.

"Pepsi Playparks, the 1992 in-store promotion we designed with Pepsi included sell-in materials, in-store displays, and a contest that raised $2 million dollars for Northern California municipal parks.

Ken’s team created the first-ever vinyl wrapped bus in 1992 for Crystal Pepsi. This concept was quite controversial in that it commercialized public transportation. Pepsi was quite happy with the PR it generated — both good and bad. In addition that year"

Like so many other manufacturing businesses, this one has long departed from Troy. It has been bought out by some other company that makes the same kind of stuff, in China somewhere of course.

No. You'll shoot your eye out.

Oh no! It was a classic mother, BB-gun block. "You'll shoot your eye out!" That deadly phrase honored many times by hundreds of mothers was not surmountable by any means known to Kid-dom, but such as my mania, my desire for a Red Ryder carbine, that I immediately began to rebuild the dike.

Heh, I was just kidding, even though Schwartz is getting one. I guess I'd just like some
