I Love the 80s:Cola Wars
While being the era of the battle of the network stars, the 80s also served as a battleground for America's cola choice spawning some classic ads like Coke is It!
and Max Headroom
's "Catch the Wave." Michael Jackson schilled for Pepsi
: the New Generation until this ad when his hair caught fire.
In typical 80s fashion the competition for the number one beverage choice in America escalated until in 1985, Coca-Cola and Pepsi were launched into space
aboard the Space Shuttle on STS-51-F
The companies had designed special cans for use in zero G conditions but failed to work on the refrigeration and gravity problems. The experiment was deemed a failure by the crew, but gets serious points for me for sheer wackiness. Classically 80s.
