Liv and Oma Liv and Oma

The commercial is funny. However, I think it should have been more about Dr. Pepper and less about sports. It was creative, but I feel like they could have done a lot more. Knowing how loyal people can be to certain brands, I wish they would have been mad about him drinking a different product instead. Now that would have been funny.

Not sure about this one. Wouldn’t you want people to drink your product because they want to rather than because they thought it was the only one available? I don’t think this was their best effort at an ad campaign. Mom and Dad are such fanatics that they lead their son to think soccer is a “gateway” sport (drug) and that Dr. Pepper is the only soft drink choice. I don’t know.
