Mad Men’s Drinks Replaced With Fanta
In the new James Bond movie, they have Bond switch from martinis to Heineken because Heineken funded the movie. Also, in reruns of How I Met Your Mother, they digitally insert ads for new movies in the background. Even worse than both of those, in recent Mad Men reruns, all the characters have switched from alcohol to Fanta, and Fanta is featured heavily in every scene.
Some of the changes:
Roger’s new drink order: “Fanta, easy on the ice.”
Don’s new drink order: “Big and orange.”
Peggy thinks “Would she think I’m racist if I brought out some Grape Fantas? Guess I better stick with orange.”
“It’s caffeine free, so I’m gonna go sleep in my office now.”
Megan: “Is this thing on? Oh, it’s a bottle of Fanta? Okay, I’ll sing anyway!”
“Don’t go, I got it, I got it..uhhh, Fanta Orange Soda: the cure for the common orange soda. What? This is the Life Cereal meeting? Okay, okay, I got it, Life Cereal: the cure for the common breakfast cereal…Roger, I’m done!!!”
Ever notice they never cut away from Joan walking out of a room? So did Fanta. Kind of offensive ad placement if you ask me.
Now Joan’s like “Uhh, boys…eyes down here on my giant Fanta logo.”
Come on, Don swimming in Fanta? That just seems like product placement overload.
Way outta line! I didn’t pay a $100 cable bill for a 40 minute long Fanta ad.
