Caffeine Free Diet Coke: “Taste Test” (circa 1992)

The stakes are high as these two refugees from a Roger Moore James Bond film face off in a taste test guessing game–of death!

Coca-Cola commercials (late 1980s-early 1990s)

Oh, the late 1980s soft rock. Dulcet, Kenny G-style saxophone tones with some snappy, whispery harmonies punctuating a walk around town. A love story? Maybe.

That music! Those dance moves! Those camera angles! Welcome to the 90s, Coke!

The American Gustation Crisis of 1985 • Damn Interesting

30 years ago today….

In April 1985, it is rumored that a collection of executives gathered at their corporate headquarters for an emergency meeting. On the table before them sat six small canisters which had been smuggled from their chief competitor’s manufacturing plant. Inside the metal cylinders lurked a secret compound which represented the next strike in a long-running war: an altered version of their rival’s incredibly successful Merchandise 7X. The substance was scheduled to be released upon the public within mere days, and these men had assembled to assess the threat. They were aware that billions of dollars were at stake, but the true power of the revised chemistry was beyond their reckoning. Ultimately, the contents of these canisters would plunge the United States into a surreal turmoil the likes of which had never before been seen.
