My family’s cola allegiance was split between two factions. My father loved RC Cola. My mother love Coca-Cola. Their relationship was like a soda pop version of Romeo and Juliet. I am still not sure how they came together. Being brought up in a mixed marriage, I had lots of options. So it is maybe not a surprise that I would come to love them both, and still do to this day (although now Pepsi and Boylan’s occasionally jumps into the mix).
Coke’s advertising is world-famous and often quoted, but RC also had some memorable commercials. My favorites were the one’s featuring the “Me and my RC” tagline. Of those, this one with the beach talk is by far the funniest.
I especially love when the dog leaps up and catches the very squishy and very fake RC Cola can.
