Remember the classics: Fresca

Posted by lanktank on May 4, 2009

Who remembers Larry? I know you do! And who remembers Fresca? You know, the drink?

I liked that cool drink, why did it go off the market? Not enough sales? I really thought it was a popular drink. Speaking of great drinks that went off the market, Superjuice has disappeared which is disappointing and this is an obscure one, but who else remembers Roxy milkshake? That stuff was the BOMB! Why do they cancel these things?

But I digress: Fresca.

All these adverts contained Larry, usually wearing some ridiculous outfit, if I recall a purple suit with funny patterns and a top hat. He would walk up to the camera, knock on it like he was looking through a peephole and say things like “Oi!” and “Ello!” (He was English – that’s what they say).

To be perfectly honest I can’t entirely remember what he would waffle on about but always, always at the end of his ramblings, he would end off by saying, “Nothing? That’s ‘cos nothing tastes like Fresca!!!” At which point, he shove the can of Fresca in front of the camera. Although since he was English, he would pronounce “nothing” as “nuffink” which made it even more memorable.

Whatever happened to Larry? Last I heard he got deported…

Anyone else? #7

Posted by lanktank on May 4, 2009

Anyone else petrified to go back to a 5 day week?

Anyone else’s internet giving them problems?

Anyone else think Telkom should be flushed down a toilet?

Anyone else like my article on Break-Up Cliche’s but is pretending not to?

Anyone else ever tried these little biscuits by Wicket Treats called Vanilla Kisses? It’s like heaven in your mouth I tell you. There’s something about the taste that takes me back to my childhood…I don’t know what it is.

Anyone else ever wonder how a taste of food can make you reminisce on your childhood?

Anyone else reminiscing on their childhood right now? How about now?

Anyone else get hit over the head with a wooden hammer at the infantile age of 6 months by their older brother?

Anyone else ever been 4 years old, minding their own business in the park, when a mole runs out of a hole, bites them on the ankle and runs back down the hole? They’re BLIND, they live UNDERGROUND! How does that happen?

Anyone else think it’s quiet time now…

(not so) Happy Monday people….
