Heads Up, 7UP

School is keeping me too busy to write anything of merit. Or even anything slightly interesting. In the meantime, I hope you’ll enjoy the below video, which comes courtesy of YouTube. It’s a 7UP commercial from 1982 and it reeks of the 80s. If you think about it too hard you’ll realize it’s quite nonsensical. It seeks to capitalize on the Pac-Man phenomenon that was then underway, but it really gives you zero reason for thinking you yourself ought to drink the beverage (alternative “Bette Davis Eyes” lyrics notwithstanding).

I’ve ran into a handful of quirky and/or cool videos on YouTube. I’ll probably post some at a later date. Until then…

    I don't remember that one. I wonder why?
