Glenn Yarborough and the Limelighters sing this classic Coca-Cola jingle.
Welcome to the Retroist Max Headroom Podcast. This week I talk all about everyone’s favorite spokeshead Max Headroom. After relating a memory I have of early computer animation and how I had way too high expectations of it in the 1980s. Then I talk about the mighty Max. I talk about his UK origins, his jump to America, his work outside of his two TV shows and much much more.

Thanks for listening to the show and I hope you have a great weekend.
Convincing people to buy more ice cold soda in the middle of the winter is truly one of Coca-Cola’s most genius marketing triumphs.
I can’t believe this is only from the mid-’90s. I figured this was much older.
When looking for a spouse, may Coca-Cola suggest that one of your criteria for selection be a love for Coca-Cola? How are those flowers being held in place? And notice the locket around her neck as the initials CC. Can you guess what she has in there?
Like any serious soda person, I prefer my pop to be sweetened with Sugar Cane rather than Corn Syrup. I do not have a health reason for this, I just think Sugar Cane based sodas taste better/crisper. Now I have always been more of a Coke drinker, but since Coke has made it very difficult for me to procure the sugar based Mexi-Coke I have started searching for alternatives. That search may have ended with the upcoming release of Pepsi Throwback.
Hot on the foreign release success of other Sugar Cane based projects, the geniuses at PepsiCo have finally decided the give the nation what it has been clamoring for, Real Pepsi (with a different name). I plan on supporting this project unconditionally in the hopes that it will spur Pepsi to make cane sugar a permanent part of their lineup or *gasp* bring it back into production on its flagship brand.
Coke fans should remember that if Pepsi Throwback is a success we will see some copying by the Atlanta bottler. Look for Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback on US shelves this April. Get in line behind me.
